2017DCS AccessoriesExpoCard600Join the Digital Cinema Society to see the latest Canon camera, the C200, along with key support and accessories necessary to create a complete camera package at Canon’s new technical service and support center in Burbank.  

There are many components in addition to the camera that are necessary to assembling a successful Digital Cinema acquisition package.  Equipment buyers sometimes put all their resources into the camera, and try to skimp on the proper support and accessories, which can greatly diminish the utility of their package.

In this Digital Cinema Society event, we’ll not only be able to experience Canon’s new facility, built from the ground up to support cinema and photography professionals, we will also get a chance to see the latest offerings from a variety of companies including, (in alphabetical order):

Cartoni – DJI – Manfrotto – MYT Works – OConnor – Redrock Micro – Sachtler – Vocas – Wooden Camera

We’ll also get an update on Canon’s latest cameras including the C200 featuring in-camera 4K RAW recording capability.

Where:  Canon Burbank, 3400 W. Olive Ave. #250, Burbank, CA  91505

When:  Tuesday evening, August 22, 2017, 6:30PM check in with presentations from 7PM to 9PM

You do not need to be a Digital Cinema Society member to attend, but RSVPs are mandatory.  Please RSVP with Canon/Accessories in subject line to:
