This just in from Larry Thorpe: an illuminating look at the differences between Canon C500 and C300 — with a PDF download. Perfect July 4th reading.
Larry’s long title is Canon Senior Fellow Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Professional Engineering & Solutions Division. His four-letter title is “guru.”
It’s a fascinating look at why shooting 2K 12-bit (or HD) on the Canon C500 makes sense — with eminently articulate explantations of the science going on behind the look of Edoardo Ponti’s “The Human Voice” and Rodrigo Prieto’s cinematography on this short film, now going on location from Rome to Naples.
