Hello,

I might be a bit off-topic, but the Norwegian comedy "Dag" (10 episodes) was done entirely on Canon EOS-1D Mark IV. The decision to do so was based on an intensive testing using the 5D Mark II. I haven't found out why the crew chose the 1D Mark IV instead of the 5D Mark IV, but I guess they had particular production needs? I've seen all the episodes on air AND the newly released DVD. It's just great television. I was amazed when I found out that it was done entirely on DSLRs. The picture quality stands out as being very filmic and high quality. In the behind the scenes interviews the DOP, an experienced filmmaker here in Norway, talks very positive about the experiences with the DSLR technology (even if he admits that the technology has quite a few shortcomings).

You'll find info on the DOP here: Pål Bugge Haagenrud - IMDb

I include a link to one of the trailers to this series. But please, this is a dark comedy. You might find some of the clips in this trailer offensive. You're warned. This series has been a huge success. Not once did the DSLR technology stand in the way of the storytelling. I really hope they'll make another series. I've enjoyed this one very much.

Here is a link to an info page about the production. It's in Norwegian, but at least you'll see the camera rig.

I really enjoy using DSLRs in my work as a creative director. I've done quite a few productions utilizing the Canon 5D Mark II myself the last year. I'm actually doing a documentary using the 5D Mark II right now. I include a link to a short clip from another television documentary I did earlier this year.


Kind regards,
-terje

Richard: Thank you for your kind words. The "new tools" (DSLRs and the new big sensor cameras coming soon) really make it possible for us independent film makers to explore the qualities that's usually associated with more expensive productions... :-) It's very inspiring times for sure. I'm looking forward to next year's NAB to check out all the new gadgets.

No wonder you enjoy the trailer link, being from UK? I must admit that I've quite a few British comedies in my film collection. There's nothing like British comedy :-)

I'll let you know if I hear of any plans of releasing "Dag" in the UK, Richard!

A new feature film 'The Rafters' by director John Carney (Once, Zonad) has wrapped recently. It had been shot with a number of 7D's that had been converted by FGV Schmidle in Germany for PL mounts etc. This movie will certainly be released in cinemas next year.

An image of the set up can be seen here: http://www.vastvalley.com/detail.php...&category_id=2

I have heard that the subway footage on Black Swan was shot on a 7D in order to be stealthy. I hope to see it this weekend. It's in limited release in major cities right now.

Feature shot on 5dMkII

Shot on 3 x 5DMkII's.
Shown in competition at this year's Tokyo International Film Festival on a 50 ft screen.
Any out-of-focus will become very visible, but apart from that, the image holds up perfectly (projection of an HDCAM tape).
