Since Vincent Laforet's short film "Reverie" put both Laforet and the Canon 5D Mark II on the map 3 years ago, the filmmaker and camera company have enjoyed a close, symbiotic relationship. So it should come as no surprise that Canon gave Laforet a prototype of their new C300 to shoot his latest short film, "Mobius."
Says Laforet about the experience, "This is in effect a 4K sensor creating a 1080p image. This results in what I would say is easily one of the best digital cinema sensors on the market - at least that I have worked with (I have worked with all of the digital cinema cameras released within the past 2-3 years.) The camera’s only competition right now are the Arri Alexa and Red Epic – although each of the 3 sensors and cameras have distinct advantages over one another - there is no perfect camera.
The Canon C300 produces an INCREDIBLY sharp image at 1080p on a 60 foot screen. There is ZERO aliasing or moire – goodbye forever!!!"
