If you have the internet then you already know about Canon’s C300. The camera debuted in Los Angeles back in November where attendees could get their hands on the new Cinema EOS camera. Since then there has been a flood of images and test films popping up to satisfy people’s curiosity. However, it was just this past week that us folks in the North were finally able to try it out for ourselves. Canon Canada’s 3 city launch event took place in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal.
We showed up for the last 2 legs of the trip in Toronto and Montreal along with some Cinevate toys. Finally getting my hands on the camera I can say that everything I’ve read is accurate. The low light/high ISO performance is phenomenal and Canon’s new Cinema Lenses (EF mount) create an image equal to or better than what I’ve seen in the CP.2s. I still look forward to getting some ‘alone time’ with the C300 and doing some shooting and comparing, but until then I feel pretty confident that the camera is the low light king that people are claiming it to be.
Anyone else make it to a C300 event? What were your thoughts?
