My friend and Canon Explorer of Light Tyler Stableford tagged Cinematographer Russell Carpenter (IMDB if you don’t know him and I’m shocked if you don’t… are you the only one not to see “Titanic”?) to shoot the launch movie for the Canon EOS C700.
They (Canon) also put together a bunch of behind-the-scenes videos to show you not only more about what they did with the camera but also what they saw and learned when they were using it.
Of course, it is a Canon piece so there’s some bias in their comments, but I believe you’ll enjoy seeing what they did and why as well as the how.
My question to you is what do you think? Does the Canon EOS C700 live up to the hype? Does it match up well with RED or Alexa video? Let me know down in the comments!
Stay tuned tomorrow as we’ll have our own Bret Hoy give you his thoughts and feelings!
