...but it's DSLR not a video camera.
You're right but maybe I missed the part where it's relevancy was discussed in the blog post. I mean, yea, writers/producers can use it. It should allow for long writing sessions without a charger. The screen space should allow for better document editing. It's full sized keyboard is a great benefit for writing in contrast to normal tablet sized keyboards. All great things - none mentioned.
I'm not sure how this plays into filmmaking other than announcing a likely unusable option for an editing device.
But they added WiFi to the camera....they just don't know what it does.
I think the 60p is only available using the MP4 format.
Sort of an out-of-the-blue announcement....
So they gave the C100 the features that everyone was asking for and priced it the same. The old C100 can be had for 4500 (non-AF) now which isn't that bad of a deal. In fact, it might be a better deal than the new C100 since the image coming out of it is the exact same. If you want slo-mo you can have it for $1000.
I think this announcement would have a better reception if they phrased it as:
"C100 price drop. Also added a $1,000 1080P 60FPS option."
I'm really hoping that Canon is able to pull something else out of their hat...but I've been hoping that for the last 4 years.
