Super 35 sensor. Hope its "reasonably" priced. ;)
It will be available from November 2012 at a price of $7,999. (From DPReview)

Now, for bigger piggy banks...:

Canon has officially announced the EOS C500, the professional 4K video camera output that it promised at the NAB trade show in April. A continuation of the concept of the C300, it can capture Raw 4K video footage and offers frame rates of up to 120fps in compressed 4K. It also captures 2K footage (2,048 x 1,080 pixels) at 12-bit, with 4:4:4 Y'CbCr chroma sub-sampling for high colour resolution. The company has also confirmed four cinema EOS lenses alongside it - the EF mount CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S and CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S, and the same optics in PL mount (known as the CNE15.5-47mm T2.8 L SP and CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L SP respectively). The C500's price will be in the region of $30,000.

Re: Canon EOS C100

It looks very nice. It's a shame about the AVCHD rather than MXF but otherwise Canon would have a hard job differentiating it from the C300. They do the same with the XF100 & XA10 which have the same sensor & very similar specs except the former records on MXF on CF & the latter AVCHD on SD but costs 3/4 of the price.

It's got many features that would be very nice to have on the C300 e.g. built-in microphone & auto-this&that especially Push AF. The screen appears to be attached properly to the body rather than on the audio module.

It's half the price of a C300 but I expect there will still be lots of squealing from those who can't even afford a 5D3 complaining that it's not under $2000.

Nice. Poor mans C300 but still, better than nothing.

Re: Canon EOS C100

I like the 'Exhaust Vent' on the left side. Does that mean that the sensor is getting quite hot for the camera to need an exhaust vent? So it begs the question: what about the increased noise, which comes with sensors getting hot? Curious to read and see the first serious test in real world situations.

Not really as one of the big attractions of the C300 is that you don't have to bolt an external box on to record in decent quality nor do you use expensive media like P2 or SxS just decent Compact Flash cards.

The C300 is fan cooled but you can only hear it if you put your ear right up close. The sensor is identical to the C300 so presumably so must be the cooling.

The GH3 is a replacement for the GH2 which is a $1000 stills camera that shoots fairly decent video but has awful ergonomics. There is no comparison at all.

Re: Canon EOS C100

CVP in the UK are now taking pre-orders at a fraction under 5K (including VAT), that's 4,162.50 ex VAT to my business. Very tempting...

Re: Canon EOS C100

I see it selling very well. The big negative is obviously the codec - it wouldn't cost any more, or mean any engineering issues to have produced it with the 50Mbs 422 codec - so why not do so? I think we can all guess the answer to that........

That said, this is firmly in the price camp of the AF100 and the FS100. It's pretty safe to predict from the C300 results that this wll beat the AF100 hands down for quality in several key respects, and the inclusion of built-in NDs and a seemingly more ergonomic form should also give it the edge over the FS100. Whilst the C100 would be better with the 50Mbs 422 codec, with AVC-HD it's no worse than the AF100/FS100 - merely the same in that respect.

Arguably, it's likely to prove the better buy of the three.

True from a pure point of view but if I am paying the money I can compare anything i want :)

The lack of 60p on the camera is a deal breaker for me. I do not have a large issue with AVCHD.

Re: Canon EOS C100

This thing is looking very sweet! Does anyone know if it has a waveform monitor?

The lack of 60p seems like a huge oversight, I almost wonder if it was a mistake in the spec listing. I'm sure the camera is "theoretically" capable of at least 720 - 60p.

Update:

It does have a waveform monitor! Damn you Canon! How much of my money do you want?!?

Re: Canon EOS C100

I think it might be....also, it lists "uncompressed HDMI out with time code superimposed on the screen"....that can't be right. I've a a few calls into my Canon contacts.....and I'm sure Chris is also doing some investigations...

Handgrip is outboard on the side...can't tell if it's one position or multiple.... not much of an eyepiece for the eyepiece shooters.... what were they thinking? :-)

I'm pretty sure the eyepiece is on the back top...

oops, must have misread -

Re: Canon EOS C100

Just got off the phone with the higher ups at Canon......the HDMI out is the HDMI standard 8 bit 4-2-2 color and the timecode is NOT superimposed on the screen.
