Anyone else notice that the camera on the left in the group shot of all the new stuff is not the same as the C300 and it's NOT a 5D? And has the same little light on it as the C300...Another cam on the way?
That'll be the 5D3... they'll announce it at the end as "oh, and just one more thing...".... woohoo bornshooter was right!!!
My thought exactly. It looks like a standard DSLR; and they are going to say hey by the way we have the 5d-C have fun with that Nikon.
Or it could be a 1DX just rebadged to fit the "cinema" theme? I'm wildly hopeful that it would be a 5D3, but I somehow would have thought CR guy would have leaked it; however, considering how little was released about this C300, Canon could easily sneak another thing in.
The sensor isn't actually 4K, it's QFHD (3840x2160), slightly (very slightly) smaller than true 4K. The lack of AF and AE is perfectly normal for a PL camera but really weird for an EF camera and, at $16,000, this doesn't qualify as disposable like the 5D2 is. Like you said, it's really poorly suited for fast-moving documentary photography, whatever the subject.
Rhetorical question: how long until Canon introduces the next camera in this line?
My mistake; I noticed that as well, but I pretty much took the Dvinfo article and copied the first things I saw.
