Excellent info on the C300. Odd to say this, but the more I learn about the C300, the more I like it. As much as we've all been conditioned to believe that 4k is pro and anything less is for amateurs, I think that's totally overblown, especially when you think about the concomitant burdensome file sizes and render times. This camera puts out a damn beautiful image. The last 3 Star Wars were 1080p...come on, if that's not good enough, who do we think we are?
If the real street price comes down at least 25%, this might be kind of a magical camera. Built in ND's, CF card recording, 190 minute battery life? Red batteries give you 25 minutes! Their SSD's start at $1,000. When you add up the costs required to assemble a full, working Scarlet with Red's over-priced accessories, the Scarlet's basically the same price, if not more, especially if you need a $4k red rocket and extra storage space, etc...it really doesn't seem very special upon closer scrutiny...especially with the ridiculous cropping required to shoot above 12fps.
