Canon Cinema EOS


Today Canon made some headlines announcing Canon Cinema EOS with a new Digital Cinema Camera (The EOS C300), and a new Digital SLR Camera (under development) that is capable of shooting 4K video.

The exciting part from iDC: We will have SYSTEM ONE available for both these cameras when they hit the market. iDC SYSTEM ONE is a modular and versatile Camera Support System designed for filmmakers who understand the value of a well designed tripod-based camera system.

PDN PhotoPlus 2011

Copyright-2010- Dorn

We're in New York City this week for the 2011 PhotoPlus Expo, and this year is sure to be very exciting. Besides the premier of the fabulous new Canon 1D X full-frame Pro camera, the big news is that PDN and WPPI have teamed up to offer an East Coast version of the always popular WPPI convention. Should be a great show!
On Friday, October 28th, I'll be presenting, "The Moving Portrait: Up to the Minute Information on HD Filmmaking Tools & Techniques" at the Javits Center. The show runs from 8:45am to 11:45am. Catch me if you can...

And, since you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by the always popular Canon booth. I'll be demonstrating various cool Speedlite techniques each day from the 27th through the 28th. My schedule will be prominently posted in the speedlite area of the Canon Booth.

iDC will also have an exhibitor's booth in the Main PPE Hall. Come by and check out our lovely gadgets in Booth #337. The lovely and talented Maura will be there too...

Canon Live Learning: Environmental Portraiture with Canon Speedlites


Although this CLL Speedlite Workshop was held much earlier in the summer, the timing of this video’s release is perfect. Thanks to my friends at Canon USA, this week will find me “on assignment” to create a ten-part series of instructional videos on this very same subject; Environmental Portraiture with Canon Speedlites.
