C100 Debut/screening in LA Dec 1st
 
Hey everyone, we are hosting the C100 LA debut at the Canon Hollywood center on Saturday Dec. 1st. There will be an overview of the camera as well as the 1st screening of the Canon USA sponsored C100 short films....one being a narrative piece and possibly well get to see a 2nd Doc piece. Tim Smith, Canon's adviser on the C300 films also worked on these shorts, which will show all the potential of the C100. Canon tech reps will also be on hand to answer any questions or demonstrate the C100 as well as the C300 & C500. It's from 10am to 2pm with lunch provided. You can sign up on the below listed link and there is a $15 registration fee that will be countered by a $15 in-store coupon you receive when arrive at the event (this way will let us know a more accurate count so we know how much food to get!).

Thanks for sharing Jim.

Seems awfully late in the day to have a premiere...aside from the "just c it" clip do you think anything else will be released online before this date?

Good luck with the event Jim and thanks for the update.

If, as I've read, some C100s have already shipped to places like Australia etc., I think Canon would be wise to release any new demo film on the web as soon as it is ready/approved. Tim Smith should know the cams capabilities really well, compared to some of the new owners - and 'owners in waiting' like me.

After the mostly negative reaction resulting from the heavily graded "Just C it!" C100 demo film...let's not go over all that again... what's now urgently needed is a well produced C100 demo that clearly shows, not hides, the C100s capabilities before any more worryingly poor user clips/films emerge (like that recent C100/C300 wedding highlights film - very soft - and terrible moire in the C100 roof tile shots). A much cheaper 3-year old Canon DSLR could have EASILY done just as well (i.e. badly) on those shots!

So Canon, if you're listening, no point closing the stable door after the horse has bolted!

Andy-
Because of the "Just C It" film is why Canon USA is doing these 2 films......and with Tim running the show, I know we will see the best results possible from the C100. When Canon puts the films out on the internet, I don't know.....but, as we all know, footage on the internet does not do any camera justice. I look forward to seeing this/these shorts projected (using a 2K DLP projector) on a 10-12' screen on Dec. 1st.

I had to go on a last-minute location scout that morning so I couldn't make it--hope others enjoyed my $15 lunch contribution!

Charles, I'll have to make it up to you somehow....the event went quite well, the films looked great and the big thing for me about the C100 is that it has the same "magic" chip as the C300 & C500...meaning the same amazing low light, Canon log, and the ability to see both light & dark in the same shot and get them both right. The doc "Pulse" is out and the narrative should be out very soon.Also, some of the attendees were there to decide between the C100 & the C300...many have held/seen the C300 but wanted to compare size, weight, & function between it and the C100.....so quite a few made their decisions that day!

Hi Jim,

Glad your event went well.

Sorry to ask you but I'm just wondering if any of your illustrious Canon guests had anything to say about the C300 firmware update that we have all been discussing on this forum.

Maybe now the initial Cinema Eos launch has been completed with the C500, C300 and C100 (not to forget the Eos 1D C) out on the streets Canon will be able to respond to the huge request for a firmware update to add additional functionality to the C300.

I was told there would be nothing until 1st quarter next year.......what would be in any update, I have no idea....but as I've posted before, Canon, with extensive interviews, focus groups and reading blogs, knows everything that people have requested.

Hi Jim,

Thank's for that update.

It's fair to say that with the huge amount of publicity surrounding the launch of the C300 with user reviews, blogs and clips to watch, that anyone buying the camera would have had a fair idea of what features were included or omitted.

I've had the camera for 8 months now and continue to be delighted with the images it records. I really look forward to going out filming and know that the camera can easily cope with a huge range of light conditions.

So no excuses now, if it doesn't look good I can't blame the equipment.

Have a great Christmas
