DVD title

Finally after almost 3 years in the making we have a finished DVD on type one diabetes. This DVD has gone through many stages to get here but the final 50m video is a testimony to the Canon C300.


Initially I postponed the shoot till I had the C300 as its cinematic qualities were at that time..second to none.


The Canon C300 is the prime interview camera with a lovely shallow depth of field and no grain.


I used many lenses during the shoot but some of my favourite shots were with the Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 USM Macro lens.


The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG HSM, Canon fit was used for the majority of interviews.


There are 2 DVDs one about the clinical side of diabetes and one called Mini Features, covering various topics from Holidays to Ramadan. The dual DVD costs £15 plus £3 post and packing within the UK. If you know anyone who would like a copy you can email me at

I am in the process of designing a new word press site to sell our educational DVDs on diabetes.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. outstanding, hands down one of the best content video out there! Bravo.
    it rolls smoothly, not too fast and not too slow, simply perfect and very effective.
    I hope you don’t mind me asking a question about the sound on the interviews: I don’t see lavs so it most be a shotgun but what’s unique is the presence: is the gun placed from below? It doesn’t sound like on a boom. when I do interviews and I can process in post I have to add some reverb or similar to give a more rounded effect, but your sound is perfect.
