Dual Pixel CMOS AF Upgrade Now Available For The C300

Screen Shot 2014-05-22 at 11.36.42 AMIf you’ve been waiting to upgrade your EF mount C300 the wait is over. Canon has announced they are now ready. I was wondering if the upgrade would be the same cost as the C100 and it is at $500

From Canon.

Canon USA will perform this feature upgrade at a cost of $500, and will require that EOS C300 cameras be sent to an accredited Canon service center. Shipping and handling charges also may apply. This Feature upgrade is only available only for the EF mount EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera.

Available now from Canon will be an accredited Canon service center installed feature upgrade for the EOS C300 Digital Video Camera that will offer an autofocus mode to help ensure sharp focus and smooth focus transitions. The upgrade provides a new Continuous AF (Autofocus) Function for all Canon EF autofocus Lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. A new AF Lock setting also lets you change the image framing while holding the desired focus. These critical focusing capabilities are designed to help reduce out of focus video while providing for smooth focus transitions and assist users when operating with small crews. The accredited Canon service center installed feature upgrade for the EOS C300 camera is targeted at users who regularly shoot with smaller crews, who shoot moving subjects, or who want smoother, more natural-looking autofocus. Specific markets include documentary filmmakers, electronic news gathering, sports productions, weddings and similar special events, nature and wildlife, and many others.


This example really shows just how good the upgrade is. It really made me want to box my C100 up and send it in!

I still haven’t upgraded my C100 yet. and getting our C300 into Canon will be even harder. These cameras are constantly working! So. Are you interested in getting the upgrade?
