The first low-budget large-sensor cinema camera from Canon, the C100 Mark I (which was announced in late 2012), has come down in price substantially to just $2,500 for the body only (thanks to Jeremy for pointing this out). If you want that version with Dual Pixel AutoFocus, it will cost another $500 for a total of $3,000 body only. As far as the newer C100 Mark II, while there is a decent improvement in image quality with the same sensor, most of the improvements are in usability. Better EVF and LCD made it a much nicer camera to use, and now you can get it for just $4,500 with Dual Pixel AF.


It's unclear whether these price drops will be permanent, but it does make sense as the original C300 Mark I has dropped to $7,000. This puts more space between these models, since the C300 was always meant to be in a higher class above the C100. As for future products, it seems like Canon has some daylight between the C300 and the C300 Mark II around the $9,000-$12,000 mark. It would not be surprising if they filled this hole with a new 4K model, or even released a 4K model somewhere even lower, but we'll just have to wait and see. 

For all of these deals, which also include some lens and body packages, head on over to B&H.
