This camera is not going to be the succes the c300 mark 1 was, not even close. There are way more options in the marketplace now at much better price points. For 16k I would much rather have 3 Ursa Minis and shoot 120 in true 35mm frame.
It's obvious Canon doesn't know how to tackle frame rates. And frankly I'm tired of canon still lenses being used on cine cameras, if they don't make an affordable Cine style lens they will loose that market too. Sony is Killing them at every corner and the fact that Sony is teaming up with Zeiss is the final nail in the canon coffin. Mark my words, these changes are real. And the recent decline in canon dslr sales is an obvious fact that canons days of domination are over.
Putting auto focus on a 16k camera is like getting a Ferrari in automatic. Cropping a 35mm sensor to get more frame rates is a crime and 16k is a stupid price for this camera.
And I don't know what people are thinking that the c300 is great in low light, it sucks past 1250 ISO - I know cause I own one. Again Sony is killing them in ISO with the a7 series fs7.
I bet the new iPhone will be better than this canon c300 mark 2.
Lets be totally honest here, the new c300 mark 2 looks OK, its not amazing in any way. I have owned a c300 for two years and I like for Documentary / TV work but for commercial, cinema & fashion work it just comes up FLAT to me. I was considering the c300 mark 2 as a potential upgrade but after seeing this there is NO way I would buy this camera. For nearly the same price I could get TWO new BM Ursa's & ONE BM Ursa mini for the same price!!!! Sorry Canon but BlackMagic just slaughtered your hopes of holding it down. On the flip side Im going to upgrade my Dragon to a Weapon and call it a day - end of story.
Also - message to CANON....Next time you release a new camera DONT SLASH PRICE of the old one a week before NAB. You TOTALLY KILLED the resale value of the C300 TO HALF which really seemed like a BIG F#CK YOU to all of your existing owners.
