Disagree. Canon explicitly charge Clients for the feature. If in their opinion c-log implementation is not up to sniff And not in line with their standards then they should not offer substandard quality or at least do not charge.
You are free to disagree, but it's not going to change my opinion.

Canon charges a minimal fee that is less than even the cost of a non-invasive "clean and check" to enable C-log in the 5D Mark IV. If you insure your 5D Mark IV for the full MSRP, UPS charges you more to ship it to Canon than Canon charges to do the alteration and ship it back to you.

It's up to the customer to decide if the limited added functionality, though not as extensive as spending several thousands of dollars more to upgrade to a camera in the cinema line, is worth the $100. You get what you pay for. You seem to think it is criminal to not give the full $3K worth of added value to those who only pay $100.

No, I think you are not listening or having a bad day. I have said: it is not typical of Canon to offer a substandard quality at charge.

That's about like saying "If in their opinion the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 is not up to sniff And not in line with the standards they have for the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS, then they should not offer substandard quality or at least do not charge."

One's a $199 (or less when bundled in a kit) lens, the other is a $1,350 lens. But both should be held to the same standard?

Canon positioned this option as Pro feature:


your comparison to a kit lens isn't quite relevant. please notice references to an extensive post production processing and multi camera setup.

anyway, let's leave it right there.

Imagine that! Having to pay more to get more. It's unfair, I tell you, TOTALLY UNFAIR! They should give us EVERYTHING in the cheapest models. Everything!!
Of course not, the conversation wasn't even about that at all, more like buying a sports camera for video purposes...

Sure it is. EOS still cameras with C-log are the entry level cameras into shooting video with C-log output, just like the Rebels and kit lenses are the entry level into the EOS system for stills and H.264 level video.
