This is a stalwart of  the film industry and hugely popular for broadcast with its 50mb/s recording and full frame. It’s native Canon EF mount makes autofocus and other electronic lens communication a breeze without the use of third party adaptors. It is particularly popular for documentary feature films as nowadays a viewers demand a cinematic look. Jerry Ricciotti, Director of Photography for Vice on HBO phrased it particularly well when he was discussing his time in Egypt, “it’s not enough to just go somewhere and just see bullets or tear gas coming at you, people want to see it look pretty.” It’s crazy but true.

The C300 also found a home with most (I’d say all, but don’t want to be too gutsy here) independent filmmakers. As a reference, the 2013 Palm D’Or Winner at Cannes was “Blue is the Warmest Colour” – Shot on C300 and “Blue Ruin” the feature film which won the Cannes Film Festival 2013 FIPRESCI Prize – also C300. #JustSaying
