EDIT2: Was it as good as we had hoped? I would say better. I have only seen a 720p version from itunes on my laptop but it was awesome. Fantastic episode full stop and did I forget I was watching a DSLR episode by the end? Yep! Which is EXACTLY what you want. It added to the claustrophobic atmosphere of the episode and didn’t jar once. A huge success and the beginning of major acceptance for these cameras by so many more people.
Here are some photos that director Greg Yaitanes sent me that he took from his iphone of the cameras on set…
EDIT: YES tonight it goes out. Wish I was in US to watch it. Am in Norway, so will have to wait until it is on itunes. The lucky ones…ENJOY! This is a massive day for DSLR filmmaking.
Finally we can see the first two minutes of this much hyped (for us camera geeks) episode as it was shot on 3 Canon 5DmkIIs. I think you will agree it’s looking great despite the low non HD quality here.
