DP Alex Buono Talks C300 At SF SuperMeet

SNL Veteran, Talks About Using the C300 For Network Television…

Recently I attended the 11th annual San Francisco Supermeet. Beyond some great lectures by some great speakers, there were a variety of different hardware manufacturers and software companies to show off their latest innovations to a very engaged crowd.

The main event for me was Canon, who had the C300 on hand. It was awesome to finally lay hands on this little wonder that’s got the entire HDSLR world in a frenzy at the moment. That, however, wasn’t the extent of it. The SuperMeet played host to DP Alex Buono who is also one of Canon’s Explorers of Light and who has been the director of photography for NBC’s Saturday Night Live Film Unit for the past twelve years. He is also the first DP to utilize the C300 for network television on two shorts that aired recently on SNL.

Buono took some time out of his busy schedule to speak to me about the C300, the Redrock Micro’s ultraCage | blue, and how HDSLR shooters should perceive the EOS C300.

FTC Disclosure: I have no material ties to Canon USA, Redrock Micro or Saturday Night Live.
