Panasonic G2 Commercial Seemingly Shot with Canon 5D Mark II

Posted by on Wednesday June 30, 2010 | Media, Photo Gear


Panasonic’s PR department must be kicking itself for releasing this behind-the-scenes video of the making of a new commercial for the Panasonic Lumix G2.

Watch the clip below and you’ll see the Canon 5D Mark II with Canon L-series glass being used frequently throughout the filming of the spot even though the G2 shoots 720p HD.

Truthfully, most consumers — who this camera and the commercial are primarily aimed at — aren’t going to notice (or care) but camera geeks will and the behind-the-scenes footage is already turning up far and wide in the tech blog-o-sphere.


UPDATE: Looks like the behind-the-scenes video has been removed. Wonder why.
