Sort of glad to hear, actually... that at least Canon re-focused their efforts on what this camera is supposed to be: a stills camera.
I mean, it sucks for people who have been getting it to do cheap double duty, but in the end, Canon spent their efforts in making a great camera, even better, by fixing it's shortcomings. (Not I said camera and not video).
I do agree with the author, that Canon seems to have missed the boat with C300. I guess they consider anyone using less than a C3000 to be a mere hobbyist and their hobby-level dslr video cameras should suffice then.
