Friday Fun: HBO’s True Blood to Be Shot with Canon 5D Mark IIs?
May 14th, 2010
First there was the much discussed season finale of Fox medical drama House, and now, it appears, that HBO's forked-tongue-in-cheek vampire series, True Blood, may also be shot with Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLRs.
According to Cinema 5D, the crew from True Blood just borrowed two Canon 5D Mark IIs and a Red Rock Micro rig from a noted Hollywood rental house to shoot the series. It also looks like they might be using Zeiss ZE lenses. (If you have HBO money, why not?)
Yes, this is a somewhat speculative story but considering how many TV shows, commercials and movies are being shot in high def with HD-DSLRs these days, it's very possible.
We'll add more details to this story as we get them. (via Wiegartner.)
