Canon UK is giving anyone who purchases selected Canon camcorder products between 15 August and 10 October 2013 the chance to win a Brands Hatch driving experience weekend among other prizes.
The competition is in celebration of the Canon EOS C300 being used to capture action shots in 'Rush', the new Formula 1 racing thriller directed by Ron Howard.
Director Ron Howard chose the EOS C300 for the action scenes because of the way it enabled the cinematography team to explore the scenes in a more creative and expressive way. He said: "we were even more aggressive and ambitious and experimental about tucking the camera away or going handheld with a longer lens from an off-position and using it as a way to capture something unexpected. In two very significant ways, it was very, very different. The hand-held shots were sometimes close-ups, creating an intimacy. The other shots were grabbing the unexpected visual possibilities of a scene. It became a great tool on both fronts."
