C300 Amaze Balls!

I am feeling sad that Kodak labs are shutting down everywhere… but when film lover Roger Deakins ASC, BSC is shooting digitally you know times have changed…
Film it seems is literally leaving the building, just as Canon is turning right up to the party with their C300.
It’s one digital party with the Alexa, RED, Epic, Scarlet and now the Canon C300 is out! I’ve just taken delivery!  I thought the Canon 5D MKII was a Game Changer and it was! Anyone who visits DOP Blog will know how many HDSLR shoots I’ve done…

 

 Now the C300 is available to order and just like the 5D MKII it provides Amaze Balls images – only well better…
You can get it with a PL mount or EF if you want to save money and use your existing Canon stills lenses and yes the C300  is SOOO USER FRIENDLY!
Is it weird to be sooo deliriously happy when a camera has built in ND Filters and a Clear Scan function..?
Take a look at the specifications yourself.  As soon as I get the permissions I’ll post up some recent work I have shot on it!

 

Canon C300 AMAZE BALLS!

These 2 new Canon lenses are defo on my wish list!  The CN-E 14.5-60mm T2.6 comes in both PL mount and EF Mount depending on what camera your going to use.  Of course you can use this on the Epic or Scarlet.  It’s a little expensive at $42,750 but still one to dream about…  The CN-E 30-300mm is a beast WHAT a focal length…  That also comes in PL and EF take a look for yourself…

This is what Antony Dod Mantle BSC, DIFF ASC Oscar winning Cinematographer had to say about it…
