Canon launches EOS C100 – a half-price C300 (with half the bit rate)

Canon’s new entry-level member of its large-sensor EOS Cinema camera range will be less than half the price of the acclaimed C300, but unfortunately it isn’t an XF camera, as it records 24Mbps AVCHD to SD cards rather than 50Mbps MXF.

However, it does have a lockable HDMI port with full, 4:2:2 uncompressed output, so anyone with a Ninja 2 or similar external recorder, can get the glorious C300 sensor at a sensible price.

For the full details, have a look at our EOS C100 preview on the UrbanFoxTV blog.
