Live Coverage of the Announcement
« on: November 03, 2011, 04:51:46 PM »

Two Red Dot Cameras?

People are commenting on the red dot on the C300 image below, but it also appears on the EOS DSLR camera in the image. No idea what’s up with that for the moment.


ISO Performance #3

A Sam Nicholson film is showing, and the noise from the previous film isn’t showing in this one.


ISO Performance #2

The 2nd short film they’re showing is noticeably noisier.


Breathtaking ISO Performance

Filmmakers and the audience are commenting about how clean, sharp and beautiful the example short films are. The lowlight performance may be revolutionary.


Canon EOS C300

It looks like 3 new compact primes and 2 zoom lenses. Can be mounted on the new Cinema EOS camera as well as Canon EOS DSLRs. 





 






 


 


14:44 I’m told (@GoForJared) the new camera is called the EOS C 300, and not the previously reported EOS 300C.


Live from Hollywood

Hmmm, so is this isn't a PL mount then? So Canon has made "PL" glass with an EOS mount....and it's a single chip sensor...interesting.

Waiting for MORE info....I hate liveblogs, they take TOO LONG!! xD

Pretty extensive article on DV info.  I don't know how they gleaned so much info without a press release or anything, but there it is. 4k sensor, but only 1080p/30 output onto CF cards at 50Mb/s.
NO AF or AE,  interestingly, so Canon is isolating big time prosumers and wedding videographers who can't do another take if they mess up the focus.

  • So that's where Canon's lens development has been focused (ahem!) lately.
  • This makes me wonder if Canon might actually be willing to develop a MF camera and lens line.

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?

Whoa you're right. Almost looks like some sort of DSLR mix.

I'll take a 5D-C (In response to secondary camera with Red/Purple C on it).  Seriously I want a new camera between 1200 and maybe 6900.  Sorry I don't want a 1dX or a c300.  Give me a 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9D.  Something that your DSLR base might actually think of buying.  Not just niche market products.

At this point a 70D would be a welcome change.

Meh

These people don't have a clue. Once again we are given a consumer form factor. ZacutoRock will be happy -- they will sell a lot of cages, shoulder mount kits, etc.

Take a look at an Alexa or an Aaton 16mm film camera, among others. The view finder needs to up-front by the lens mount. The body shape is wrong, you need to be able to sit the camera on your shoulder, with-out add-ons.

Meh!!!

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.

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?

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.

My mistake; I noticed that as well, but I pretty much took the Dvinfo article and copied the first things I saw.
