Canon C200 hands-on: 4K 60p, touchscreen AF, Canon Cinema RAW Light – Newsshooter

So Canon has announced the C200, a 4K camera that shoots a form of compressed RAW as well a 8 bit video formats.  The $5000 to $10,000 price point is sure filling up with cameras: Sony FS5 and FS7 variants, Canon’s offerings, The Ursa Mini Pro, and Panasonic’s soon to be announced camera.  Tough to make a choice.  I do agree with Matthew Allard that Canon seems to be a little late to the party with this camera.  I also thought the same thing about the C700: it was essentially a Sony F55 years after theirs had been on the market.  But, competition is good for everyone.  A Canon camera in a C300 form factor with their excellent auto-focus, skin tones and the ability to shoot RAW will definitely find some buyers.

Look for KOAT to have a look at CineGear in two days!
