August was all about education discounts, September sees Canon fixing their eye firmly on video pros, offering new deals on their EOS C100, C300 and C500.
Free battery, power adaptor and wireless transmitter with the C300
If you pick up a Canon C300 between 1st September and 31st December 2013, Canon will kindly supply you with a BP-955 battery and CA-930 power adaptor/charger, so you can stay powered up on the go. They’re also throwing in the WFT-E6B wireless transmitter, which allows you to transfer images straight from your camera to a computer via WiFi or Bluetooth, so your DIT, editor or studio team can get hold of your footage as soon as humanly possible (or you can just ping it over to a display so that everyone can review a shot as soon as it’s captured). You’ll also be able to control some of the C300’s settings wirelessly, including the ISO, focus, aperture and ND filter. Best of all, you’ll be saving a whopping £621 on accessories. Can’t argue with that.
Free battery and power adaptor with the C100
Anyone who converts to the Canon C100 between 1st September and 31st December 2013 will find themselves the lucky recipient of £280 of free kit, in the form of a BP-975 high capacity battery and CA-930 power adaptor. More importantly, you’ll have a C100, which is one of our top recommendations for anyone who’s moving up from a DSLR to a dedicated camcorder. We’d encourage you to put that extra £280 towards an Atomos Ninja-2 so that you can bypass internal compression and make the most of that extra information the C100 sensor is capable of capturing.
Get 0% finance on the C500
Finally, anyone who’s been thinking of investing in a Canon C500 needs to get off their laurels before 31st December, as you’ll qualify for interest free credit from Canon. We’re big fans of the C500 as a camera to kick off your 4K workflow, as its four HD feeds can be combined to allow you to capture 4K RAW footage and pull stills from that to use as you would a photograph, so it’s a great choice for ad agencies and anyone doing multimedia work.
And remember, any Canon camera you buy makes you eligible to enter Canon’s amazing Rush-inspired competition, in which you could win a day’s racing at Brands Hatch for four, tickets for Formula One races, or a baseball cap with Daniel Brühl’s face on it.
