Working on adding pics & final formatting... meanwhile the C500 body is nearly identical to the C300.

But didn't you buy a Scarlet..? Are you also "glad" for that decision, knowing what you know today?

Re: Canon USA product announcements for NAB2012

Wait.. you actually pay attention to what I write?!?

But yes and still glad that I did. IMHO the Scarlet is the better cinema camera, even though it's at least $5000 more expensive.

However, I'm excited by the C500, it has more of what I hoped the 1D Cinema would have. Of course, I don't expect it to be in the same price range as either of these cameras, and while I like it, it's unlikely to fit my business model. Given Canon's recent pricing trend, I'd imagine it would be close to $30k to compete with the Epic.

Just my two cents. The most exciting thing for me right now is still the FS700's high speed modes. Hot diggedy, cant' wait to get to Vegas and play with that!

The MSRP for the Canon C500 is $30,000. That's a lot of notes to let go of...

Man, last year I spent like 4 hours walking the floor just trying to find a bar... The other hour I spent between trying to get Rob Lohman fired and picking up Panasonic girls (albeit neither succesfully, which I attribute to not being able to find a bar in the show).

Wow -- so you, Dylan, couldn't find a bar in 4 hours..?! Well then, you'll never see me at an NAB show anytime soon (no matter how many 4K cameras they'll rub in my face).

Re: Canon USA product announcements for NAB2012

For those who are looking for a bar near the LVCC, just walk across the skybridge to the Hilton. Should take ten minutes, rather than four hours. :)

I see that Jon already has the all the nearest bars mapped out within nearest walking distance of a 4K camera. :)

Re: Canon USA product announcements for NAB2012

Nah, I'm trying to get everybody to leave the show floor and go to bars so I'll have a smaller crowd between me and the toys.

Hey everybody, I hear they're giving away free beer in the Hilton! (Though at that time of day, free lattes at Starbucks might get a better reaction...) :)

It's a pretty big venue.... plus I'm usually already pretty drunk by the time I roll into NAB at 11am.
...Haven't you seen Office Time Machine?

Will it be priced 5 x the cost of a C300?
