A couple of unreleased Canon cameras have appeared for certification. The two cameras are called the ML-100 and the ML-105. They have the code names ID0148 (ML-100) and ID0149 (ML-105). The “ID” is the codename for a Canon video camera, the Cinema EOS C70 is ID0147 internally at Canon.
What are these cameras? They could be something new or new versions of the ME20F-SH and ME200S-SH, very niche and expensive cameras.
Pansonic just released their “box video camera” with the DC-BGH1 and perhaps these are to compete with the DC-BGH1. The new Panasonic retails for $1,999 USD.
The Canon ME20F-SH retails for $19,999 and the ME200S-SH retails for $4,999, so they are definitely playing in a different price bracket.
