Canon 4K Cinema EOS-1D C Digital SLR Camera and L-Series Lenses Enable the Simultaneous Creation of a TV Commercial During a Fashion Photography Shoot
News: Canon 4K Cinema EOS-1D C Digital SLR Camera and L-Series Lenses Enable the Simultaneous Creation of a TV Commercial During a Fashion Photography ShootThe deadline and budget were tight. The client – a leading maker of iconic, affordable jeans – wanted stills and a beautifully photographed film-style location-shoot commercial turned around in one day. Christopher Laughter, a director at the Los Angeles-based creative content production company Snackhaus, knew that the session, depicting a young woman’s quiet contemplations in a rustic cabin, would require a camera capable of providing superb still and motion-image quality, as well as minimal downtime between setups. This meant there would have to be minimal lighting adjustments, versatility, and mobility from take-to-take in order to make the deadline. “Thrilling our clients and exceeding their expectations is something we constantly strive for,” said Laughter. “These days that seems to get harder and harder as budgets get smaller and smaller. Any time we can find ways to increase our creative capabilities and deliver great results for our clients, we’re quick to act.”

We will discuss the look I want for the story and then the DP and I will choose the camera.” A specialist in directing commercials and documentaries, Ogens revealed that his latest projects have relied on the features and attributes of the Cinema EOS C300 digital cameras, EOS 5D Mark III cameras and EOS 7D Digital SLR cameras from Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions.

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.

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.

News: Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera and Canon Cinema Prime and Zoom Lenses Provide the Performance Needed by First-Time Independent Moviemaker Zephyr BensonThe movie’s budget was ultra-low, the shooting schedule just 21 days, and the “studio” mostly the mean streets and cramped tenements of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Add a first-time director/screenwriter who is also portraying the film’s main character, and it was clear that making "Straight Outta Tompkins" presented multiple challenges. Nevertheless, director Zephyr Benson and DP Brandon Roots shot the film by combining diligent effort, expert collaborators, and the image quality, high mobility, and superb low-light performance of an EOS C300 cinema camera (and cinema prime and zoom lenses) from Canon, U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. A gritty, cautionary tale of a young drug dealer, "Straight Outta Tompkins" is 21-year-old Benson’s debut feature and yet another example of the ongoing democratization in filmmaking made possible by affordable, high-performance digital cameras such as the EOS C300.
