What the heck? Canon INCREASES Price of C100
So I was just looking at B&H and noticed the price of the C100 went from around $2,999 to $3,999! I had to double check to make sure I wasn't remembering the price wrong - After all, why would they INCREASE the price as more competition comes out from Sony and Blackmagic? Sure enough, the price has indeed increased by $1000. What is going on?! The prices are reflected at Adorama.com too, so its has to be coming from Canon.
Keep in mind that this increase is for the original C100 WITHOUT the dual pixel upgrade. If you want the upgrade (which you probably do) the cost is $4,499.00 for the original C100 MARK I. ??? Maybe they think this will encourage people looking at the C100 to go ahead with the mark II. All I can say is it makes me more likely to go with the better spec'd, competitively priced Sony cams.
