On his web site, Reconquista Director of Photography Ben Enke breaks down the use of a Canon C300 on a low-budget shoot. As he notes in his introduction, low-budget productions often put most or all of their money into equipment rentals. Reconquista was certainly no different.
While the C300 is hardly a low-budget camera, it is one of the places we decided to splurge because of some of the low-lighting interior scenes and our desire stylistically to not use hot Hollywood lights. Ben talks about this challenge and the use of the Canon C300.
