Canon EOS C300 Cinema Cameras Deliver Super-Heroic Image Quality and Precision Performance for Complex Marvel’s Iron Man 3 Visual Effects Sequences
The latest achievement in motion picture visual effects, Marvel’s "Iron Man 3" thrilled audiences with astonishing visuals, many of which were created by superimposing computer graphic imagery (CGI) on to live-action stunt footage. Challenged by the precise matching those visual elements required, the "Iron Man 3" effects team relied on the outstanding image quality and mobility of EOS C300 Cinema cameras from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. Featuring Emmy® Award winning Canon Super 35mm CMOS image sensor technology for full 1920 x 1080 HD capture, and a highly mobile camera body weighing just over 3 lbs., six Canon EOS C300 camera’s served as “witness cameras” for accurate close-up tracking of stunt actors’ movements.

Litepanels Takes on the Wilds of Colorado for Horror Flick
News: Litepanels Takes on the Wilds of Colorado for Horror FlickFor writer/producer/director Robert Palmer, the idea behind "I Am Alone," starring Gareth David Lloyd, began as a simple horror film video diary, but as the story developed, Palmer and partner Michael A. Weiss realized that the concept behind this project would allow them to push the boundaries of both reality TV and horror films. A mention in “Entertainment Weekly” discussing their Kickstarter campaign gave them a boost, a promotion party in Montrose, Colorado gave them visibility – and they raised the modest budget they required. Going in, however, they knew their package had to be minimal, not only because of budget but also due to the hard to get to locations in the wilds of Colorado. That’s where Litepanels Sola 4 and Inca 6 LEDs came in.
