The Canon C300 achieves a balance between image quality, ergonomics and practicality. It's a popular camera for documentary, corporate and broadcast work where that large sensor look is desired.
The low light performance of the C300 is renowned and a huge help when shooting documentary style work where creative lighting design isn't an option.
