Canon EOS C300 launch: Interview with Larry Thorpe

By dpreview staff on Nov 4, 2011 at 04:49 GMT

Dpreview was at the Hollywood launch of the new Canon EOS C300, the first in Canon's new 'C' system interchangeable lens video cameras. During a packed evening we made some time to sit down with Larry Thorpe of Canon U.S.A. and asked him about the new camera, and what it means for videographers.

The last two C300 news stories would seem less like dpvertisements if DP actually posted news from other manufacturers with smiliar produts on a regular basis.

How come there's no news stories about problems at Olympus? I'm mean here we have an issue that could very well kill Olympus camera division and not a peep from DP?

we have covered the Olympus story (http://www.dpreview.com/news/1110/11101815olyceostory.asp) and we have covered similar product from RED today. All our news coverage looks like advertising if you consider 'reporting the launch of a new product' to be advertising. Visiting here and complaining about this is like turning on ESPN and shouting that's it's all just advertising for sports.

Thanks DPR

It's a nice cam, but not a that price!

Good move from RED to wait 2 hours after Canon and not spend money over an Hollywood launch....good strategy...

But will Red's be used as much as this Canon unit. I believe that Canon are putting in a new lab and support centre in Hollywood. That's going to be a BIG reason why this new Cam will be successful

RED owns a whole studio complex in Hollywood which contain both support and manufacturing facilities.

And, yes RED cameras have been in use on movies in Hollywood for more than 3 years now. Everything from advertising, Indies to the biggest budget blockbusters. Both Peter Jackson and Ridley Scott is shooting movies with RED Epic's right now among others.

Looks like a great machine for ethused videographers! Red's 4k camera at a much lower cost may be a better bet, though...
I wonder what Sony will bring to the table to face those two!

This seems like an awful amount of attention showered on a niche product. However, if the result is more independent films and documentaries I'll be happy. Anyone else completely disgusted by Hollywood special effects, action shoot-em' ups, and the same pretty faces recycled in one bad film after another?
