    A few here have said th C100Mk2 doesn't shoot 60fps... they're talking out of their asses.
    This camera smokes! Period.

    I love my C100mk2, I wouldn't give it up unless I was getting a C200 or C300mk2. If you shoot solo or very small crew, having dependable AF is life changing. The audio sounds pretty darn good as well, and having both a decent screen and decent EVF that swivels makes life easier when working outside or in. Files look great out of the box so it's great for fast turnaround stuff, and C-Log grades pretty well considering the gimped codec, which actually turns out to be a blessing because a 128gb card lasts all day, and it shoots backup to a second slot. A lot of the time I go out with the camera with 2 x 128gb and 2 x batteries and I can shoot all day without worrying about downloading or data management. I can complain all day about Canon, but the one thing they got right with the C series cameras is that it gets out of the way and lets you get on with shooting.
    That said, I have fairly specific requirements. If you work with a larger crew, or if you're not working on paid jobs, there are probably better options. I shoot Fuji for stills so I have an X-T2 which goes on the gimbal, but a GH5s is certainly an excellent option that I would consider as a gimbal cam if I needed it. If I'm going to be on me feet all day I tend to hire an EasyRig (excellent combo with the C100mk2) but you're not exactly discreet -- so if discretion is required you definitely don't want a C100.

    Depends entirely on the kind of work you do. If it is fast paced, quick turn around, limited/no post, then a C100 can be a good choice. 

    However the C100mk2 sells at a hefty premium over the C100mk1, and what do you really gain? Not much, most notably 1080 60fps. If you don't  need that, then go for a C100mk1 DPAF instead (or even an older C100 without DPAF if you don't need and won't to get a real bargain bargain).

    And is worthwhile checking the "superior" Sony PMW-F3 and Sony FS700 which sell for even cheaper prices. 

    And depending on your line of work you do, is worthwhile keeping an eye out for a C300mk1 or C500, which sell for a massive discount over their original prices.

    C100mkii is my favorite video camera of all time. Easily the best ergonomics of such a camera, better than the C200 in my opinion.
    I could see only 2 possible limitations.
    No slow motion (what a pity not to have 100/120f), and no 4K, which in 2018 can be a factor for some.
    Still the best option for 80% of what I do.

    I bought a C100 mark 1 in 2018  so +1 from me too... but it obviously depends on what your needs are. for a $2K budget it's imo the best cine cam. Not DSLR, not MILC. CINE camera.
    Super35 sensor. 1080p downsampled from 4K. Dual Pixel AF (with face tracking on Mk2). XLR inputs. internal NDs. Internal stereo boom mic. outstanding battery. Canon Log. Canon colors. Native Canon EF lenses. Waveform assist. Great ergonomics. Modularity...etc.

    I’m thinking about buying a Mark I, so yeah I think the Mark II is definitely still relevant. As John Brawley stated in a different thread... a lot of US network television is broadcasted at 720p... so 1080p is more than enough.
    The C100 series cameras are workhorses... I’m sure you’ll have the camera paid off after a job or two and then it’s all profit. And for that money... it’s a no brainer.

    GH5/S is not an option for me, i dont like the image that much, just saw a few "filmic" videos that i really liked. In my eyes its to "Video".
    Bigger (not a red one ? ) is a Plus for me, clients are blindet by big cameras.
    leave the fact that i dont like the Gh5, this package would be almost double the price. But thanks for your reply
    Thats the work i do, if i do something bigger i will rent a RED.
    Plan for this Camera would be, image films, music videos and shortfilms... maybe a doc someday.
    Sorry i should gave you guys the infos earlier

    I tried on my G7 with my VA, and after the bad experience I tried with the same units from a colleague, also changing HDMI cable.
    When recorded on the VA the G7 had a strong noise pattern. Not on the Atomos. But I cannot afford the Atomos, so I'm recording on SD and I'm very happy with the G7 (the only drawback is that you cannot use HDMI for monitoring, you can only record, while with GH4 you can do it). 

    Anyway I'm a big fan of Lumix quality, even if I love the BlackMagic ProRes from Micro Cinema Camera, which I sold for the unpractical (for me) workflow. 

    For the way I work, GH4 (which I sold in order to buy the GH5), G7 etc... are the best way and I love them.

    I think that shooting with @andy lee settings you have the freedom to do pretty much what you want in post.

    I tried to match G7 files with BlackMagic Micro (straight from the card) files in 5 minutes

    I just can imagine what you can do with the new GH5 and a solid V-Log!

    p.s.: Andy, what about GH5's 24p ProRes files playback/preview without transcoding? I tried Luke Neumann's files and I cannot played them in preview. Thank you!

    I´m not looking for the better quality, i just love prores and how smooth it is to edit and i don´t want to add a render step to my post.
    Bad to hear that it is worse with the G7, anyone also noticed something like this?
    Thank you for your info JazzBox

    I sold my 5inch Video Assist after ecording both GH4 and G7 on it.
    The files from GH4 were not really better then internal, the G7's were a lot worst. I tried on a second unity, same results. Not the same thing on an Atomos... so I sold it... (just my personal experience, nothing scientific).

    I would just record 10 bit 1080p60 through the HDMI, because this time around it looks like quality will be exactly the same. The videodslr.pl tests show the exact same rolling shutter for UHD and HD, which suggests the 1080p image is simply an in camera downscale. The resolution to my eyes looks identical in 1080p.

    Another D750 fan here.
    Fabulous stills camera with very capable autofocus and amazing DR. I was musing the other day that it is a better camera than the pro D3s I had a few years ago that was something like 3/4 times the price.
    As a video camera loads to love as well. Clean, attractive image that is easy to work with. 60p looks good. Handling and battery life both excellent. Something else that people seem to rarely comment on is that price wise it is a total bargain.

    Well you could always get a Canon. Some of the cheaper ones even come with the Kendy Ty function button, which I understand is better than 4K and Magic Lantern combined.
