My Gear: C300 & Accessories

Cinema EOS C300 B&H Mfr. Site

VL: I was one of 4 filmmakers to shoot the first test films with this camera.   I would recommend this cameras hands down to any filmmaker – especially TV, Indies and documentary shooters.   The latitude of the exposure, and low light performance are stunning.  This is currently one of the top cameras out there in the market.   This is basically the 5D MKIII all grown up – with all of the professional production features one needs.

Description: The Cinema EOS C300 takes what professionals love about DSLR filmmaking – access to a vast selection of widely available lenses, a large sensor that facilitates a shallow depth of field, and portable operation with a modular, compact camera – and addresses its shortcomings. That means that unlike DSLR cameras, this Cinema EOS camcorder is designed inside and out for professional cinematographers capturing motion pictures that will stand up to rigorous post-production processes.

VL:  This is the cage support designed by RedrockMicro specifically for the Canon C300.  You can read my full review of this system, HERE.

Description (from Redrock Micro): Complete your Canon EOS C300 camera setup with the ultraCage™ | blue 15mm Cinema Bundle from Redrock Micro. Referred to as the "must have accessory for the C300", the ultraCage Cinema Bundle is the ultimate rig for studio-style productions where most of the shots have the C300 camera on tripod, dolly, or steadicam.

backPack B&H Mfr. Site

VL:  We power everything on our cage off of one Anton Bauer battery to save weight using P-Taps and XLR cables.   This is a fantastic way to save time and money by powering all of your devices from one single source – no more carrying 4 types of batteries with you (and multiple ones of each!)  See below for an important accessory.

Description (from Redrock Micro): The backPack accessory for ultraCage™ delivers a convenient and extremely helpful rear plate on which to attach camera-top accessories. The backPack attaches to the ultraCage™ rear chassis to keep accessories clear of camera operation while still providing solid and stable mounting.
