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. The footage captured using Canon EOS C300 cameras was then used by visual effects facilities as a reference to convincingly overlay photorealistic CGI of Iron Man armor and other imagery on to main-camera footage.
