Due to the imminent announcement of a new 4K C300 prices in the US have dropped dramatically to $6,499 (£4,380), considering this camera cost £12,500 just over 3 years ago, £8,000 is a massive loss to anyone thinking of upgrading to the new version.
Strangely UK pricing is still around the £8,000 mark but this strange page appeared at the CVP web site declaring the the C300 was discontinued and was being superseded by a C300 with Digital Auto Focus ! Though the picture is in fact a C100.
I got just over £6,000 when I sold my C300 this time last year so I can’t complain but the second hand value this year will be a lot less, you will be lucky to sell a C300 for £3,000 after NAB 2015.
If you are planning to jump ship you are always advised to sell long before April to give yourself the best possible chance of a good return on your money.
Will Canon take some hard to get sales from Sony’s FS7…that will depend on price, specifications and codec.
