EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS C100 & C500 Coming? [CR1]
« on: April 10, 2012, 09:02:49 PM »
The only thing perplexing about this is how they could make a lower end c300?  What could they take out that would give it any chance of competing in the market?  5d3 resolved detail with XLR inputs?

Exactly. An un-nerfted 5dmkiii could do wonders. It still wont have the DR of the c300, but it could certainly place itself on-top of all the existing dslr's out there.

Remember, the c300's biggest selling point is it's ease of use, and the IQ right out of the camera.

This is good news. Ill be very happy indeed.  Hopefully the prices are proportional to the names:

(c100=1/3*c300 and c500=5/3*c300)

EOS Bodies / Re: New Cinema EOS Above the C300?

How come this wasn't given a rumor rating? That guy who tweeted this information is a total clown. That being said, the c300 stats would make more sense if they were planning on something 4k high end. The c300 becomes the tv production camera, the c*** ends up as the camera for films.

35K eh.... good luck Canon. The price point on the C300 was ridiculos compared to functionality, can't help wonder why it should be any better on any new camera.

Look at Sony (FS700 for 8K)... and let's see what Panasonic throws out there in 4-5 days.
Well, if Canon is putting out a camera for $30-35k, then it better compete with and come damn close to Arri's Alexa (2k, dynamic range of film, etc). It certainly has to beat the Red Epic by a good amount.

That said, its still a small niche camera. But, I imagine some of the tech would trickle down to an EOS 4k camera, so, it's at least worth watching for that reason.

Close to ALEXA? good luck with that.... ALEXA is in a class by its own... not even EPIC goes there... you have to work with it and the do the Post Production process to know what i'm talking about here... Alexa is worth every penny. It is like a really amazing Film Cinema Camera simulator... just amazing... the dynamic range, organic film grain and image quality in general vs. the weight of the files is just... jaw dropping.
With EPIC what you might be saving on camera equipment you must invest in post production infrastructure because of the stupidly heavy data it outputs... and without proxys (as in red one) is almost impossible to manage.

But there are also people who say that the c300 produces more accurate colors right out of the camera.  This can be a huge deal for keeping costs down.

I think people are so riled up because the 5d mk iii was so blatantly nerfed, and it's gonna take them a while to get over it.  All the hardware is there, all they need to do is re-work the firmware.

If this is true, Canon would be stupid to not have another camera to satisfy people who're looking at the $5k - $7k range.

It would truly be stupid, Sony will grab the market easily. Also don't sleep on Panasonic. That AF100 is due for an upgrade.

I agree with you, but I think there may be a bit of a turf war going on between their camcorders and CINEMA EOS team. A $5K 4K cinema DSLR would probably cause the Canon camcorder guys to draw their Katana blades.

I disagree with much of the advice given here. The most direct path to your goals, it seems to me, would be the 5D Mk III plus a simple adapter for your Nikon glass.

The dedicated video cameras can't do what a full frame dSLR can do; if you want that cinematic look, then a FF dSLR gives that to you in spades. The dedicated video cameras -- well they look like video. Unless you want to pony up for the high end cameras, such as the C300.

The largest contributor to the "cinematic feel" is a large sensor. The FS 100 has the same sensor-size as film. 3 years ago, you had to go to a DSLR to get large sensor, shallow DOF video. This is no longer the case. 

There are a bunch of good comparisons out there. Watch the demo videos and get a feel for what might work for you. Who knows, maybe Canon will blow you mind with their new cinema DSLR. Hopefully that will be announced soon.

If you are doing this strictly for video then I wouldn't choose either. Your paying a lot for a bunch of still photo features. I'd put my money into something dedicated to video.

I know. It might get hugged to death by the neighborhood watch.

Interesting article, but I think the devices mentioned above are all considered "professional" from that articles perspective.

I think Sony, is trying to be more competitive in the consumer sweet spot for tech, which exist somewhere <$1000.  To become profitable they are going to have to sell millions of gadgets,  not thousands of pro units.  They also need to do a better job of marketing their software. ACID Pro, SoundForge, and VegasPro are all awesome,  yet under-appreciated programs.

311
If it kills the C300 then it must also kill their own PMW3 which is just getting off the ground, so I doubt it. My guess is that it will be competition for the Canon Cinema-DSLR, and nothing more.

Methinks scarlet is about to get its butt kicked.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5DMarkIII or Panasonic GH2 for video use???
« on: March 27, 2012, 04:46:15 PM »
That first example of the GH2 is quite impressive. If you had told me it was the c300 I would have believed you. Why does the manufacturer lock up this feature, so that a firmware add-on is necessary?
