Playing With Fire


Gosh, I sure had a blast shooting with the new Canon Cinema EOS C300 last week. The camera arrived just before Christmas Eve and while I had an evening to test it under "Exterior - Night" conditions, I never saw the first lick of flame 'til the proverbial "Take One". That said, I’m very pleased with the my brief fling with this landmark Canon camera and I hope you enjoy viewing this little passion play as much as we enjoyed creating it...

Well, I recently returned from an exciting expedition with a great team of overland adventurers and am happy to report that I remain unbroken and very much alive, much to my surprise.

Another post about our friend Sébastien... Sébastien was recently in Paris for the 2011 Salon de la Photo where he taught on stage at the Canon booth.  Under Sébastien's careful supervision, three teams - comprised of audience members - produced a finished video in 1 hour - with three different cuts. All teams got to shoot with the iDC SYSTEM ZERO. 

Sébastien says "It has been a real success. Complete madness!!! All the public wants to buy the SYSTEM ZERO." Thanks Sébastien!

Sébastien Devaud: The 64th Film Festival at Cannes


Our good friend Sébastien Devaud recently attended the 64th Film Festival in Cannes where he shot corporate video for the partners of the festival. Sébastien's iDC SYSTEM ONE kit came in extremely handy when he was given seven solid hours to test drive the Canon's new PL CineZoom. Sébastien made the most of those seven hours by producing the following videos:
