Fellow Austrian HDSLR shooters Nino Leitner, Alexander Boboschewski and their friend Mario Feil got the chance to test the yet unreleased Canon EOS C300 camera. They teamed up to get dirty with it and created an entire short film in two days time (see result above).
Nino says they will publish the source files soon. So if you want to play with a little C300 footage and test it for yourselves stay tuned.
From Nino Leitners blog:
The Canon C300 has much to love, and very little not to like. Its biggest downside is clearly the lack of 10bit output, but I can count on one hand the times that I have really needed that.
Canon fulfilled most of my wishes here:
– small form factor, light
– no aliasing or moiré
– increased light sensitivity
– EF lenses on a proper camcorder, without the need of expensive adapters
– 4:2:2 50MBit codec
– proper batteries (they last FOREVER, we got almost 5 hours out of one of the big ones
I have already decided that this will be my future camera … it fits most of the jobs that I do and it ticks more boxes on my list than any other camera before.
