Canon Cameras Catch the Intense Human Emotions of Catfish
Amid the lies and truths of online relationships lurks Catfish, a reality-based documentary series that unites Internet couples that have never actually met. These pairings usually include a “catfish,” who is not quite the person they claimed to be online, and a disappointed “hopeful.” To capture the moments of revelation when both sides finally meet face-to-face the series uses cameras and camcorders from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. Although a full-size ENG camera is plainly visible when the production team goes knocking on catfish doors, several smaller, more mobile Canon cameras are also present to provide comprehensive, intimate coverage. These cameras – which are also used to document discussions between the participants filmed in parks, cafes, and homes – include three Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Compact Cameras, two Canon XF105 High Definition camcorders, and an Canon XA25 High Definition camcorder.
