Let's face it, the Canon C300 kicked ass for awhile, but it's slowly fading off into the sunset. I am a huge fan of Canon… Sony, Arri, RED, Panasonic, Vision Research, Black Magic, you name it so don't get it mixed up, this is not a biased discussion.
Having an affinity with all cameras, it's my humble opinion that each one has their place and application. People have different tastes, styles, needs, budgets and it's all relative. It's nice to see so much competition for once, even though it may be getting a little ridiculous. That being said, some cameras definitely perform better than others thanks to their design internally/externally and the consideration their creators have for the DOP's in the preliminary stage of a camera's production.
Okay, so back to the C300… That camera was going out like hot cakes! But it was destined to meet a competitor that would blow it out of the water. Why, might you ask? Because of it's flaws.
