Cinematographer Nick Higgins chose the EOS C300 camera for O.J.: Made in America because of the small form factor and ability to capture long takes without stopping.  Higgins said, “The EOS C300 was the best camera to shoot this documentary.  I really appreciate the small form factor, and was able to roll for hours and hours with just two 64 GB cards and AC power.”

The ability to shoot for long periods of time with limited interruption was crucial.  “Interviews for this film lasted at least three hours and were typically around five or six hours long; our longest was eight hours long,” Higgins explained. “The topic of conversation was always intense, and the flow would have been completely thrown off if I had to interrupt for the camera.  That’s why the EOS C300 was so important to this project.”

In terms of lenses, Higgins’ relied on the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens. “I shot the vast majority on the 50mm at an f2,” Higgins said. “That way, I could make the background abstract without fearing that the subject would go in and out of focus as they breathed.”
