So while a large number of internet enthusiasts make a lot of claims that Canon doesn’t know what they’re doing in the world of cinematography, it appears the people making quality films are pretty impressed with the offerings from Canon. This is some proof that the Cinema EOS concept and implementation have been a winner for Canon and we expect to see some great new gear announced ahead of NAB in April.
