Maine Media Workshops (MMW)—a non-profit educational organization offering year-round workshops for photographers, filmmakers and media artists—has upgraded its film technical department with new Canon XF305 and XF300 professional HD camcorders.
The new Canon cameras are expected to improve the ability of MMW students to create professional-looking videos in all manner of production including documentary pieces, single-camera narrative film production, and multi-camera shoots, MMW says.
The Canon XF305 and XF300 Full HD camcorders are said to be suited for MMW’s educational programs due to their exceptional image quality and rugged reliability, according to the school. The cameras also offer a complete set of professional features including dual XLR inputs for superior audio recording and Canon’s own XF codec featuring a high 50 Mbps bit rate with 4:2:2 color sampling and compatibility with the top non-linear editing systems on the market today, MMW says.
