As you all know, I absolutely love the look of the Canon C300 Mark II. But what about the C500?
My daughter auditioned for a role in a Russell Crowe movie a couple years ago, to play the part that went to Kylie Rogers. I'm not surprised they went with Kylie because Kylie was twice the age of the character and looked half her own age. I'm glad my daughter didn't get the part, because the character grows up to be a whore and I wouldn't be able to let her watch her own movie. That was not apparent from the sides. But I digress...The movie was shot on a C500.
Now this was a major motion picture with Russell Crowe and Jane Fonda in it. And they picked a C500.
Now you can buy a C500 much cheaper than a C300 Mark II. I see some for under $5000.
Are there drawbacks to buying that old war horse in 2017? I'm just wondering how it compares to the C300 Mark II.
