Canon to Showcase New Cinema EOS System at DocuDay LA

By KJ Relth

IDA is excited to announce that Canon will be on hand in the lobby of the WGA Theater in Los Angeles this Saturday, February 25 at our annual DocuDay event.

Canon representatives will be on site to showcase their newest development, the Canon Cinema EOS System. This new camera system, "built from the ground up for the serious filmmaker [...] is inspired by and created for the industry." To completely understand everyone filmmaker's wants and needs, Canon has consulted hundreds of people in the business to create this innovative new system, which they are proud to showcase for you at DocuDay LA.

From Canon's website:

Leveraging decades of Canon experience delivering imaging technology and services, Cinema EOS is more than the sum of its parts—camera body, lenses, service and support; it's a definitive HD motion picture system, conceived as an extension of the cinematographer. And this is just the beginning. Expect many more announcements in the months to come—all part of Canon's commitment to provide professionals with the tools and support they need to tell their stories.

It is worth noting that Oscar-nominated films The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom and Hell and Back Again were both shot on Canon DSLRs. If you can make it to the screenings of each of these films (at 9am and 4:15pm, respectively), the filmmakers will be talking about their experiences working with Canon products out in the field.

Come pick up your tickets and passes early and spend some time with this stunning new technology. We promise you'll have bragging rights among all your filmmaker friends!
