Canon C300

The Canon C300 digital video camera has been announced. This is not a replacement for the typical home camera. This is a pretty cool and very compact $20,000 camera.

Here’s a video talking about the Canon C300 vs the Red Scarlet X. I’m not going to just duplicate his content, you can see it here. Going by specs, he likes the Red better. Real tests are better than specs though, so I’ll be waiting.

I’ll also post videos of the Red once those start showing up.

Jim Buchanan

While I was out looking at possible adapters for Minolta lenses to Canon EOS bodies, I ran across Jim Buchanan. His adapters seem very popular. I haven’t used them, but I found a several positive mentions of his work on forums.

Here is Jim Buchanan’s site. I’ll let you know if I end up using him.

Another video converting Minolta Lenses to work on Canon Cameras

I found this video showing the conversion of Minolta lenses to work on Canon EOS cameras. Here he is converting a Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50 1.4.

I previously posted a video by the same person on converting a PF 58:
