abel cine c300 event in nyc was great!

i don't know where others buy their gear but i buy from abel cine/nyc.

the first camera i ever bought was from b&h because they had the lowest price.

but over the years, and three cameras later, i buy from abel cine/nyc because of what they offer nyc film-makers: service, experience AND price.

tonight abel cine/nyc hosted a gathering where the c300 was explained, displayed and played with.

larry thorpe from canon did a great job explaining the technology.

the abel crew consisted of moe shore, mitch gross and andy shipsides-each really put together an interesting and informative presentation.

sure, it was a dog and pony show showcasing the c300 because abel cine/nyc wants to sell c300s.

but it is the way abel cine/nyc does what they do that so often leaves me impressed.

thank you larry thorpe.

thank you moe, mitch and andy.

thank you pete abel for knowing how to run a camera shop.

be well.

And not to mention - Able Cine are sponsors of dvxuser. Not only are they sponsors but Mitch Gross and Andy Shipsides regularly chime in with info to assist members that has nothing to do with trying to make a sale. Good crew for sure.

I bought my FS100 from Abel Cine. The were great. Their technical blog is a must read for anybody into filmmaking, IMHO. I would love to make it to an event at their location, but don't live close enough to ether coast.

I love their blog posts and the first look video Andy did last week. Hopefully they will do a DR test soon.

@abel cine - the 17-55 is the most useful range for filmmaking ... it would be great to know if their is any vignetting off the 17-55/2.8 efs

Thorpe's explanation of the camera's signal processing (while i can't say i understood all of it) was impressive. it seems almost over-engineered in some ways, given the mpeg2 output, and it makes me wonder if there's more in reserve with this hardware and processing.

They've got one coming to Columbus, OH, on Feb 4. But, it's a Saturday...which is weird. Wish it was any other day of the week...they'd get a lot more people coming.

Indeed!

BTW on a side note: I am sooo glad that Abel Cine is putting more prices on their website now.

I always liked Mitch Gross's postings on Reduser and always wanted to buy from Abel Cine - but the lack of prices sucked and they didn't get quotes back to me fast enough. I kinda have it drummed into my mind that "if you have to ask the price, it's not worth it to buy it" because pretty much every piece of equipment or software that I've ever wanted that didn't have a listed price... a) turned out to be really expensive and b) it would have been a really bad idea if I had bought it, because prices dropped a heck of a lot in the years that followed. Anyway, I always ended up buying from B&H, which had prices...

But thanks to Abel Cine actually listing stuff... it looks like this is going to change!

Also, for anyone who attended, you may remember that Mitch was supposed to do a live demo on controlling depth of field with the C300, but some technical difficulties prevented him from finishing his presentation... however, he just recently shot a blog video that covers a lot of what he wanted to do in that presentation. Apologies, but there's no lovely model in this one :happy:
