i bought a $16,000 camera..worth it? (C500 Mark II)

The Canon C500 Mark II is my first ever cinema camera and it was a HUGE investment but was it worth it? See for yourself if this camera is really worth 10 times more than your average mirrorless and let me know your thoughts.

  1. I just borrowed a camera from someone I know during quarantine, started my YouTube channel and already up by almost 3K😁 You do not need much to start guys!! Where are my fellow beginner youtubers at?πŸ”₯❀️

  2. Great idea to do this type of video during the pandemic😊 We can’t wait to get travelling again and sharing travel vlogs! Anyone else excited to travel again?

  3. Congratulations on your new beast 😍 all your fans including our channel is hoping to see the awesome output soon on your videos ❀️πŸ’ͺ

  4. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the improvements it makes in your upcoming content. Hope it treats you well! It looks really good so far!

  5. This is awesome, I miss travelling! I started making travel videos last week of places I’d visited pre lockdown and almost on 5,000 views πŸ’ͺ🏾 inspired by you Christian!

  6. I dont see it as my camera, this is my car,its my way of showing people the world,transporting people into different moments in life ~ who knows… i might be saying such words one day πŸ˜…, excellent work my friend.

  7. When millions of people are out of work, this guy is boasting about buying a 16k camera. Do you go to Africa and eat hamburgers in front of starving children too? What an idiot.

  8. Wow this is such a beast of a camera, its amazing 🀣 the footage you took was brilliant but I’d love to hear an update about the practicality of it while travelling, I definitely wouldn’t want to be carrying that on my back 🀣🀣

  9. “Average mirroless”, don’t say that. It is too extreme for you to say cuz you are an average camera user. Mirrorless cams are great for photographer and videography. Photographers rely on them to produce images published in NATGEO, not just youtube man.

  10. Hi Mr.Leblanc how is your year 2020 are you a home boy πŸ˜‚ how is your new ideas. What new plan to travel is going to be 🀩 hugs! Saludos a tu novia ❀

  11. Congrats broπŸ‘, I’ve been watching you since like 400k or 500k subs. You really deserve that camera, from a GoPro to this, that’s just amazing. Just wanna say stay safe when traveling and keep it up man✊🏻

  12. I watched all your instagram stories and oh my gosh that camera is CRAZY! The shot of the eagle literally made me audibly gasp. I can definitely notice it- especially with how close you’re now able to get the birds. It’s beautiful 😍

  13. Make some vlogs in Vancouver as soon as you can. My GF would love to see her home city when she now is stuck in Europe and plus Vancouver and its surroundings are absolutely beautiful.

  14. I understand there must be some room for development, but nobody (yeah, of course some other people will say something else now) wants to see any birds. The people came here for fun and authentic travel videos, not for huge cameras and sponsored content. That you never traveled your country before tells a lot. Please don’t move too far away from your roots.

  15. Surely it will raise questions bro when walking into coffee shops. Last time I was tweaking a portable synth in London’s underground someone reported me for handling a strange deviceπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ btw love your videos man, if you ever need another remote editor hit me up πŸ™‚

  16. Chris, what happened to Lumix??? I thought you were a Panasonic photographer. With that aside, dude you now can shoot for National Geographic. WOW that eagle shot was impressive. The flower with water droplets another one really cool. It seems that you have been upgrade to a class of your own. Very few people on YouTube will be able to keep up with you.
    BTW I would be a porn star if I had the good for it. I was not blessed that way. Some may say that I was cursed but that is a matter of opinion.

