"Modern action movies are generally packed with computer-generated imagery (CGI), resulting in production budgets that have soared into the stratosphere. But when director Scott Waugh enlisted Shane Hurlbut as Director of Photography on the movie spin-off from the ‘Need For Speed’ game franchise he wanted to buck the trend and shoot the action as close to live as possible, which called for a special camera. CPN writer James Morris spoke to Shane Hurlbut to discover how and why Canon’s EOS C500 Digital Cinema Camera satisfied all the important requirements for shooting live action at 150 miles per hour."
"In April 2014 Canon announced it had reached the historic production landmark of 100 million EF-series interchangeable lenses manufactured since the launch of its iconic EOS SLR System in March 1987. For decades Canon has been a leader in innovative lens technologies, including the Ultrasonic Motor (USM), Image Stabilizer (IS) and a Multi-Layer Diffractive Optical (DO) Element. To help to celebrate the lens landmark CPN spoke to the Canon Ambassadors about their favourite ever EF lens, their favourite image taken with that lens and their recommended lenses for their genres of photography."
