With its shallow depth of field and progressive look, the Canon EOS C-300 is perfectly equipped to deliver glossy, feature film-style footage without needing a feature film-sized budget. Little wonder it's taken the TV industry by storm.

But actually getting that look – and the practicalities of filming with the camera, particularly observational action ... well, that’s less straightforward.

So, we’ve developed a new Shooting and Directing course to help you overcome those challenges, and teach experienced camera ops how to get the best out of the C300, from the technical set up to choosing the best lenses, from the workflow to filming uncontrollable action.

By the end of the 2 days, you’ll be confident to start filming on one of the most exciting and in-demand new cameras of recent years.
