Canon has named professional equipment and service specialists Band Pro Film & Digital as a premiere reseller of its new Cinema EOS line of products. Canon introduced the C300 in November, and unveiled prototypes of its new C500 Cinema EOS 4K Camera at NAB.
While Band Pro has been a reseller of Canon’s high definition camcorders and lenses for many years, this new collaboration incorporates not only the Cinema EOS cameras, like the C300 and C500, but also includes the EF Cinema Lenses and Canon’s popular line of DSLR cameras, such as the new EOS 5D Mark III. “For many manufacturers Band Pro can provide a bridge to the high-end production community,” said Amnon Band, president and CEO of Band Pro. “With our existing accessory lines that support the C500 and C300, we look forward to providing clients with complete packages so they can walk out the door and begin shooting immediately.”
In addition to carrying Canon’s Cinema EOS products, Band Pro is currently in talks with Canon to provide repair and service for the cinema cameras in their Burbank service center.
