C300 in professional use...
« on: April 14, 2012, 03:45:06 AM »
A couple of URLs with stories from pros...

... this one is interesting because there are quite a few comments and discussion about how to dial down the detail of the C300 with how it renders skin. They don't want to capture and broadcast all of those pimples, etc.

In this case, it is a story of the C300 being used to shoot a promo. In case you were thinking that the C300 was expensive, do an inventory of all of their other expenses - especially post. The C300 cost will be a once off that will be amortized over many different shoots whilst other costs (gennie rental, gas, post, etc) will be re-occurring.
