I'm very excited about C200s. What do you guys think from the two leaked images?
Official details from Canon are expected very soon, but the big question is : How much will the C200 cost ?
Also, Panasonic is revealing a new affordable cinematic camera this Friday at Cine Gear Expo 2017. ( this is their "bridge" camera that sits between the GH5 and the Varicam LT ) LiveStream on Facebook : https://goo.gl/sbKFsh

I keep hearing different numbers being bounced around. Maybe $8,500? Just waiting on that reveal.
Dang, I'm excited to follow up with that Panasonic release. Thanks for pointing it out!

Overpriced... Canon keeps missing the mark. They arent innovating. I'd Rather buy any freaking Sony camera than pay US$9,000 when i can get 4.6K RAW along with prores out of a Black Magic camera for US$5,000.

Well what else is new... Although it's about the same as the 4.6K blackmagic as far as price, not 9k. Still would take an URSA Mini Pro over it though.

So the C200 pricing starts at $6,000 for a bare-bones camera all the way up to a $8,400 kit with 24-105 f/4.0 lens : https://goo.gl/zYYfBG

I've read people gushing over the touch screen autofocus. My personal GH4 I shoot my kids with did that 2+ yrs ago=) It's new for a mid range "Cinema" camera, but these videos and articles are acting like they've never seen it before in their lives.

what do you guys think of the huge video creators bundle https://5daydeal.com/ref/KnightMedia/?campaign=forum

It's interesting how many people seem to pass judgement on cinema camera based solely on specs and compressed youtube sample images.
By that standard the Black Magic Cinema Camera with 4.6k raw blows away the sorry ARRI Alexa XT at nearly 1/20th of the price.
Canon makes good cameras and it is likely that they release a camera that will perform properly for it's price point and target market. It's 6k usd on launch day meaning that it will shortly be 10-20% less. This will be against the fs5 and not the fs7.

You can't compare C200 to Ursa Mini Pro. C200 is much ligher. I think people forget about the weight & I think it's one of the most important aspects when you shoot. Good luck operating UMP on gimbal, movi etc. Besides lacking ND filters C200 seems like a perfect indie camera. I would buy it over UMP.

It has up to 10 stops of internal ND...

The C200 has 6 stops standard and 10 stops extended of ND. Also it has a very wide iso range...with excellent low light performance...and the dual pixel autofocus is amazing. These features leave the Ursa in the dust in my humble opinion!

I've been trying to wrap my head around this camera--no camera is perfect, but for some reason this has a 4k raw "lite" feature that records 1gb/s, but they can't include a 1080 raw option? I haven't seen it in the spec sheets at least.
the 4k raw is too much data for regular use-- 90 minutes of footage would be over 5 TB. can any of us justify using 5 TB every shoot day? The DIT will be the one we're waiting on even with multiple 500GB CFast cards.
This camera has a lot of potential, that will usually be wasted, but i'd be interested if there was a 1080 raw lite option.

You're a videographer man you should know the difference between a gigabyte and a gigabit.

Have the exact same feeling... 4k is fun yeah, but all TVCs I make are shot in 1080 and delivered in 1080, and no reason to deliver 4k to web...
Sure, some might benefit from it, but no way I wanna be slicing through 4k footage, even with proxies, if I dont need to. Too much hassle.
So... to begin with, if using the C200 I would have to use a crippled codec for 1080? Stupid...
