An exciting new gamma setting included in the Canon EOS C300 is Canon Log, and while not a RAW recording format, it delivers a number of the benefits of RAW recording to cinematographers and colorists looking for the most information to work with in color grading. Canon Log simplifies the production process, ensuring both single and multi-camera shoots produce consistent and predictable results. The Canon EOS C300 records images with Canon Log using the same reliable and tested on-board Canon XF Codec, but with approximately 12 stops of dynamic range, an overall flat image quality, low contrast and subdued sharpness. This allows for more image information to be retained for color correction and visual effects.

Presented by Light Iron CEO Michael Cioni, this event is a great introduction to Canon Log recording and its myriad applications in television, feature films, and web-based projects. Michael will discuss all the latest Canon RAW and log modes in Cinema EOS cameras and explain how different log recording modes can be optimized in various shooting conditions. To illustrate the technical and creative differences between log and graded material, he will show footage he shot with the Canon EOS C300. As a special bonus, there will be a screening of the short film “The Ticket,” (Po Chan, Director; Shane Hurlbut ASC, Director of Photography) with post-production by Light Iron.

This event will help attendees gain a clear understanding of the advantages of log recording, monitoring techniques in production, workflow choices for image manipulation in post, as well as view professional projection results using the DI process.

EOS C300 cameras and Canon Technical Reps will be available during this event.
