Back in April Canon announced an October release for the upcoming C300 firmware. This morning Canon expanded upon that, adding more features, but delaying the release into November.

In addition to Push Auto Iris, One-shot AF, and Controllable Magnified Focus Assist Canon is adding Peripheral Lens correction, ISO up to 80,000, Record Button Lock, increased Wi-Fi features, more custom button settings, Wide DR Gamma, and exposure options tied into Push Auto Iris.

I’m curious to try the Wide DR Gamma – it may be a good alternative to log when the production doesn’t allow for grading. I’d be surprised if the 80,000 ISO is usable. I mainly want the ability to control the location of the magnified focus point (as soon as possible!)
