I tried to like it and “get used” to the ergonomics, but the audio controls, lack of switches for gain and white balance plus the stepping iris controls was driving me nuts. I had hoped the C300 would be that one piece solution I was looking for, but when you consider that you have to add an external box (the viewfinder module) to get Audio controls and XLR in, for me at least it kind of defeats the object. I’m sticking to my F3 with an external recorder, which does not restrict me to 8 bit 50Mb/s. I just love 10 bit S-Log on to the Gemini or Samurai.
The C300 is a great camera, the pictures are very good, but it’s just too much like a DSLR for me, so it had to go.
