I have been hearing about this phenomenon for a few months now and then my director mentioned that he wanted to shoot on it. I thought, hmmm, that sounds both intriguing and scary at the same time.
Intriguing for the potential cost-savings and ease of use. Scary for what could go wrong, which could result in delays and bad footage, etc.
Here is the press release from Canon: Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR Camera
Check out this blog entry from Neptune Salad regarding this camera: great news for filmmakers, bad news for film.
I'd love thoughts from anyone who has used this camera to make a film. I'll report on how it goes for us!
