Alfonso Parra AEC Camera Tests Canon EOS C300

Canon EOS C300. Cinematographic evaluation (2013)
By Alfonso Parra AEC
In this article we are going to show the study about the Canon EOS C300 camera. According to the manufacturer, the camera is designed to digital film making, in other words, story-telling in motion over digital hardware. The introduction of the camera was highly celebrated last year in Los Angeles, and Cameraman covered the event. In the article we published at that time we described the main features of the camera, so, we are not going to speak about them again. A lot of aspects of the EOS C300 regarding menus agree with the ones of the XF305 camera. We have already made an extensive test about this latter one, therefore we refer to it for those who might need deeper details of certain contents.

Epic. Photographic observations (2012)
By Alfonso Parra AEC

 

In the current study we are going to evaluate some photographic aspects of the Epic camera. Since the camera uses the same sensor as the RedOneMX it was not our intention to elaborate a comprehensive test as we have done on other occasions. Therefore, we have focused on those aspects that may differ in a major way. For example among them, on the resolution, since the (Epic) camera can reach to record at 5K format, or on the HDR system (high dynamic range), which enlarges the camera dynamic range until 18 stops. So, we were curious about what these differences
consist in. For that, we have contrasted results with the two cameras, on the one hand from the most theoretic views of our charts and, on the other hand from the recorded images in outdoor and indoor locations, along with the fiction short shooting Los huecos del tiempo.
