Modern filmmakers need high-quality, adaptable and responsive kit, and that’s exactly what they get from the Canon EOS C700 FF. As Canon’s top-of-the-line cinema camera, its full-frame sensor offers unrivalled image quality and a set of features that make it easy to shoot in almost any lighting conditions. That’s what award-winning cinematographer Tania Freimuth discovered on her introduction to the camera – and Canon’s Sumire Prime lenses – when shooting the short film, A Change Of Heart.
Tania’s a filmmaker who likes to work with available light as much as possible, something she was inspired to do by the celebrated cinematographer, Néstor Almendros, who shot Kramer vs. Kramer, Days of Heaven and Sophie’s Choice, among others in a glittering career. “This doesn’t mean I won’t light a location,” she explains, “but the natural order is my guide, so I look for ways of controlling what’s available, either through reflectors or my choice of camera position, and only when necessary do I augment what’s in situ.” For Tania, this means visiting a location by day and night to understand where the light falls, its position in relation to the movement of the sun and where, if needs be, she will supplement the available light.
