  • Canon's new range of cameras: EOS C100, EOS C300 & EOS C500

    3D_C100_editAdvances in camera technology have come a long way with the advent of digital processing and the internet. Usability is no longer such an issue as it was, and professional cameras are easy to manipulate without detailed knowledge of shutter speeds and apertures. The photographer can concentrate on getting the right lighting level and how best to capture the subject. The speed of getting the photographs to the market place is also much faster given professional cameras and their ability to process information. Of course, you will still need a computer which is able to handle the output and a good quality screen to view the results in the comfort of your home or office.

    There are many reasons to purchase Canon products, not least their enviable reputation for producing versatile, robust, reliable products. Their range of professional cameras includes the new EOS C100, the EOS C300 and the EOS C500. The predecessor to the EOS C300, the EOS C100, is a leader in its field and the new model boasts new features which make it ideal for professional videographers and professionals who do not have the advantage of a back up crew. For cinematographers, the EOS C500 boasts even more features. The EOS C100 camera is compact and economical and is used as a professional camera by many users. The cost is comparable to other similar cameras manufactured by the competition. When selecting a product, it is always wise to make comparisons, and the selection of a professional camera is no different. You should always ensure you compare like for like. There are many features to consider, and much will depend on your level of existing expertise and knowledge.

    In addition to being compact and economical, the EOS C100 camera makes a great photographic partner and produces realistic images every time. The model incorporates a special sensor for capturing videos which was designed for Canon through the company’s ongoing research and development department. The professional camera also provides 3 channel red/green/blue (RGB) for full high digital recording. The hardware specifications offer a wide range of new automatic features. For videographers who are looking at the potential for entering the cinema EOS system for the first time, it is the perfect option.

    The versatility of the EOS C100 is another factor to consider when selecting a professional camera. The ability to interchange lenses at a moments’ notice is essential for videographers as they find themselves in different situations. Simultaneous and relay recording features are also very useful, enabling the videographer to view and review the output. This not only saves time but also provides the opportunity for the user to reshoot more footage is he / she is not satisfied with what he / she has filmed.

    For cinematographers, the EOS C300 was the first digital cinema camera in Canon’s impressive range of professional cameras. At the higher end of the market, the Canon EOS C500 and C500PL 4K and 2K digital cinema cameras offer different valuable features and have the same usability aspects of the EOS C100, as with all Canon products.

    3D_XA25__97691_zoomMost people in The UK will have heard of The Canon Brand. The company began in Japan in the 1930’s by a small group of scientists who wanted to develop camera technology and although the brand came to The UK in the late 1970’s it was as a manufacturer of calculators and copiers rather than cameras. In 1982 the company added an existing but minor camera sales operation to the Canon Uk company that we know today as a market leader in the manufacture and sales of professional cameras and other such equipment.

    Canon separates its business into two core segments; Business Imaging and Consumer imaging. Business Imaging covers areas such as printers, photocopiers, fax machines and document management, while Consumer Imaging is concerned with cameras, camcorders, binoculars, calculators and other such equipment. In addition their Broadcast Division supplies lenses and accessories to the Television Industry.

They developed the XA25, XA20 and Legria G30 to compliment their XA10 camcorder and all the new models benefit from canons technical and design expertise. The three new camcorders have a completely new digital imaging system which will provide outstanding quality and usability and new levels of imaging performance. The XA25 and XA20 also have professional audio and and wifi connectivity in an easy to handle portable format while the Legria G30 has a package optimised for purchasers such as film students or videographers. The powerful specification of these professional cameras and a wide range of advanced shooting features and connectivity options makes them ideal for amateur and professional use and suitable for filming everything from Weddings to News and Documentaries.

    The AX10 still offers a fantastic choice for anyone interested in professional HD video in a highly portable format. The fast wide angle Canon video lens gives professional image quality and the infrared recording option allows full HD resolution for night time or low light situation filming. The AX10 is still and extremely versatile and adaptable camera system for use in a variety of situations and the double memory card feature allows continuous filming.

    Canon has firmly established itself as a global world leader in the manufacture and supply of equipment such as professional cameras and camcorders, printers and copiers to name but a few. With their strong heritage, excellent design and technology skills and their corporate philosophy of “Kyosei” (living and working together for the common good), Canon offers high quality products combined with high levels of customer service and after sales care. Their commitment to continuously developing new products to compliment their existing ranges means that Canon products are an excellent choice for consumers, whether they want to simply capture precious family moments or film for more professional purposes.
