We had a visitor today. Canon! Robert, my boss, just happens to be friends with Mark Karwisch, the Southeastern Broadcast Account Manager at Canon U.S.A. He made the trip down to our office and brought with him a few toys for us to look over. Let’s see here… the XA10, XF105, XF305, 5D Mark III, and the C300. The C300 is the one we’ve been waiting for and I hadn’t had a chance to go hands-on with one yet.
We’ve been looking for something that is a little easier on the workflow than the current HDSLR’s we’ve been shooting with. Ever since this camera was announced, it’s been gaining more and more of my interest, especially with all the positive reviews that have come down the pipe. I’m tired of syncing audio, i’m tired of the tiny LCD screen, and i’m tired of the limited record time. I’m not going to go into details as to the pro’s and con’s of this camera, all I can say is that this exactly what I need to solve the issues that I’m tired of dealing with. Time will tell if we end up getting one or justifying the cost of ownership vs just renting. But I definitely appreciate Mark taking the time to come out and show us the latest goodies that Canon is offering.
