HGTV / Johlt Productions
These photos are from “Power Broker,” shot for San Francisco-based Johlt Productions, starting with the pilot in the spring of 2012 through Season One continuing into early 2013. The show was shot on the just-released Canon C300. We started with the EF-mount version of the camera. But after a weekend of shooting, We switched to the PL-mount version of the C300, utilizing the Able-Cine HDx35 Adaptor to allow for the use of B4-Mount lenses. This allowed the ease of operating a traditional ENG-style zoom lens, (as is typical on a reality show), but with the beauty of the depth of field of Super 35mm that the C300 affords.
