Pricewatch Deals / Re: Save $1000 on the Canon EOS C100

Actually, there is a lot the BMD cam DOESN'T have for $4k. ND filters, XLR/Phantom power, removable batteries, and many other things that should just be part of a video camera. The BMD cam requires a lot of accessories to be ready to shoot. I commend Canon for actually making nice cameras still – many of the other manufactures have lost focus on what makes a useable camera.


Canon has promised this via firmware update in Spring for the MKIII.

It will come, just not soon.


I got my kit today and it's such a great value. I am glad I went this way.

Well, I think for right now he's mostly just going to be doing family photos and such for himself and his family. They probably saw he has a 'big' camera and everyone started tell him/her that he/she is now voted to be the family photographer.

It's a great way to get started to see if you enjoy it and if you want to do anything more with it.

When you are just starting, what you really need to focus on is just learning the mechanics of photography (eg. Aperture, shutter speed, iso, and how to balance all of them) and the art (composition, contrast, rhythm, line etc.) to achieve your vision and adjust to circumstances. Then you can start add lenses and lights. It would be a good idea to pick up a nifty50 right away. It will be a great bang for buck on portraits and will teach you more about composition and the mechanics because it is a 'fast' lens and pretty sharp given the right circumstances.

Other items would be a decent tripod, shutter release, lens cloth, a few SD cards and eventually blower for keeping the sensor dust free when you swap lenses.

Most of all, I would offer your services for free or really cheap until you really start to get a hang of how it all flows. It will be a great learning opportunity and they will be more forgiving.

Well, I am in on one. I have shot quite a lot with the MKII and I love it.


This may be my deal. I have been hovering over these cams for awhile and I just can't justify the $1k extra for the MKIII
