The drawing above shows what Canon’s rival to the GH5 will look like. It is based on the form factor they introduced with the XC10 but features several ergonomic improvements and an interchangeable lens mount. The lens mount appears to support EF lenses and has a locking mechanism. However there seems to be even more going on with the lens mount than meets the eye.
Various sources have suggested that the C300 Mark II is having difficulties coping with the run-away success of the Sony FS7 on the rental market.
Is it truly being left on the shelves? EOSHD analyses an unexpected situation…
The Canon C300 Mark II appears to have a firmware bug. This will need a fix from Canon if the C300 Mark II is to be completely bullet-proof on a shoot.
Highlights burn to black in certain situations (as with car headlights or the sun).
The Canon C300 Mark II specs are now out and you can see my opinion of the new camera below. As well as the C300 Mark II, Canon also announced the XC10 today, a 4K bridge camera with 12MP 1″ sensor.
One is a winner and one isn’t!
Due to feedback from filmmakers in favour of smaller cameras Arri has introduced the Mini – but the timing is very interesting.
We are just over 1 month away from NAB in early April. The Alexa Mini is still a prototype and it isn’t due to ship until May. Clearly in the long term development process of this camera Arri aimed for NAB 2015 – so why rush out an announcement and a rough looking prototype at BVE in February?
This is the clearest signal yet that new Cinema EOS cameras are coming at NAB and Arri wanted to avoid having their announcement drowned out by a glut of other cameras.
So let’s look ahead just 1 month and predict what the C300 Mark II will look like…And whether a new 4K DSLR is coming from Canon too.
