Cannes Grand Prize winner shot on Canon C300

And Im not wiriting about quality of the film, I read 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' its a great film. Only what Canon community have great market and the camera its only a tool.

    I remember when all internet was invaded with the news that an episode of 'Dr. House' was done with a Canon,

  • A huge marketing budget - and legions of lemmings :-)
