It’s been more than a month since I ordered my Canon EOS C300 and I’ve been assured it will arrive this week. For definite! It seems that it’s been rather a popular choice and supplies have failed to meet the demand for this large format 50MB/s HD camera.
The kit I’ve ordered includes a set of three lenses; an 85mm, a 50mm and a 16-35 zoom. The two primes are nice and fast at F1.8 while the zoom is a respectable F2.8. Pondering now whether I’ll need a longer lens too. Possibly the 70-200mm F2.8 but will reserve judgement on that until I get the kit. I already own a Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 so maybe, with an appropriate adaptor I can use that. Also looking forward to getting a Samurai disk recorder which will record 185MB/s with the Avid DNxHD codec. Perfect for my workflow.
