The Canon EOS C300 camcorder is capable enough for use in broadcast environments, but if you don't need HD-SDI or Genlock output, consider the C100 Mark II as a much more affordable alternative.

  • +

    Modular design. Supports Canon lens system. Excellent high ISO video quality. Sharp EVF and external monitor. HD-SDI, Time Code, and Genlock output. Dual CF card slots. XLR audio input. Multi-step in-camera neutral density filter.

  • -

    Expensive. Video tops out at 1080p30. Image sensor is not full-frame. AF system struggles in dim light. Lacks onboard shotgun mic. Video quality on par with more affordable cameras.

23 December 2011

The pricing of the new Canon EOS C300 hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s expected to be much less than the RED cameras, and that makes it a perfect choice for beginner cinematographers and companies who want to start a studio or create a TV show using their own equipment and locations.

Wow is all I can say! The C300 has a far superior color and look to it. Easy to operate and I am still learning better ways to use it. Having the sensor capture @ Ultra HD (4k) is great for wonderful 1080P Finals.

29 April 2014

I rill like this product it is one of the best video cam I came to see and I wait to test it soon, I heard about it.

9 December 2015

Excellent. Now I don't have to carry an extra set of filters just for my macro lens

5 January 2014

After year of using and owning soley Canon Products like the the XL1, XL2, XF 300, and now the Canon C300, I love the controls, I like the quality of color, and the features.If you are in business to make money canon has never let me down and always gave me a "High Quality, Professional Images".

21 August 2013

There are many reviews of the equipment hardware. This is to tell you that there are almost no resources that clearly and simply explain how to use the canon Log function, How to use LUTs. The video scopes or how to set up custom picture settings.

4 August 2012

Excellent camera! Incredibly sharp details (due to its 8k sensor), amazing dynamic range all around makes it the best camera I have ever had in my hands. Seeing the results on the large screen just speaks for itself.

26 June 2012

it is the best, i have ever owned. i would recomend it to every one wanting to buy it.
