Canon Cinema EOS C100 Digital Video Camera Helps TV News Station Promos Stand Out With Cinematic Style
News: Canon Cinema EOS C100 Digital Video Camera Helps TV News Station Promos Stand Out With Cinematic StyleAs a former photojournalist, Director of Photography Erik Naso knew that large-format, single-sensor cameras provide the shallow depth of field he needed to create cinematic-style TV news promos. Because Naso wanted each spot to have a cinematic quality that differed from the station’s regularly aired ENG-style videos, Naso turned to a brand and toolset he was vastly familiar with from his time as a photojournalist, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. To create these promos with true cinematic quality, Naso chose a Canon Cinema EOS C100 digital video camera, which features an Emmy® Award winning technology: Canon’s Super 35mm CMOS Image Sensor. As a longtime user of digital SLR cameras – including Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II – Naso appreciated the ergonomic convenience of the EOS C100 camera, and its ability to use all of the Canon EF-Series photographic lenses he already owns.
