There are currently a lot of rumors in the grapevine about up-and-coming shooters and lenses for Canon. There’s the Canon 5D Mark III, which is said to come with 7D auto-focus and a 21-megapixel sensor. There’s also talk going around about the impending update for the Canon EOS EF 24-70 F/2.8L II, which will come with external zoom but without an image stabilizer.
The EOS C300 is Canon’s first foray into digital cinema. The C300 will be equipped with Canon’s DIGIC DV III image processor and a 9.84-megapixel CMOS sensor (which is 8.29-megapixel effective) with Super 35 format capabilities. You can shoot at 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 50, and 59.94 fps at ISOs that range from 320 to 20,000.
B&H Photo previously said that the C300 would be on sale “sometime after January 30th” with a $15,999 price tag. The CN-E 14.5-60mm T2.6 L S and CN-E 30-300mm T2.95-3.7 L S zoom lenses that can be used with it are priced at $42,750 and $44,650 respectively.
Now AV Watch has revealed that the 1080p shooter will go on sale in Japan on January 31st. It will be priced at a cool 1.5 million yen, which is approximately $19,000.
