Re: Canon EOS C100

In the Zacuto video they say that the EVF is not positioned properly so it will require a Z Finder viewing tube on the LCD.

Will shorty post before and after grading samples from the Demo video, and show how they delibrately crippled the C100 DR to make it look like a DSLR since their perceived market is DSLR upgrades.

Perhaps, but they are trying to shift their own products after all.

Yes, please do elaborate. The C100 manual shows exactly the same curves / DR range at each ISO setting as the C300 manual.

Re: Canon EOS C100

Just a quick update for those of us in the UK awaiting the C100.

I had an email from CVP yesterday that basically stated they still have no idea when Canon will ship the C100 to them (I have my pre-order with Creative Video Products).

I also see that CVP have dropped the pre-order VAT inclusive price by roughly 200 from what it was when the C100 was first announced.

Re: Canon EOS C100

CVP now have it at 4,799 including VAT at the moment (VAT is 20% here in the UK). I will get the VAT back on the price I will pay since mine is a VAT registered company - which softens the pain a little...

Currently, the Euro is worth 0.79.

Re: Canon EOS C100

That's about 700 euro cheaper then in Belgium, a pretty good deal.

Less than half the price of the C300!

Not here in the UK it's not. CVP who have the C100 priced at 4799 including tax have the AF101 at 3918 including tax.

I used to own an AF101 but sold it. I now own a C300 & if the C100 is as good as it looks to be then it is a far better camera than the AF101. The ergonomics on the AF101 were horrible whereas the C300 is lovely to use & it looks like the C100 could be even better on that front.

That's a great price Andy. This camera looks like a real bargain, and yet the whinging goes on. Sigh!

I am shooting in Munich and will post images when I get back next week, unless I can get them sent to me. The DR issue is in the grade of the sample video, the camera has much more DR than is shown in the demo video but the colorist crushed the DR to make it look like DSLR footage. But not sure about the source of the highlight blowouts. Canon is trying to move DSLR shooters to the C100 so perhaps they asked that this sample be graded so that it appealed to DSLR shooters. However, this camera is much better than that. I will show images, a very poor before grading image and the after grading equivalant and you can see the additional DR in the ungraded image.

Looking forward Philip. Is the EVF as bad as you expected? I had the AF100 before and found that EVG too small and low-res already. I wonder how the C100's compares.
