Canon’s robust and versatile COMPACT-SERVO series (usa.canon.com/compactservo) provides fantastic 4K imagery in a lightweight, yet rugged body. Combining technology from Canon’s EF, Cinema, and Broadcast lens lines, this series produces dependable performance for a broad array of shooting environments. With built-in image stabilization, autofocus, and auto iris (when used on compatible cameras), these powerful lenses offer some of the most popular features of Canon EF lenses, while also delivering cinematic look and feel, with the ability to be used ENG-style like a broadcast lens. A servo drive unit comes standard with these lenses, allowing for intuitive and smooth control of the zoom via either the buttons on the lens or the optional ZSG-C10 handheld grip attachment.
Boffo Video is a Southern California based production company, capturing weddings, corporate events, and commercials. Started in 2010, they now have a team of 11 videographers who have filmed over 450 weddings all over the country. For founder Paul Santiago, the key to successfully capturing a wedding is to travel light and to go unnoticed.
When Paul had the opportunity to shoot the first ever wedding footage with a COMPACT-SERVO 70-200mm lens, he was thrilled with its performance, and how its small size allowed him to blend into the background and capture events unfolding naturally. The servo drive of the lens enabled smooth and steady zooming at adjustable speeds, while the parfocal nature of the COMPACT-SERVO series allows for constant aperture throughout the zoom range with no optical axis shifting.
