Kevin Clerc is renowned for his exquisitely executed travel films, which have a distinctive narrative style underpinned by rich visuals and evocative audio. Originally from Haute-Savoie in the Alps of Eastern France, Kevin has been passionate about geography and travel since childhood. He discovered the power of video after a year spent exploring Asia, South America and Africa.
The filmmaker has now built a career travelling the globe capturing the wonders that the world has to offer for brands including Discovery Channel Asia and Beautiful Destinations. A trip to document the people and culture of Madeira provided the perfect opportunity for Kevin to explore the creative potential of the hybrid Canon EOS R5 C.
At the flick of a switch, the EOS R5 C shifts from a professional 45MP stills setup to a professional 8K video setup, complete with the dedicated interface, features and controls that all pro filmmakers need. Its impressive list of specifications includes the ability to record cinematic 8K 30p footage, 4K 120p slow motion and even 8K 60p when using an external power supply. It offers multiple professional recording formats, including three new 12-bit Cinema RAW Light options, as well as popular XF-AVC and MP4 formats. The camera also supports simultaneous recording options, allowing users to record high quality RAW and proxies at the same time for easy editing on the go.
It's no wonder, then, that the compact and feature-packed EOS R5 C has piqued the interest of travel filmmakers such as Kevin.
