You’ve heard me talk about using the Canon C300 as a great choice for shooting a documentary film. Now see why the C300 is a great choice from a post stand point. I show you examples of the same scene, similar shots but three different cameras rolling. See not only why color correcting the C300 footage is much easier but using some scope tools, why the information captured by the C300 will make your editor and colorist much happier to work with your footage.

This is not a very in depth tutorial on how to color correct or grade footage but more of a comparison video to show the difference between the two cameras from a post and editing view point.

If you missed the video on using the Canon C300 for a documentary film, you can view that here:

After 3 years I finally had some time to sift through years of footage and pick out some favorite shoots to compile for a reel. Even after finalizing the edit I thought of even more footage I could have added but maybe I’l save it for next year! This was a hard process! I also realized how little editing I’ve done the past year because I’ve been shooting so much, way out of practice!

Cameras used were Canon 5D MkII, 7D, PL modified 7D, Red Epic, Sony F3 and even some GoPro shots. Lenses were all sizes but some Canon L primes, Zeiss Super Speeds and Compact Primes, Sony primes and I even think a Tokina made it in there.

Music is by M83, track is called “Reunion” Buy it here on iTunes:

Big thanks to the Dave Ramsey team, Michael Costanza, Tyler Bradley and everyone at AC Inc Nashville, the Athentikos team and everyone who helped out with these shoots.

Here I talk about how to build your own PDAC (Portable Digital Acquisition Center). For anyone needing to aquire or dump digital footage in the field, this is one solution that has served me well.
