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.

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???

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?

What lenses were used? I would imagine the differences in lenses would be as likely a suspect for perceived differences as anything else.

I found a link to some higher bit-rate mkiii footage over at cinema 5D. Once you click on the link, you can download it with the tab on the right.

4k is nice, but I'd be perfectly happy getting the C300 image quality in a much cheaper camera. If that has to be a DSLR, then fine. I'll buy.

4k, yes. Better DR and low light performance than the c300? Doubtful.

The 5D3 is basically a merging of the 5D2 and 7D cameras and lines.  The 1Dx is now the sports action camera, so the space remains for the "Studio" version of a DSLR with a full-featured video spec, in a 1D-type body...

I agree that the 5d3 can be seen as the merge of the 5D and 7D lines.

But I think that the new cinema DSLR will be more of a video-first, stills-second cam, and therefore not a serious studio portrait option. 

If you have a 1080 clip form the mkiii could you please post it?

Swap a new censor into the 1dx and you get your 4k dslr.  I agree with the previous posters who say it will be 4-6K in price. They want to undercut RED.

Sony is a bigger company, but they are not exactly overflowing with cash for R&D.  There is a reason their stock prices diverge(see below).  It's in large part because Sony is operating at a loss and Canon is not.
