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. 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.

Tuskegee Airmen 75th Anniversary: A Documentary RevisitedTuskegee Airmen 75th Anniversary: A Documentary Revisited
When Denton Adkinson and Bryan Williams told us the story of their documentary, In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen, back in 2011, we were amazed. It was one of the most popular stories we published that year, not just because of the inspiring subject matter, but for the remarkable way it came together as a project, and in post. In the years since then, the film has taken on a life of its own, including national DVD distribution, becoming part of high school curricula, NFL celebrations, museum presentations, and more. Now in 2016, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Tuskegee Airmen, their film will be presented as a live event on over 200 screens across the US. To get there, though, Denton and Bryan had to update their SD original for the big screen, add a surround mix, and prep it for digital distribution. This is a story of faith, fortitude, upres, ProRes, and the power of positive phone calls that you won't want to miss.
