Canon C100 Price Drop. $4999. Best In Class At That Price

January 2, 20140 Comments

Canon announced some rebates and price drops this week. The C500 has a rebate bringing it to$16,999 from $20K. This rebate ends January 4th.
Most of you are probably more interested in the C100. It’s now $4999. The Sony’s FS700 sells for $7699. That makes it $2700 less! The FS100 is $3999. but lack of built in ND filters is a deal breaker for me. The big advantage to the FS700 is overcranking, so if you really need it then throw down the extra $2700 on the FS700.  This in my eyes makes the C100″ best in value” in it’s class. Check out my review below.

I  like the C100 a lot. Great image and now you can get one at a great price. This isn’t a rebate. This is a price drop. Should you pick one up now? If you need a camera today yes. I think you get a lot of camera for the cost. Now if you’re really short on cash the Panasonic AF-100 is a bargain now. I’ve seen it as low as $2500.
Looking back the C300 is about two years old now. The C100 is still fairly new so I don’t think Canon will discontinue the C100 anytime soon but I have a feeling we could see a new camera that slides in between the C100 and C300. Maybe a better viewfinder and codec. Or an updated processor to give us more 1080 frame rates. It’s all guessing on my part but something is always in the works.
