We thought they might, we hoped they might…… and they did. Canon have just announced that their new flagship digital cinema camera, the EOS C300, will launch at a price of $15,999. This is $4000 less than they originally told people, due largely in part to the backlash of the film making community. Only 18 stores will be stoking the C300 and you can bet that there will be a HUGE rush to get these in the early stages. If your company is considering purchasing one then I would urge you to place a pre-order with B&H Photo HERE. You can cancel anytime prior to it’s shipping, which is listed as after January 30th.
If you want to look at more details about the C300 I have written several articles about the camera, including being able to interview one of it’s technical developers:
I will update this list as more stores open their ordering. B&H lists shipping as Jan 30th.
