We have a brand new camera here and it’s going to help us take things to a new level. Now I’m the first to say that a camera does not make an artists anymore than a chisel makes you Michelangelo. But quality gear does help an experienced crew work that better and produce more.
We picked up the Canon C100 Cinema Camera along with a new Sennheiser wireless system for sound. We had loaned the C100 for a week and did some testing with it making the reel you see above. We simply fell for it. I love good detail and control and compared to the DLSR video we were producing this was at a new level.
The C100 beats digital SLR video not only in the simple things like ergonomics, menu features and bigger things like focus control, but it blows it away in terms of fine image quality. This camera offers us cinema grade footage and in turn we can offer that to our clients for projects. We’re taking it to the next level here at Opera Chicken and we hope you’ll follow along.
