Canon C300 User Review Uploading Today

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

I hate HD footage for uploading with a passion…twice over the space of 10 hours I have tried to update my Canon C300 HD video and it “encountered a problem”. I am uploading an SD version which I will embed meantime.

This is a part frame from the video of my wife at 15dBs with available light using a Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.4 T* lens.

BVE Day Two

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment

This is not only an iconic building but sadly the last time you will see BVE presented from here as the London planners have given permission to demolish it for prime housing stock.

Here is the new £1400 EcoFlood RL576 from RotoLight this gives off 1000 watts of light but only uses 38 watts due to the high efficiency LED panel. This light can give you accurate lighting using “Magic Eye” technology to accurately measure colour temperature and through Wi-Fi transmits colour settings from your iPhone/iPad to the light itself.

H Preston Media 

This is a new “Tilta” DSLR/cinematic camcorder rig from H Preston Media and is being adapted to work with the Canon C300, the price will be around £2000 which includes the sexy carbon fibre matte box.

Its standard practice to include the master of Sony Vegas editing Zulqar Cheema who this year is in a Sherlock Holmes pose.

This is the new Manfrotto 502 tripod head and legs, once again utilising the Bridge Technology and the new red vari friction panning section. The list price is £429 plus vat, street price will be cheaper.

Finally one of the most influential men in the broadcast retail side of our business Mr Phil Baxter the MD of CVP. Phil and I go back a long way when I bought my very 1st NLE called Digisuite which used Speed Razor to cut on the timeline. It was around the year 1999 and cost a mere £12,000.

So there you have it that was BVE 2012 a very busy show and some major wheeling and dealing going on, the Canon C300 was the Super 35mm camera of the show and talking of such I have some cracking footage from various Canon lenses from the 8mm fisheye to the 400mm super telephoto lens for my C300 review.

So any big news…new cameras…one, the JVC HMQ10, the pictures coming out of this wee camera are quite stunning.

A lot of interest at the ARRI stand with the Alexa taking pole position.

 

No one was wasting any time there was lots of lenses to view on Canons candy store, I have some footage from various Canon EF lenses on my Canon C300.

Sony were showing off their F65 which looks the business and was well attended by DPs looking for an alternative to the Alexa.

Robb Tarrent from Panasonic showing off an HPX250 P2 camcorder, one of the newer cameras that is growing in popularity amongst P2 fans.

So thats it, nothing to set the heather alight, speaking of I did see a new £1400 LED light from RotoLight the EcoFlood RL576 which I will feature tomorrow evening.

Rather disappointing results from my RODE subminiature lapel microphones

Categories: Miscellaneous 6 Comments

As we were setting up yesterday to film my Canon C300 review with the Canon XF100 I had problems with my RODE subminiature microphones.

I plugged the first lapel mic into my XLR cable only to get a buzzing noise…mains hum. Since this was the first time using the Canon XF100 I sat down to go over the audio settings in the menu, after exhausting all my options in the menu I changed the XLR cable, no joy.

Finally in desperation I changed over to my second RODE lapel mic…same old mains hum. My third option was to test another make of mic so I connected my Sennheiser lapel mic and…noise gone !

I am rather disappointed in the RODE mics as I had put a lot of faith in them, I have since emailed RODE …as yet no reply. If anyone else has had similar problems please get in touch. (hdwarrior@me.com)

Canon C300 User Review…Coming Soon !

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

Very interesting…so far I have found a couple of niggles with the Canon C300 but on the whole its the best Super 35mm camcorder to date.

Picture quality is stunning, 4:2:2 and 50MB/s is a major bonus, no 1920 50p but I film in my favourite 720 50p with both the C300 and the XF100.

The review is being filmed with the XF100 and so far I am very pleased with the quality of the picture this wee camcorder produces. I will be filming specific interviews at BVE with the review in mind and thanks to Canon UK I will be able to show you a range of Canon EF lenses from the show.
