The challenge was simple: Shoot a series of commercials for a major cruise ship line amid vacationing passengers without inconveniencing them with the usual complement of equipment and crew needed for such a production. For East Pleasant Pictures, a global collective specializing in multiple forms of moving-image media, the solution was equally simple: Use the unobtrusive, high-sensitivity cinema-like imaging advantages of the EOS 5D Mark II and 1D Mark IV digital SLR cameras available from Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging.

Directed by Emmy-winning producer/director Xander Strohm, the commercials featured candid scenes of cruise ship passengers playing dodge ball, anchoring their own vacation-video newscasts, and generally having a very good time. Stash Slionski, East Pleasant Pictures director/cinematographer/partner explained that he and co-director/cinematographer/partner Damien Drake first became familiar with the compact and lightweight Canon Digital SLR cameras that made more

Jünger Audio Helps OFM Deliver Exception Clarity To South African Radio Audiences

South African commercial radio station OFM entertains its audience with a mixture of adult contemporary music, news, weather, traffic and other relevant information. Broadcasting 24 hours a day from its studios in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province, OFM is a lifestyle radio station that likes to connect with its audience through plenty of telephone interaction.

As phone-in programs are such an important part of its remit, OFM wanted to ensure that these reflected the same high audio standards as the rest of its programming. But there was a problem – the audio levels on phone-ins were not always regular and that, says OFM’s technical manager Jan Van Der Walt, was something worth investigating.

“One of our biggest technical challenges was the poor quality of the telephone conversations we were broadcasting,? he explains. “As almost all of our content is live, this became quite a problem. It was more