  17. You are so smart! Now you must not go in the fitness studio, because this πŸŽ₯ is so heavy that you can trein with that!!! You will save a lot of monyπŸ€“πŸ€”πŸ§πŸ§

  18. I’m from Paris, I just started, all my video are recorded with my iphone but i try to do some good edits, i will buy a GoPro HERO8 in two months, to level up my travel videos, hope i can one day be able to buy an EOS C-line too πŸ™
    Please feel free to let me know what do you think about my videos
    PS: love your works LeBlanc, i followed you way before i started to edit videos, keep ip up, hope you will be able to do some good cinematics videos with your new camera
    (Sorry for my english)

  19. Of course it is a better picture. If it’s worth for you then it was a good investment πŸ™‚
    I think the 1dx is a great camera with a good size. Also newer cameras from lumix or sony are a great option and have such a good image.
    I think it s not that practical for traveling and crusing round the world. I believe that in some years big companys dont think professional cinema cameras are a must for the production they hire filmakers for. Dont talking about coffee shops I mean like the big fish where they send you back at home if you arrive with your sony a7iii or something like that ^^
    Anyways I wish you a lot of fun with your new beast of a camera and I am excited for the next vids =D

  20. Amazing man! You deserve this camera hahah. To play devils advocate…do you worry that hauling this thing around the world will be really difficult? More eyes will be on you, people will think you’re shooting movies so they’ll want permits for you to film, its harder to throw in a backpack on the back of a motorcycle in Bali haha. Im sure you’ve thought of all of these things but that’s just what comes to mind when I think of travelling with a cinema rig β™‘

  21. Have always been impressed with the quality of your videos and photos!!! I guess we’ll find out it there is a noticeable difference and you are comfortable carrying around that boat anchor! Jk πŸ˜€. Across Canada road trip will feature an amazing amount of variety in your content, super excited for you guys!!!

  22. So stoked to be starting a bird watching series with the lost fam! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š

    Dude that thang is sick!!!! That footage is crispy crispy 😳

  23. Wow,that’s one of the best camera ever.worth it because you have one best film in youtube specially all your travel vlog.”cinema graphic”

  24. Yea no lmao. I bet if you take a video with the latest iPhone and compare it with the video of this camera the iPhone will completely destroy it! Cameras are going obsolete

  25. Christian wow u have cam. Long way since I first subscribed back in 2015 when I was heading to the Philippines. U better watch u don’t get robbed amazing camera amazing shots 😁

  26. Congrats on the new camera, i tried signing up for the free 1 hour training, once i enter my name and email it says β€œPage not found”. I tried on multiple browsers. Any ideas why?

  27. Wow that dynamic range is insane. Definately noticed the differrence though can’t imagine thats the most practical camera for vlogging. Also 100% would support a bird watching video

  28. it’s definitely a huge and amazing camera with high-end specs and characteristics. Just my doubt is why, for that money, not going for a pre-owned red camera that raises even more the level and, to my opinion. is more run-n-gun with the right setup?

  29. hey Christian, I was trying to subscribe and sign in to your training but after all the website is loading and there is an error – the website doesn’t exist. I know it exists though! haha I also didn’t get any confirmation email. Should I just hop in and log in at the time the training starts?

  30. Thank you for taking us into this experience, Christian! It felt like you were a kid opening your most awaited christmas present. I felt excited for you while you were unboxing it. πŸ˜‚
    Can’t wait for the travel vlogs that you’ll shoot with that beast. 😍 For now, those birds on your instagram stories will have to suffice. Hahahah. Keep em coming! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸΌ
    Oh, and I appreciate how much you invest on your craft. You inspire me so much everyday! Thank you! πŸ€—

  31. Oh my! The eagle shot and those close ups are absolutely stunning! I’m really impressed. More than ever your videos look like a film πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

  32. I have enjoyed the content on your page for years and I have enjoyed seeing your journey. I bought my GoPro, GH5, and lens all based on your suggestions…..so thank you. I’ve had fun creating some work which can be seen @culinary__adventurer. I’m ready to invest in a better camera and always looking for suggestions, reviews etc….Thanks again, we are ready to see your new camera in use, and safe travels.

  33. Hey LeBLanc I hope you have a insurance on the $16,000 camera.πŸ’ͺβœŒπŸ‘ŠπŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ₯πŸŽ₯πŸ’–

  34. Its all for the dreamy bird spotting! Matti has done amazing things with it and we can’t wait to see what you can do… will be a beast to lug around the world though ha!

  35. Dude that camera is insane!! The colors, sharpness, zoom, everything is just crazy good! Can’t wait to see more content coming from that camera!

  36. So stoked to be starting a bird watching series with the lost fam! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š
