Re: New $2000 rebate on C300/C300PL

I didn't know it sold for that price in the US. I thought it would be quite a bit cheaper like most DSLRs are over the pond.

Sadly I'm not VAT registered so full price for me.

I saw an advert in a camera magazine that said Canon were having a new cashback scheme on some camera and lenses starting 7th March. I doubt the C300 will be included but we can always hope.

I'm going to check out the C300 and C100 at the Canon stand at Focus on Imaging at the NEC tomorrow.

Maybe they will - NAB is soon upon us, and the rule of Sales is that offers are ONLY on slow selling lines. If the C100 and C300 are selling like the proverbial piping-hot post-prandial pudding, there is absolutely no reason to discount them, and Canon reps get to go to their annual incentive event.

Sorry to hear about the VAT.

BTW, I think we pay an extra 15% for video cameras (in terms of duty) because they're deemed to be VCRs under the EU tax regime. This is why consumer camcorders cannot record from external sources and why DSLRs cannot record more than 29 mins 59 seconds of video - they are NOT VCRs and are taxed at 5% upon import (i.e. the dealers pay this). The extra 10% import duty (which is on the price that the DEALERS pay) would push the prices beyond their intended brackets.

Have any of you had issues with the iris wheel on the left side of the camera - the small wheel under the large one? Mine is worn out after 200 hrs - it spins but rarely changes iris. And I'm now out of warranty. I'm making due with iris control on the grip until I can send the camera in. Currently shooting in South America.
