Canon Live Learning Workshops
Canon Live Learning (CLL) will be hosting two workshops at the Canon Hollywood Professional Technology and Support Center for those who would like to learn more about the Cinema EOS Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus feature upgrade and high ISO shooting.

Canon Technical Advisor Brent Ramsey and Cinema EOS Pro Market Representatives will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate the Dual Pixel CMOS AF upgrade and showcase the capabilities of high ISO shooting when capturing images in near dark situations. Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology was originally introduced in the EOS 70D DSLR, and now, Cinema EOS users will have the opportunity to take advantage of this new technology in both the EOS C100 and EOS C300 Cinema Cameras, which significantly improves focus acquisition performance. Developed with the single-operator in mind, Dual Pixel CMOS AF delivers a smooth, continuous autofocus without excessive searching or blurring, greatly enhancing the quality of "live" focus transitions.

The workshop schedule is as follows:

Friday, June 6th
12:00pm - 2:00pm | Canon Hollywood Technology and Support Center (6060 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028)
