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.

One thought on “NEW Firmware for the Canon C300 Mk11

  1. Just made the update today and downloaded the C-Log 3 LUTS—did some shooting in C-log 3 and some grading with the LUTS–and the image quality and colors are FANTASTIC!!! WOW. Best images I’ve ever been able to pull out of a camera.
