The leak in the 5Dmk4 video features is just to protect the C100 line more than the C300 or C700.
Also the xc15 is a shame: 18-180mm f2.8-5.6 ... O_O ... You have to shoot in sunshine to use this camera when you zoom!!!
Canon have a strange policy I admit.
I agree that for the body only is a little too overpriced, but some of this "few features" make the difference when shooting with an AC on the side or in a production that involve more than one person.
Also you can point the same confronting Amira vs Ursa Mini.
I think that it can be a very good camera if it will be sold with the evf and the baseplate/shouldermount for the same money.
I think this is a good camera.
Maybe canon is a little bit late on presenting the C700, but the specs are good enough for this camera to find a place in the market.
Even if someone said that the raw is not in the firts release, I remember when Arri lauched the first Alexa with only the prores 4444 FHD recording option.
"Drive" was shot in prores and none have argued that it was not raw....
The price tag is maybe a little bit high, but I don't think that Canon intended this camera as a new C300. But something more like an Arri Amira.
Wiht a shoulder mount the camera seems to be well balanced.
Don't forghet how many production still use the Alexa even if it shoots 2880x1660 raw files and even if it weights a lot compared to red or sony's cameras.
The possibility to have global shutter.
The ND filters
High speed without cropping the sensor (using the xf-avc codec)
The overall tecnical design (on the ursa you can access the menu only by the touchscreen monitor and the buttons are usefull only with the 5" screen open)
The overall estetical design
Yes, you will shot in 70mm film
