A couple Canon EOS Cinema cameras received further discounts with some relatively reasonable prices now. The original Canon EOS C100 is now available for $2,299 (was $3,999), while the C100 with the Dual Pixel AF update is $2499 (was $4,499). The C100 Mark II with the EF-S 18-135mm IS STM lens is $3,699 (reg. $5,699). Finally, the C300 Mark II is available for $9,999 (reg. $15,999) – perhaps in response to the recently announced Panasonic AU-EVA1, which ships later this year. I’m not sure if these are permanent price drops or if they are only for a short while. If you’ve been on the hunt for a cinema camera though, these are are the most attractive deals Canon has offered thus far.
The Canon EOS C200 is the latest cinema camera in the Cinema EOS System. It is a balancing act between the entry-level C100 Mark II and the broadcast and cinema standard C300 Mark II. With a starting price of $5999 for the stripped-down C200B (body only) model, the C200 becomes the cheapest 4K cinema camera option in Canon’s line. [Read more…]
Product photos of the upcoming Canon Cinema EOS C200 have leaked out ahead of its official announcement. The model name suggests this will slot in between the entry-level C100 Mark II and the more advanced C300 Mark II, the latter of which now offers 4K capture in this latest generation. [Read more…]
Alongside the Cinema Kit for the ME20F-SH camera, Canon also unveiled a new Compact-Servo 18-80mm cinema lens. It is compatible with EF-mount Super 35 and APS-C cameras and features a T4.4 constant aperture throughout the entire focal range.
The lens also works with Canon Cinema EOS cameras that use Dual Pixel AF for reliable autofocus and offers a number of camera controls on the lens body and servo unit, including push auto iris, record start and stop, as well as remote lens control with industry-standard controllers.
The Canon Compact-Servo 18-80mm lens and ZSG-C10 accessory grip are scheduled to be available later in 2016 for an estimated retail price of $5,500 and $499 respectively. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
If you saw an earlier post on this, it was a little premature, but now the Canon 1D C can be legitimately purchased in the US for $7,999, which is down $4000 from its previous retail price of $11,999.
The camera launched for $13,000 in 2012 and briefly dipped below $10k early last year as part of a promo deal. At $7,999, the 1D C is one of the most affordable, pro 4K cameras – matching the price of the Sony FS7 full-fledged cinema camera.
You can find the Canon 1D C at its new “affordable” price here at B&H Photo.
