Canon C300 makes an look in Vincent Laforet’s Mobius, discover the brief and behind the scenes proper right here (video)
A New York Occasions photojournalist turned Hollywood director, Vincent Laforet has develop into synonymous with DSLR video, after his brief movie Reverie helped catapult Canon’s 5D Mark II into the world of digital filmmaking. And after enjoying such a big position in launching that digital camera, we definitely weren’t stunned to see Laforet make an look at at the moment’s Canon Cinema occasion, together with his brief movie Mobius getting a while on the large display. The movie follows a photojournalist who stumbles upon a Cartel execution, however it additionally tells the story of Canon’s tightly-veiled C300 cinema digital camera, which the corporate launched simply moments in the past. Laforet used a pre-manufacturing C300 (word the inexperienced tape button labels) to shoot Mobius within the Mojave Desert beneath quite a lot of harsh circumstances, together with highly effective daylight and close to-darkness, in each extraordinarily scorching and chilly temperatures — the digital camera seems to have carried out extraordinarily nicely, given each the distant capturing setting and tight manufacturing schedule.
Canon has but to disclose the C300’s price ticket, which we anticipate to far undercut the $one hundred twenty,000 Arri Alexa package, however its sheer portability makes it a extra interesting choice for filmmakers — particularly these with restricted time and different assets. Laforet was capable of shoot his movie with a really small crew, because the C300 may be operated by only one photographer. The director used the digital camera mounted on a tripod, tethered to quite a lot of helicopters, sitting on the street and even hand-held, like a camcorder or DSLR. Laforet shot with Canon’s new FK30-300 telephoto cine zoom PL-mount lens, together with quite a lot of EOS mount lenses, and notes that the digital camera’s type issue makes it even simpler to shoot with than a DSLR just like the 5D Mark II. Its value — someplace within the vary of $20,000 — also needs to put it inside attain of not solely Hollywood cinematographers, but in addition tv administrators and even documentary filmmakers and information photojournalists. We cannot see the C300 hit the market till late January 2012, so bounce previous the break for a sneak peak at Mobius to see Canon’s new cinema flagship, together with a somewhat complete behind-the-scenes video.
