With everything a cinematographer needs, the EOS C300 comes ready to produce. A logical layout of buttons and dials make operation simple. A lock switch turns off all controls except the recording button and function buttons. Small ridges between the buttons help prevent activating functions by mistake. A backlit display panel is great for low-light viewing. A tally lamp is clearly visible from the side or behind the camera.
Compact and Modular Design
The EOS C300 body is surprisingly small (5.24" x 7.0" x 6.7") and easily hand-held at just over 3 lbs. There is a bright 1.55 megapixel electronic viewfinder that comes bundled with a removable combination 4-inch, 1.23 megapixel monitor and control panel. The camera also has a removable hand grip with a control dial and function buttons for hand-held shooting in DSLR style - or remove it and use the supplied thumb rest for completely stripped down shooting. The EOS C300 has a manually-operated built-in Neutral Density glass filter offering 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64th steps of filtering. Hand-held or using a tripod, on location or in the studio, even on 3-D rigs, the EOS C300 fits shooting situations that are challenging for larger cameras.
Ultra High Resolution EVF
The EOS C300 features a 0.52-inch, 1.55 Megapixel Color EVF and approximately 100% field of view coverage for comfortable viewing and accurate judgment of composition, focus and color. The angle of the viewfinder is adjustable for additional user comfort.
there is no place to go for training
There are many reviews of the equipment hardware. This is to tell you that there are almost no resources that clearly and simply explain how to use the canon Log function, How to use LUTs. The video scopes or how to set up custom picture settings. I have used the camera on several projects and have gotten good results. That said, I have searched the web for those resources that would allow me to easily understand what Canon has advertised as these functions which unlock the camera's true potential. I don't buy the idea that this should be a required quest for someone making the move up to a professional camera.
