Continuos C100 Auto Focus Test - It Works !

Shot at a trade show in Japan, here is a look at the C100 doing autofocus with a Canon 50 1.2L and  28-300 f3.5-5.6L. Any skilled DP or 1st AC would of put this down because AF in the past in video cameras has just plain sucked on a good day. This sample shows otherwise, as in it just nails every move correctly. Ok, one minor point, I hope that focus box can be moved as it can be in the current C100 firmware otherwise is there going to be a lot of center of frame bull's eye shooting. Then again there probably will be anyway since too many will be lazy in not moving it.... we'll see. Looks like this might be a worthwhile $500 upgrade if you have a couple of AF lenses around. Me ? I'm down to one right now but that might change with this development.
