Yes, the XLRs are on the LCD attachment, the audio inputs into the body are Canon's own connectors, which I guess you could use jump leads for.

I imagine it'll depend on what you want to use the camera for. In the middle of the jungle with limited power available, I suspect the C300 is the one to go for. Also, if you want to shoot at very low light levels.

There's a discussion about both cameras here:

The C300 does come out pretty positivity during the conversation following the experience of using the pre-production cameras.

Usual thing with RED products, the shooting rig price is more than the cost of the brain, so I'd add a few more grand to that figure



I'm hoping you'll be bringing out a professional 2/3" camera, it's a pity about the technical problems with the fixed lens.


I strongly agree with both points.
I look after a Red One MX and had been waiting 2 years to buy the Scarlet that was advertised. Very disappointed that it turned out to be Epic Lite, rather than all you need to shoot for under £10,000.

I know two guys with Red MX's trying to sell for a fraction of what they paid to "get out now' and buy a Scartlet. But nobody wants an older Red because they all want the Scarlet.

One guy I know is ready to declare bankruptcy because his Red One purchase has been such a disaster.

I myself am likely to partner up with three other guys for a fully rigged Scarlet purchase, which we would use on a small feature next Spring (after testing on various shorts and music videos) and also rent out. 15 grand plit up with three or four guys isn't all that insane. ;)
