Prokit are hosting yet another of our popular hands-on open days at our Chiswick based showroom. But this time, our event is more creative then ever.

Taking place between 1pm and 8pm on Tuesday the 11 August the event will give attendees the chance to get to grips with a number of new and noteworthy products.

Available to see and demo will be the – soon to be released – Canon C300 Mark II, various Canon Cine lenses, a Canon DP-V3010 30” 4K monitor, plus DA Vinci Resolve software.

Canon's leading Product Specialist, Sam Smith, will be on hand to demonstrate the benefits of the camera to you, as well as show you a few of its secrets.


During the event

Activities during the day will include a live make up artist and model, giving attendees the chance to shoot a moving subject showcasing the C300 Mark II’s ability to capture skin tones, and colours.

Moreover, Nick Shaw from Antler Post will be on hand to help you get the most out of C-Log as he offers hourly workshops on working with Canon Log Gamma.

Nick has been working in post-production for over 15 years, and some of his credits include Warner Brothers, Universal, Twentieth Century Fox, Eon Productions, RED, ARRI, Filmlight and The Foundry.

His experience in post gives him valuable insight into the issues involved in data-driven workflows, taking footage securely and seamlessly from set to post.

New generation of EOS-C range

With the ability to record 10-bit 4:2:2 files internally at up to 410Mbps in 4K, or 10/12-bit 4:4:4 files in 2K/Full HD, with up to 15 stops of dynamic range, the EOS C300 Mark II provides footage suitable for extensive post-production work, producing crisper images across the full colour spectrum with reduced ‘colour bleed’.

The EOS C300 Mark II offers support for a wide range of colour space options, including BT.2020, the Canon Cinema Gamut and DCI-P3. The camera is also the first Cinema EOS model to feature brand new Canon Log2 technology, which enables the 15-stops of dynamic range, significantly wider than previous Cinema EOS cameras

Canon’s new range of XF-AVC H.264 codecs, designed to be compatible with industry standard Non-Linear Edit systems, makes integrating both 4K and 2K/Full HD footage into workflows effortless, while maintaining the highest image quality.
