Canon C300 Mark II suffers black spot issue

Maybe it's already fixed in the secret 4K60 NAB surprise update ;)

Varicam's P2 storage is vastly more expensive than CFast 2.0, and an equivalent Varicam LT is still much more expensive than a stock C300 II. Until other pro cameras get PDAF-level AF, the C300 II is a unique camera. We had budget for an Amira, but went C300 II due to AF and much lower energy costs. Under normal shooting conditions, we've never seen the black-hole sun. While I'm sure canon will fix it, in the rare case it happens before then, it's an easy fix in post (cover with blended white mask and track if needed). A lot easier to fix than messed up colors in skintones...

Any shred of evidence that the camera involved in that shot is an actual c300 mark II. I just did the same thing with mine, and well...I'll let you decide whether there is a black sun phenomena or not.  

 

It seems likely that whoever made the clip has a faulty camera.

Even if it is a widespread problem, facts shoould be checked before it is made it into an article... As it stands, it is just 3rd hand, unverified info.

Whoever did the test was pointing the camera at a car headlight beam at a really short distance at night on a street that isn't badly exposed with the street lights. Without knowing the ISO and the actual light output from the car is really difficult to judge if the issue appears because the camera is Faulty or as Cris Santucci mentions the camera was at a X thousand percent clip and then the issue appears. Note how the artifact appears in the shape of light only on the parts the light is way more strong.

It's set to 3200 ISO and with lens wide open. Maybe he should try a laser next :-p
