Most of us would already be fully content with the video capability of the lesser priced EOS cameras from Canon. Heck, some of us would even be happy with one of their point-and-shoots. Not all of us have the need to record cinema quality videos, but those who are aspiring movie-makers should take a look at the EOS C300 and C300 PL models from Canon.
These interchangeable-lens digital video camcorders from Canon unite outstanding imaging performance with mobility and expandability in order to meet the standards of today’s motion picture industry. The EOS C300 is equipped with an EF lens mount so that it can be used with Canon’s array of interchangeable lenses for EOS SLR cameras and the EF Cinema lens line-up. On the other hand, the C300 PL sports a PL lens mount to work with industry-standard PL lenses. Both models feature a super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor, a revolutionary Canon DIGIC DV III image processor, a 50 Mbps 4:2:2 codec, and a plethora of other features and controls that allow cinema quality movie capture.
Independent film producers or students of film school looking to get serious with their craft certainly need the right tools for the job. However, when we say that these cameras from Canon are very expensive, we mean very, very expensive. Both of them have a street price of about USD $16,000, or approximately Php 672,000 (so just think of it like you’re buying a new car).
