Well I have had the C300 for a while now and haven’t posted anything from it until now. I’m saving the good stuff for our South West Light Exhibition in November.
Recently my daughter Madi was asked to model some dresses for an old friend who is starting up a business hiring vintage gowns which she has been collecting for years. My brother Christian was asked to take the photographs for her catalogue and website.
I thought it might be a good opportunity to shoot some low light video with the C300 to test it out and it ended up becoming a fun little edit. I set the camera up to shoot 3200 ISO and went to work.
Most of the footage is handheld which is quite obvious but I also used my Philip Bloom pocket dolly for a few tracking shots. The timelapse sequence was shot on my old 5Dmk2 (now relegated to Timelapses only).
The camera is a dream to use and am so happy I decided to move over to a proper video camera again.
Hope you enjoy!

Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime?
Instructors: Michael Reichmann, Art Wolfe and Christian Fletcher
The Kimberley, also known as ‘Paradise on Earth,’ is located in beautiful Western Australia, and was one of the earliest settled parts of Australia. Where the sky meets the land, the desert meets the sea, where white sands, red rocks and cobalt blue waters come together, here rests the town of Broome from where your journey will begin.
As with all PODAS adventures you’ll quite literally “hit the ground (and water) running.” Each participant will be shooting this adventure with a state-of-art 60 megapixel Phase One IQ160 camera system. Your images will be rich with more detail and color than you ever thought possible.

So looking forward to this workshop. If you were ever going to go on True North then this is the cruise for you. It will be just for photography with some awesome instructors.

I like this one. The model was shot in front of a dark grey backdrop and the scene I dropped her into was from the ruins at Port Aurthur in Tasmania.

My Burtynsky-esk image of the pine forests at Nannup. Will it make it too the South West Light cut?
