Canon HD-EC Prime Lens Captures 'Interstate'
The makers of the film noir road movie "Interstate," chose the Canon series of six HD electronic cinematography Prime lenses to capture sharp images of the indie film.

During the 16-day shooting schedule, the shooters used a Panasonic Varicam and the Canon line of HD-EC 2/3-inch Cine Prime Lenses, including FJs5mm, 9mm, 14mm, 24mm, 35mm and 55mm.

"Shooting in digital HD is now an alternative to shooting with 35mm film for motion pictures, thanks to these primes," said DP Pascal Chappuis.

The core of the Canon FJx Prime Lens series comes from the combination of Hi Index, Ultra Low dispersion glass and multilayer coatings. Canon's internal focus uses a two-group floating optical system.

"Interstate" is currently in post production and slated for festival release in mid-2006.
