Canon EOS 300C Spec Rumors

Canon November 3 Announcement

Canon Rumors posted some specs on the Canon Unicorn camera set to be revealed later today.

  • Name: Canon EOS 300C
  • EF and PL Versions
  • Dual CF Card Slots
  • Built in ND
  • Super35 Sensor
  • HDMI and HDSDI out
  • Hot shoe mounted monitor w/ 2 XLR ins
  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • Also is able to record out of SDI

Aside from a couple of tweaks on this spec list, it sounds a lot like Sony’s FS100.  If this were the final spec list, I think Canon will have failed to live up to the “historic” hype. On the plus side, that spec list looks like a $6,000 or so camera.
