Re: The more I use my XF300...

I've had my eye on the XF300 for a while. I'm apprehensive about purchasing it now in case Canon comes out with a successor soon. Anyone know Canons product cycle on these cameras? Would love to see an XF300 upgrade with better sensitivity (and a better on/off switch ;).

Only my best guess. Since the C100 is the big late 2012/early 2013 launch I doubt we'll see a significant update to the XF300 until 2014 at the earliest. It really does fit a niche in the market, run and gun with mxf format and a small form factor. But I would assume the price will fall, sooner than later. It sits too close to the C100 and too far from it's competitors below it. At the current price I would not have bought it if the C100 was out then.

I'm wondering this as well, if they have something newer coming out in a similar form factor this year.

The Retail Price on the XF300 is $6,799.

BandH has been running discounts for a while, and I just checked today and noticed they are selling it new for $4,995. I don't recall exactly, but that seems cheaper than I've ever seen it there.... ?

I've got a Sony NX5U, and would consider getting an XF300 at that seemingly newer lower price.

Wow, $4999 at B&H. That is pretty far away from the $6400 it was at for a while. I gues it was just a bit too expensive compared to the new JVC camera.
