The C300 is very light, much lighter than an Epic, even with a CP2 in front of it. Should be ok for a Body Rig, although it may be uncomfortable for the person wearing it compared to a 5D. Give the footage to a good colourist you can match it with the MX.

The C300 footage is leagues ahead of the Mark III. Shooting in C-log will make it easier to match with Epic footage.

It's about 2lb with the battery, very lightweight and easy to mount for something like a body rig.  There's a wireless WIFI transmitter for the camera that, with Canon EF lenses can give you slow (but usable) follow focus control.  That's a pretty good setup for "super lightweight" because you don't need a baseplate, rods, focus motor, focus receiver, and you can use any of the lightweight canon EF lenses - so your total weight will be about 3 lb of camera package (incl. lens).  The CP.2 are great lenses - but for a body rig probably overkill in terms of weight.

 

As for matching - the C300 has more real-world exposure latitude and better real-world color response than the RED MX, so to match them it's probably easiest to shoot a chart and some skintone on the MX and take those images all the way through your post pipeline giving it the look you want, then matching the Canon to that (as much in camera as possible).  Otherwise, just shoot it in "cine locked" and match in post, it'll be pretty easy and close.

Where is this available and is it expensive? Does it work with the C100 and/or 5D Mark III?

 

Also agreed... the camera has nice colors and good lattitude.

I haven't used this. I have heard that the WFT-E6A works well with the C300 so I am planning to get it.
