How the Canon EOS C300 trumped the Scarlet on one shoot

by planetmitch3 Comments

Jonathan Yi sent us this little bit about how they were planning on using the Scarlet's HDR mode for a piece of this commercial, but due to the low light on the day of the shoot, they tried the Canon EOS C300 with an iPhone to light the product with great results.

Here is a real world example of the Canon C300 really saving our asses on a commercial shoot.

  1. Loved it, but I should have ended the commercial differently. Just my opinion.
    What the c300 did, blew me away from my seat, another great reason why i’m saving money for that toy.

    thx for posting it


  2. Imagine how much better the commercial would have been had you had even a small lighting package. The interior shots of the talent were muddy. Bragging that you used an iphone to illuminate the final shot…seriously? Are you a snapshot taker or a filmmaker?
