Paul McAniff Pro Market Canon NABShow 2015

Always great catching up with Paul McAniff at Canon USA. Being someone who really embraced the DSLR Revolution using them for video Canon DSLRs were the first and the best. I’ve been following all the cool cine products from their lenses, bodies and now their large sensor Video Cameras taking the best of their DSLRs and creating a go to all in one Cinema EOS system. Of course the C series have been a hit for Canon lovers but this year Paul tells us about the two new additions. I myself am a Red Owner/Opp. but I have to say if I didn’t heavily invest in their modular system I’d absolutely look at what they have to offer for my needs. Both cameras he goes over will show you that you can literally pick up the camera and start shooting. You won’t need to invest in many different modules you can get started with either camera and have a legit image maker out of the box. So check out the Canon EOS C300 Mark II or the XC10 cameras for your next film or any other work you do canon has some great options for all..!
