Canon EOS C100 Mark II Arriving Soon

Canon recently announced the EOS C100mkII. This updated version of the most popular cinema camera in the world is getting ready to start shipping off of my shelves in less then 3 weeks. Visit our on-line store to pre-order your C100mkII now. While the C100mkII does offer some great new features compared to the original there are still some important considerations when debating between the two cameras. There’s considerable money savings to be had with the original C100 packages. I’ve priced my C100 kits very aggressively, thanks to some fantastic bundle discounts from Canon. These bundles aren’t available with the new model. Take a look at the some of the savings:

The C100 with the 24-105 f/4 L lens has a full value of $6648. Kit discount is $1149, end price is $5499.

C100 triple lens kit with three L-series lenses has a full value of $11,596. Kit discount is $2100, end price is $9499

The C100 Atoms Ninja kit has a full value of $7587. Kit discount is $1788, end price is $5799.

Compare these kits and the savings to the C100mkII and it’s body only price of $5499. These kits, especially the Atoms Ninja bundle, offer huge savings and a tremendous value. It’s always nice to have the newest toy on the shelf. Some of the C100mkII features might make a big difference to some products. 60p can be a critical feature, a larger viewfinder is a nice tool to have. But i strongly suggest weighing all the C100 options before assuming that the newest model is the right fit for you. Post by Eric C. Petrie

Final Days of 0% Financing on Cinema EOS

The ride is finally over. After a very successful run the plug is being pulled on the 0% financing option on Canon Cinema EOS products. These are the final days. The program ends on June 30th but, since we recommend allowing 24 hours to process, you should have your applications turned in no later then Friday June 27th.

What exactly is this financing program? It’s simple, really. We are providing 0% financing over a 24 month period for all products that fall under the Cinema EOS banner. This includes the EOS C100 & C100-DAF kits, the C300, C500, 1Dc, all cine primes, and the cine zoom lenses.

How do you get in on this offer? Fill out the brief credit application, it should take less then 5 minutes. Send it back to us and we’ll have it through the credit process in less then 24 hours. After that simply sign the lease, agreeing to make your payments, and the gear is yours.

We have a very high success rate with credit approvals. You can bundle 3rd party (non Canon) or Canon non-Cinema EOS products onto the lease but that gear will have an interest rate between 5-10%. This is technically a lease, which means at the end of the lease Canon owns the gear again. But they offer whats called a “$1 buy out”. This simply means that they’ll sell all the gear back to you for $1 at the end of the program.

So what are you waiting for? If you’ve been on the fence about a piece of Cinema EOS gear now is the time to act. Contact us now, get the credit application done, ask us about our other special offers for customers who do the financing, and get gear in your hands right away.
