Canon C300 HD movie camera 100%Full HD MPEG 2 format

Video is recorded in the Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, in the MPEG 2 format, at an impressive 50Mbps. Seven new lenses made available covering wide angle, telephoto zoom and fixed focal length. The seven new lenses, in both EF and PL mounts, are; 14.5-60mm, 14.5-60mm SP, 30-300mm, 30-300mm SP, 24mm, 50mm and 85mm with SP denoting a PL mount.
Canon also announced a DSLR, with similar specs to the C300, is currently in development. Few details were made available other than the 35mm-equivalent sensor size and 4k HD video format. 

The US price is set at $20,000 for the EOS C300, which will be available in January next year, with the PL version being the same price but arriving two months later. The system is modular, so you can add and remove components as you wish -- industry standard connectors let you hook up cinema gear, which is something you could never do with the 5D Mark II. The small form factor and price tag to match should help Canon gain some ground in Hollywood, but we'll wait for a chance to shoot some footage before drawing any firm conclusions. In the meantime, we'll have to take Laforet at his word -- which you'll find just past the break.
