    Honestly it's the only thing that actually annoys me about the camera at this point.
    That is indeed very annoying and should be changed.

    It's how other [older] prosumer fixed-lens cameras behave as well, but this shouldn't be the case for a 2017 $7,500 cinema camera.

    Look at how many of the new BMPC 4k have failed even in reviewers hands.
    Some are even suggesting that you buy 2 so that you have a backup.
    I've been lucky with my BM cameras but I'm only going to keep one that has a global shutter.
    Now that cameras like the C200 are delivering the kind of features that BM did, I'll take the autofocus and reliability of a C200 any day.
    puredrifting is the only one who I can recall has reported C200 issues and look at what he puts them through.
    How many BM cameras would he have gone through in the same environment?
    Canon has few and far between updates, but I'd take a Cannon now over a BM.
    And Arri, the gold standard, well they're the gold standard.
    No comment on RED.
    I work with some people who used to work for RED.
    I'll stay mum.
    Yep, agree on all of your points. And yes, the C200 getting covered with ocean spray is probably considered "extreme".
    FWIW, since the last round of repairs a few months ago, no problems or issues since then. Overall, I think I got a unit with a bad fan, they replaced it, now all is good.
    The screen going dead was due to excess moisture getting into it.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.

    Almost three years after puredrifting's original post, Canon has finally addressed at least two of these issues with firmware 1.0.7.1.00:

    1. Compatible with EF Cinema Lens CN 10 x 25 IAS S/E1.
    - Peripheral illumination / chromatic aberration correction has been added.
    - Enable autofocus with Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
    - Added support for "Dual Pixel Focus Guide" feature.
    2. The ability to update the SDI/HDMI output from 59.94P to 29.97P (or 23.98P) has been added.
    3. Simultaneous output of HDMI connector and 3G-SDI connector is supported.
    4. Kelvin has been added to the color temperature step setting.

    Right, I was pretty happy to see that. That reminds me, need to download it and try that out.
    I wish they had fixed all of the other problems on our list but the C200 probably won't be a current
    model once the rumored RF models hit so I'd say this might be it as far as FW updates for the C200?

    Very possible but I’m glad we got even this much.

    That is the sentence of 2020. In a way, we have finally a whole bunch of good cameras that meet very basic and good levels of quality. I am for the first time, happy with every camera release this year, and yet, it is odd that this year has seen the most complaints. Or is it just my perspective?

    I thought you were the things could always be improved, dont let the camera companies know we're satisfied guy?

    What have people been complaining about other than Canon's massive overheating problem? The c300iii/c500ii/fx9 were all pretty well received. People dinged Komodo for charging extra for early colored versions. People complained about A7SIII color science until they didnt. 12k was too much until it wasnt.

    "Simultaneous output of HDMI connector and 3G-SDI connector is supported."

    This is a very welcome update!

    I was surprised to see new firmware already. It doesn't seem to add much:

    Firmware Version 1.0.8.1.00 incorporates the following fix.

    1. Fixes a phenomenon that may result in images not being displayed when a LM-V2 monitor is connected to the camera.
    And apparently this feature, which I don't full understand:
