Canon made their big announcement of their new camera, the C300, back in November. Like most camera nerds, I was online all day watching what features it had and what it's competitor (the RED scarlet) had to offer.

Canon has set the release date for the C300 for January 30th. It is available on pre-order right now from B&H. The price right now is $15,999 for just the body - which means that it will most likely rival the Sony PMW-F3 which costs $13,960.

B&H released an in depth hands on review on the C300 and can be seen here. It does get pretty technical but it also shows some of the great new features of the C300, especially it's low light filming and 12 stops of dynamic range.

As much as I would love to get the C300 - it is definitely not in my price range. I hope that just like the Sony F3 has a little brother (the FS100) Canon will come out with a large chip camera that is closer towards the price range of $4,000 - $6,000. Instead of that they might just come out with the replacement to the 5D mk II.

What ever happens, it seems like Canon has secured their foot in the cinema world for a bit longer with their C300 and their line of DSLRs.

Here is another video I saw showing off the features of the C300. This one is a bit more comical but still shows the great features the C300 has in low lighting conditions and how it will help independent filmmakers.
