Canon EOS C300, C500, 5 D Mark III and 1D C Comparison for Documentary Production

After attending a recent screening and demo of the latest Canon EOS digital cameras I started thinking about film after one of the hosts mentioned that digital would soon be better than film quality. I also thought about comparing which of these great digital cameras would be best for documentary production. The demo and screening of the new line of Canon EOS digital cameras was held at a local Regal multiplex. Tim Smith of Canon and James Neihouse of Full Sail University spoke, showed a couple great looking films, and fielded questions. I was impressed with what I saw and heard. We also got a chance to actually handle some of the cameras. So after all was said and done I got to thinking which cameras would be the best bang for the buck for documentary work? Is the most expensive gear the best for all situations? These are all high-end digital cameras. Once you hit a certain level is it’s more about the knowledge and experience of the Cinematographer or Photographer then how many mega pixels you have?

The Edge (U2), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) and Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs) jam on an empty stage beginning a dialog that covers more than their music. If you like electric guitar, if you ever played or tried to play guitar or if you just like rock music you will enjoy this documentary. Each of these men has their own unique style and approach but they all share a passion for this instrument and the music they produce with it. What ultimately emerges from the speakers when they perform is each of their unique voices.
