House Season Finale Shot Using 5D Mark II

An article has surfaced that claims the final episode of this seasons House MD has been shot using a Canon 5D Mark II.

You can read more here.

According to the director of the show Greg Yaitanes he was quite impressed with the video quality of the 5D Mark II and claimed in a Twitter interview that he "loved it [5D Mark II] and feel it's the future.".

They used "all of the Canon prime" lenses in filming and also used the 24-70 and 70-200 zooms.  It's interesting to note they used Canon lenses for their super shallow depth of field.

The show has been traditionally filmed using 35mm film, so this is a big step forward for the House crew and for cinematography in general. 

Being a big House MD fan, I can't wait until May 17th to see this episode!
