Default 'House' season finale filmed with Canon 5D Mark II

Heresy I hear you cry ! Well not exactly a Pentax thread but topical and maybe something that the next iteration of the K7 could aspire to (full 16:9 @ 1080 - I still don't understand why they bothered to offer 4:3 at 1080) :

A Canon 5D Mark II has become the first video-capable DSLR to film a whole episode of a US primetime series. Greg Yaitanes, director of FOX broadcasting company's medical drama series 'House', used the camera , a selection of of Canon's prime lenses, the 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses to shoot the season finale. Speaking via Twitter, he said that this was to achieve a shallow depth of field and a 'richer look'. He also said he 'feels it’s the future'

Even CZ have got in on this by producing a range of cine lenses for Canikon.

Yeah heard about this, apparently a few companies are making Micro 4/3 video camera's now to try to cash in on the concept and "richer look"

It's pretty impressive when you think about it, the rate in which SLR video modes has matured is incredible. Having great fun with the video on my K-7, and seen some amazing short films made with it, so roll on the K-8 (or whatever) with even better video!
