Is this a sign of things to come? The 1D C is currently sold for $12,000 in the US, however Canon in Hong Kong have just lowered the list price, according to one Canon rep to “put it in-line with the Sony FS700”. Converted to US dollars the Hong Kong street price now works out at just $7000.
As you may know, Philip Bloom is having another holiday in the US later this year – I mean, tour!
In a continuoation of his hotel timelapse series, Philip will be visiting 12 cities to help people get the best out of DSLRs, which is nice.
All is not well behind the scenes at Panasonic.
The GH2 continues the aggressive approach to video for Panasonic and it’s a great camera. Just how great, I’ll determine shortly. I have the challenger in the house – a Canon 60D (taking a ride in Philip Bloom’s luggage straight from Japan) which is fantastic and now I’m awaiting the GH2, any moment now.
