Canon customers on 10th Dec. 2021 had an exciting opportunity to interact with one of the brand’s advanced broadcasting video cameras: the Canon XF605. It has been hailed for its high-resolution video using a compact form and mobile workflow options including an iPhone app, a LAN port, and built-in dual-band, MIMO Wi-Fi.

The guests at the event drawn from the broadcasting, live streaming and filmmaker’s industry were able to test the camera and got an opportunity to better understand the features that make it ideal for the modern-day videographer. Canon offered a pre-order offer bundling the Canon XF 605 video camera with a BP-60 battery.

Mr Timothy Owase, the CEO of the Kenya Film Commission who officiated the event, commended Canon for innovations that are responsive to the needs of film producers and broadcasters.

“The Government has already made several strides in elevating the film sector in this country,” Mr Owase said. “It is therefore very encouraging to see organizations such as Canon supporting growth of the sector with significant investments that will further propel the professionals in the creative industry to be able to compete competitively on a global scale with the right technology.”

He said Kenyans are now demanding quality content, and it is imperative that film producers upgrade their equipment and techniques to meet this ever-growing audience taste.
