C100 in 2016?
Lately I've been researching cameras primarily for documentary filmmaking (but which could also accommodate for low-budget commercials).
In accordance with my budget I've limited my options to:
While powerful cameras, I've read a lot about the shortcomings of the A7S and the GH4, but I can only seem to find positive comprehensive reviews of the C100 (minus the EVF and lack of slow-mo). The form factor & ergonomics, built-in ND filters, and XLR inputs are particularly appealing to me.
However, as we enter 2016 I'm a little concerned about the age of the C100. Do you think it's close to the end of "product lifecycle," as some have speculated? Does this matter?
I know these answers are contingent on each individual's line of work and personal preferences, but in my research I've found that you give very informed, conscientious, and insightful answers to tough questions (so what the hell, right?)
