Canon’s Cinema line of cameras have been a big hit with filmmakers for projects of all budget levels over the past few years. Because of this, we know everyone will be excited to hear that both the Canon C100 and C500 have had their prices reduced over the past week.
The C500 is Canon’s top level cinema camera and was released almost a year and a half ago. At that time, it had a list price of $30,000. Over time there have been a few reductions from Canon and the C500 is currently available on B&H for $16,999.
Canon’s C100 is often referred to as the “baby brother” of the C300 and C500. It was released a year ago with a price tag of $6,700. Thanks to a few price drops, the C100 is now available on B&H for $4,999.
These price drops have made some speculate that Canon is getting ready to announce a new line of cinema cameras this year. What do you think?
