A super video camera? I don't care... But it will probably be out before the 1Dx...

makes sense. nobody needs 4K in the consumer space. The 5DmkIII isn't even able to resolve true 1080p much less will canon do an affordable 4K body. 4K is all for high end productions that are eating up REDs like there is no tomorrow.

Well, it's not the news i hoped to see when i came to Canon Rumors today. It's nice they're making a camera for that niche though.

I'm still looking for a large sensor video camera around $7-8k, and i hope to buy by the end of the year. So far, the Sony FS-700 looks like exactly what i'd want, specs wise, but i was hoping Canon would step in there with a similar offering.

Everyone is saying "4k, 4k!" but i'm not even worried about that right now. I'd be all over that C-300, maybe a C-100 if it was priced around $8k, but i guess i'm hoping for too much!

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.

I think maybe CR should stick to consumer-to-semi-pro-level rumors, because it seems like people don't get that this would be a whole different level of camera.  Post after post comparing this rumor to the FS700 - haha

In other news, Nissan Europe may develop a new Formula One car, priced at $800K... and the verdict from the CR crowd is that it is way overpriced compared to the upcoming Scion FR-S, and Nissan should just improve the Altima first.    ???

yeah but they don't leave features out of the passenger car to protect their F1 sales  ;D ;)

Maybe you should read this: http://www.eoshd.com/content/7767/canon-c300-versus-arri-alexa-on-game-of-thrones  Here's a quote from that posting: "The big story here is just how mind-blowingly good mass produced low cost technology is getting."

and then later down he keeps going on about how digital the C300 looks and how even a few DSLR looked more organic at times and kept praising the Alexa like mad in 90% of his responses in the comments

I'm assuming by "comments", you mean Hurlbut's blog, not the EOSHD comments.

I'll sell my kidney and other non vital body parts to get a 4K camera that can film at least at 120fps.
Hahaha!! I'm there with you! I'll even throw one ear!! as far as we are talking about a camera under $15k
