If there’s such a thing as a rock star of DP’s or Cinematographers, one would consider Alex Buono to be one. Known for his work on Saturday Night Live and a bunch of flicks like Dead End and Green Street Hooligan, Alex has been known to revolutionized the industry by incorporating DSLR movie capture abilities into film and programme productions.
With his preference to use Canon cameras in his work, Canon Malaysia thought it was the perfect opportunity to introduce to the public the new EOS C series ;c300 , c500 and the 4k Canon 1C DSLR with an Alex Buono Cinema EOS workshop !
Many of the participants favored with the ergonomic of the EOS C series, saying that it was comfortable to handle and the buttons and switches were place strategically , making it a well thought of camera
The Canon 1C camera also made its appearance in this event. With a traditional DSLR body shape, this 4k camera allows the DSLR videographers to use their existing rigs or rigs available in the market now.
Alex fed us with a bunch of useful information and tips throughout the workshop but one statement he made that left a lasting impression to me was.. “Canon has made movie making affordable.Big budget movie makers are even using the same cameras a normal consumers have in their production. It use to be technology that separated movie making quality..now its creativity “
