    Two different camera systems for two different markets.

    Yes, they are both video cameras and can be used to shoot all day hanging off the face of El Capitan or shoot Captain Marvel, but one is excellent for one purpose, the other is excellent for the other. You don't get one camera that can do both excellently.

    Regarding price, that's just their own luxury business model like any other brand.

    ARRI charges for licenses, RED charges for modules.

    But with the aforementioned you can at least now get a decent set up for $15K rather than $50K+ with ARRI.

    Also... 60P!

    Unless this is a C500 MKII prototype, not the C300 MKIII.

    Oofa, that wouldn't be a smart marketing move by them. But it also wouldn't surprise me either.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Canon 8K demo: where's the detail? While 60p is fine, reminds of Showscan which is cool for nature shots, however this footage is not even True 4K.

    Canon lenses on a different (full frame) 8K sensor (with actual 8K version available to view in addition to True 4K. Here we can see 8K and 4K 60p providing real detail: YouTube compression is not the issue):


    Full frame 6K sensor (True 4K):


    Fool me once...

    Might be better to downsample Canon footage until it's producing Nyquist limit detail for the downsampled resolution, then let AI Upscaling bring up to decent 4K and 8K:

    Need internal recording without the 4 zingbang recorder attachments. Wish Canon gives us indies a chance to shoot with prototypes and see what we can do vis-a-vis their experts.

    Currently the C700 is $28,000 for the regular sensor and $33,000 for the full frame sensor. The C700 originally released just over 2 years ago at $35,000.

    Currently the C300MKII is $9,999, originally released almost 3.5 years ago at $15,999. The original C300 also released at the same price point.

    If Canon continues being Canon and releases their camera a few thousand too high that wouldn't surprise me, but I've got to think pricing pressure from all the other options out there would at least get them to not go over the $15,999 mark for the Super 35 sensor. Maybe $18,999 for the full frame?

    As I'm typing this I'm getting bummed that the C200 is only $7,500.... I might be too used to paying too little for a camera to upgrade, ha.

    ha...you already overpaid if you bought a C200 for $7500.

    But it's okay if it was 2017.

    In 2019, that's a no-no.
