Larry Jordan: You've mentioned the C200 and the C300 but you haven't mentioned any of the DSLR cameras. Is that a different group within Canon?

Alex Sax: We all work together but yeah, we have two teams, I work on the cinema and pro video side, but we get a lot of crossover because the DSLRs do video. But what I try to remind people is that the DSLR is engineered for still photography. It's a different engineering team and they're really prioritizing still shooters. So, I think you can do incredible work with the DSLRs. But I think that if you're really doing just motion, you're probably going to want to look at a camera that's engineered just for motion.

LJ: And for people that want to know what the news is from Canon, what's the new news?

AS: We launched a really exciting product, we actually won an award for it, and a new lens. It's our C700, which is our top of the line.
