I believe there are 4 powering options: AA batteries, a Sony type battery, USB or AC adapter.
Canon lowered the price on the C100 Mark ii as well. It's now $4000.
I must confess, I hadn't considered the possibility of down-rezzing to get a 4:4:4 HD video. I do a lot of green screen work, and this would be amazing.
If you downrez in Premiere, will it convert to 444 color automatically? Or is there a specific transformation that needs to be applied?
ADK makes amazing video editing workstations and laptops. Their prices can be a bit high, but their equipment is incredible. Also, their products are made to your requirements, so turnaround can sometimes be a few weeks. http://www.adkvideoediting.com/
And I just assumed that Ex Machina would be nominated for Best Picture.
I was going back-and-forth between between the GH4 and the XC10. I ended up going with the XC10, but returned it a week later.
I really wanted a camera that was built for video, had great ergonomics, could shoot slow motion, and had 422 color without needing an external recorder... The XC10 seemed to tick all these boxes. But working with it was something different. There is a single internal ND filter, and it's not strong enough for shooting outdoors. The headphone jack is IN the hand grip. The lens is a bit of a problem. I thought I'd be OK with a parfocal but varying aperture lens, but the more I used it the more frustrated I became.
In the end I returned it and spent the extra money to get the C100 Mk2. I feel bad for Canon, because if they had improved the lens, added an EVF with a decent eye cup, and fixed a few small design issues, then they'd have an exciting product.
