Re: Canon EOS C100

I imagine they just adapted the one for the 300/500

It depends on your line of work. For my line of work I've been very happy to have slow-motion at my disposal. Real slow-motion has such a different look then post slow mo. I'm not happy this cam doesn't have 60P but the resolution for me, nd filters, sensor size, and price is worth sacrificing slow-mo. It may not be for others. It's a tough call. My AF100 does not meet the resolution nor sensor size I can with the C100. No win for this next season for me. Oh well. In the end it's a tool. Others have specific needs then others.

Re: Canon EOS C100

my main line of questioning is why 60p is better than 60i for slow mo.

60i isn't slow motion, it's interlaced.

Re: Canon EOS C100

Also I believe all LCD/Plasma displays are progressive not interlaced. So to use 60i as slow mo you're using 1920X540 once interpolated instead of getting a full 1920X1080 with 60P. You're losing resolution with 60i once using it for slowmo.

60p isn't slow motion either until it's played back at a different speed. You can watch 60p video all day long played back at 60 frames a second and it won't be slow motion.

Where do you see this, btw? They look like loupes to me. Or is that what you mean? (doesn't seem particularly significant if it is). Maybe I missed something.

Re: Canon EOS C100 and Zacuto Z-Finder

Looks like Zacuto have all their add ons already covered/tuned for the C100.

If Canon had put a proper EVF on the C100, instead of that ridiculously small .24" peephole, Zacuto wouldn't have needed to build anything.

Very true!

Although I normally prefer a shoulder mount, I think the C100 is small enough to pull off this style of design, just a shame they deliberately crippled it with a small EVF and consumer codec when the far cheaper XF100 has 50Mbps 4:2:2.

Clearly they are protecting the C300 but makes you wonder what the difference in production cost is between a C100 and C300. It makes the C300 price hike seem very steep.

The EVF & screen look very like the ones on the XF100 & the EVF on that is pretty useless. In fact I just looked up the specifications & while they are identical in size 0.24" EVF & 3.5" screen the EVF on the C100 does have a higher resolution at 960x540 versus 640x480 on the XF100.

I agree, have an XF100 as a little C cam and although I like it, the EVF is one of the weakest aspects. Hopefully the C100's is significantly better.
