I never watched House, but I know a lot of people do. I am more the Flashforward type of guy. Anyways, I just found out that show director, Greg Yaitanes, revealed on twitter that they shot the season final with the 5D!
This is big. While Saturday Night Live used the 5D before as did some other shows and commercials, this is the first time the camera is used on a big TV production set that is watched by millions (afaik).
While we all know the merits of the camera, it has often been hard to sell its video capabilities to skeptics. Now, the next time someone says HDSLR can only be used for marginal jobs, we have a great show case to point them to.
Looking at all the tweets, I was surprised to see that they stayed with Canon lenses and simple rigs.
The episode airs on May 17th. And I will be watching it!
BTW, kudos to PhotocineNews for spotting this!
