Canon C100 Mark II and Original Now Over $1000 Price Reduction

Now is a good time to pick up a Canon C100 Mark II. B&H has announced a $1000 saving on the updated entry-level EOS Cinema Camera. A similar but larger price drop has occurred with the original Canon C100 also where you can now pick it up for just $2,499.

Here are the savings:

Canon EOS C100 Body Only was $3999. Now $2499
Canon EOS C100 Body Only with Dual Pixel AF was $4499. Now $2999
Canon EOS C100 Mark II Body Only (Dual Pixel AF as standard) was $5499. Now $4499

I was naturally intrigued when I first picked this news up from No Film School; Canon usually reduces their cameras when making way for a new addition.

With the quite frankly exhausting speed of Sonys advancements in new affordable camera releases, Canon is falling behind with their camera bodies from a spec list and cost perspective. It’s grown speculation as to whether we’ll see another EOS Cinema Camera appear this year that sits between the C100 and C300 cameras.

Usually a permanent price drop looks less like a sale; I’ve checked other US resellers and they are presenting the price drop in a similar temporary deal-like fashion.

Some consider Canon as a non-contender in the race to the best affordable large sensor camera. Their DSLR division has long abandoned any advancements in video technology for fear of harming the EOS Cinema Cameras, whilst the flagship line itself looks like a little light in terms of specification v cost.

However one thing’s for sure, they are a true workhorse. Whilst under spec’d against competition they work straight out of the box (without a firmware or two to get the image working as to how it should).

It seems that the price drop won’t stick around for too long, so now maybe the time to get a good deal. The same reductions are applying to packages including accessories and lenses, check out the full list here.

Every time I’ve checked the C100 prices (not price points) at B&H for the last few months these have been the prices (not price points). These prices (not price points) have been around awhile.

You’re incorrect – they just dropped the Mark II by 1000 and the other two by 500. I know because I’ve had them in my cart waiting for the prices to fall.

Sony Fs5 has terrible codec hard on computer Blackmagic USA mini no VNDF crazy for such a capable company. The 100 mark II has versatility low light a workhorse dual pixel focus great image and easy workflow. Until 4K is a necessity it is still a great run and gun camera not needing pricey accessories.

100% correct. Could not have said it better. Specs (funnily enough) don’t always give the best impression of a camera, or any device for that matter. God willing this is on my ‘to buy list’
