EDITOR’S NOTE 2 DEAR ALL, This issue comes to you as our European head office goes through a heat wave and we are about to experience a very interesting lunar eclipse. I’ve just returned from a short trip across the country – stopping in Cape Town with international guests and then on to Durban to help out on the stand we had at the Durban International Film Mart. A highlight of the Cape Town trip was getting the chance to go out on a boat with world-renowned shark expert Chris Fallows and discuss his particular style of photography – I must admit that trying to get a level horizon is incredibly difficult on a boat in choppy seas. The wildlife was spectacular, and we managed a brief glimpse of a great white Apex predator – definitely one of the highlights in my photographic career. If you ever get the chance to go out and see these beasts in the wild – just go do it. Brace yourself though, because the photography is very difficult indeed. Moving on to the Durban Film Mart – we were very happy to be the only camera company showing our line-up of 4K VSLR, pro video and cinematic products to the delegates at the event. It was awesome to see our cameras in the hands of young and old filmmakers from across the continent and to get to meet a wide variety of people from this industry. It certainly looks like movies are booming across Africa and this looks like it is set to continue for the foreseeable future as there is a lot of investment from all over the world to be seen. I was encouraged by the vast level of knowledge amongst the visitors – everybody is very much aware of the 4K revolution in filmmaking and they are all willing to jump onboard. So, a few quieter weeks in office for me before travel begins in earnest. One major thing I’d like you to keep an eye out for – especially on the Canon Facebook and Instagram feeds is an event on World Photography Day 18 August – we’re going to be part of a very large instameet and it looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. Until then – keep Clicking away! Roger Machin Product Manager PVDVC Products Canon SA
