HD docu-comedy shot with Canon wide-angle, zoom HD lenses


Director of photography Scott Billups uses the Canon HJ11ex4.7B IRSE mounted to Sony CineAlta cameras for the new docu-comedy “Closing Escrow.”
Shooting in the unpredictable style of improvisational and documentary filmmaking requires flexible, responsive technology to adjust to sudden changes in the actions of the people in front of the lens. That is why executive producer Randall Dark convinced Creator/Director Armen Kaprelian to use Canon wide-angle, portable HD zoom lenses to shoot their new real estate themed comedy, “Closing Escrow.”

The Canon wide-angle HD lenses on Dark’s two Sony CineAlta not only achieved sharp, high-quality images but also let him use the lenses’ versatile zoom and focus controls to keep up with the actors.

The HJ11ex4.7B IRSE, a portable, wide-angle HD zoom lens, features e-HDxs technology, which employs the X-Element and Power Optical System for high-quality optics in a robust, compact, and lightweight housing that weighs 4.10lbs. The Canon lenses provided a solution for the production team’s time and budget constraints.
