Recently Canon announced the EOS C300 cinema camera. This is a super 35 sensor video camera aimed to compete with the likes of the “red” series camera. The quality, versatility and low light sensitivity of this camera is incredible. You can read all about the specs here if you’re interested.
Thanks to a last minute invite by a friend Mike(Mooky)I had a chanced to mess around with it first hand last night when the Canon rep was in town. Though the C300 was the big draw I must admit it’s well over what I need. I was impressed with the XF100, and hope to get a chance to demo this unit later on.
