The C300 was quite a pleasure to shoot with. It happened quickly that the controls felt familiar, so I wasn't fumbling to make on-the-second creative decisions. There was obviously a lot of input in the design of this camera. It shows that Canon was listening by how customizable it is, both inside and out. I really like that I was able to change the side grip to an angle that felt natural to my body. It was important for us to be able to set a custom file name, and we were easily able to. It now has timecode and shot metadata. Canon has taken the best qualities of their DSLR lines and their Camcorder lines and made something that is quickly familiar, comfortable to use, and creates great images right out of the box. I was able to get it through post-production with drivers I already had installed on my computer. Overall, I'm very excited about this new camera, and I look forward to using it a lot more in the near future.
This was all shot handheld with the Canon EF 24-70mm. I am eager to try an IS lens next time.
I pushed this through FCP7, Color & Compressor. Canon provides plug-ins for FCP and Avid, the ingestion is quick.
