I used to roast these all the time until I worked on a few different sets and saw just how many people actually use them, especially for livestreams.

What about the C300 mkIII? I thought the rumours had been that it was due to be announced around NAB as well?
Other sites that are more “video-centric” have pretty much shot that down and said there will not be a C300 mkIII at NAB. Of course, we’ll know definitively in about a week or so.

Personally, I couldn’t care less about the little “handycams” and a new 300 is also low on my list of things to care about. What I do want info about, though, are the rumored new primes.

I have an Canon XA11 and I love it. These small camcorders are extremely useful for handheld ENG type work. They are very light and easy to operate handheld by a single operator. The xlr audio inputs make them very versatile. The power zoom is extremely useful. These are all about capturing a moment as it happens rather than going for any type of cinematic effect. I also use mine as a B Cam alongside my Canon 5D Mark IV.

Which sites would you describe as bein more video centric? I've always fiynd this site just as good for photo and video rumours. Which video sites are saying this? Thanks.
