This is the C100 Mark II on a MōVI M5 and a Glidecam slider (with some handheld shots mixed in because the M5's LiPo batteries were shot from the previous rental and could no longer hold a charge).

Re: looking to the canon c100 mark 2

The C100mkII is a great hand-held run-&-gun camera. (or as good as any large sensor camera with a mechanical [non servo motor] zoom lens can be). The beauty of it is the vertical body and the light weight design. With your right hand in the grip and your left hand under bottom towards the lens mount you can reach 90% of the controls with your fingers & thumb. Tuck your elbows and put your eye in the eye cup and you've got a stable stance with 3-points of contact. For non-DSLR cameras i can't think of a better mobile cinema camera. Unless your goal is a larger shoulder mount design... thats a whole different story.

I'd suggest checking out the Sony FS5 or even URSA Mini 4.6K instead of Canon.
