C300 training

The Canon C300 currently the most popular camera in broadcast and unsurprisingly so with its ability to shoot shallow or deep depth of field, and 50mbs 4:2:2 tech specs to ensure it meets current HD broadcast standards, it can utilise Canon’s entire range of EF and L lenses that many people have invested in as well as Canon’s high end Cine Primes and zooms.

Many acomplished DSLR and self shooters are moving to this camera in both broadcast and corporate video.

I cover the following in a one-to-one session

  • An out of the box build and set-up of the C300
  • Full walk through of the menu and its settings
  • Tips, tricks & shortcuts I’ve discovered in two years of shooting with this camera
  • Lenses choices, getting focus & exposure right
  • What other kit you will need to shoot video effectively
  • Audio - how to use the camera’s audio settings and record good audio
  • Practical shooting techniques
  • Workflow

Cost:

£750 for a one to one session
