We received our brand spanking new Canon EOS C100 today so naturally we had to start test driving it. After unboxing it, charging up the battery, spending time familiarizing ourselves with the button layout, we headed out to get some footage. I am so far in love with the image that comes out of this little camera. While I am sure we are still going to be using our 5d Mark III's extensively due to the type of projects we do, I have no doubt that the C100 is going to come in very handy for many of our corporate shoots coming up.
I pushed my color grade in Premiere CS6 a little bit more than I normally do for 5d mark III footage just out curiosity to see how it held up. It did surprisingly well. I don't have a lot of experience with AVCHD footage yet so I'm not sure what I should be expecting there. I shot a few test shots first in C-log, but found that I had to push the image so far that noise crept in. I need to learn more about shooting in C-log mode. The shot of the girl's hand at the desk was C-log. Everything else used the stock "Wide DR" picture profile, which I like so far.
I still have a lot to learn about this camera so I don't want to pass judgement on every aspect of it yet. So far, I think it is great.
