Canon announced the EOS C100 digital video camera this morning, and those resistant to DSLR video are surely rejoicing. This camera takes the large sensor andinterchangeablelens features from DSLRs and puts them in to a package clearly designed for the video professional. In order to save you time, I've put together a list of all the features you care about in the C100 and bolded those not found in traditional DSLRs. Unfortunately, Canon didn't include every frame rates available.

When you ask shooters what they hate most about shooting video on a DSLR, the answer is most frequently the lack of manual audio controls. For current owners of the Canon 7D, audio levels are no longer a problem. The update is available straight from Canon's official site. Additional features include a higher maximum burst rate (25 RAW photos at 8 frames per second), comparability with Canon's GP-E2 GPS Receiver, and added ISO flexibility in auto mode.
I'm a photographer from The Netherlands (sorry for my English) who is making his first steps in making time lapse video's. Because i would like to be able to put different kinds of content together in a creative matter, i would like to invest my time right to learn to work with a good and versatile program as Premiere pro instead of the easy but very limited time lapse applications. At first Premiere pro looked a bit complicated, but after some playing with it this weekend i think this is the right software for my needs.
I am a new user of the Canon XF300, and I have some questions regarding storage and editing of the MXF files. When I store on blu-rays, I loose the link to the XF Utility software, is it possible to re-link later, or is it better to not use Utility at all?
How do you challenge yourself to keep your video producing skills fresh when you have no current project to work on? Whether you make video for a hobby or for a paycheck, you need to keep at it to stay abreast of the trends and technology and to keep your skills honed and fresh. But sometimes, especially in the hot dull summer months, you can get a bit bored and not want to do much more than settle in a nearby hammock sipping a fruity refreshment or libation of choice.
