Thank man for speaking the truth. A camera's specs are just one part of evaluating a product. People's obsession with 4k is misguided as it is one useful tool out of the many other things you should be looking for in a camera. It's like looking for a car and only rating it based on horse power and nothing else. At the end of the day use the camera that works for your work flow and business. I do find it funny that people like Joe Simon, Philip Bloom and other well known filmmakers find this camera to be a great tool to use for telling stories.
Hey man thanks for the reply. I shoot primarily live events and promotional films. At this point in my business I have no immediate need for 4K. Secondly, if your spending between $5000 - $7000 on a camera what's an extra $500-$900?
I honestly, think that people are missing the point. I have filmed with a lot of cameras for a verity of different shoots and it is not all about 4k. Yes 4k is great, but most clients can't even tell the difference. I have been using the c100 for about 9 months and the build, design, and flexibility of it is amazing. The 4k sensor shines although it gets pushed down to AVC HD. The pictures are sharp, crisp, and gradable. What else do you need? Yes there are other cameras that cost less and give you 4k but at what cost? No pro audio inputs, not a great design for filming, additional costs to get the same features which are standard in this camera. Look all I'm saying is know your clients, know what your shooting and make the right choice for you based on what you are creating not based on a features list. I made that mistake when I first looked at the c100 initially and now that I have it I love it. Cheers guys!
