Greg Yaitanes, the director of the popular medical drama House, confirmed via twitter that the season finale of the show was filmed entirely on Canon’s 5D Mark II DSLR.

Popular among cash-strapped independent filmmakers as affordable alternative to more expensive HD video cameras, DSLRs that shoot HD video are quickly becoming versatile options for amateurs and professionals alike.

Alex Jablonski, one of the co-creators of Sparrow Songs, an incredible series of short docs being produced once a month for a year, recently talked on his blog about how the Mark II is  really changing documentary film making in particular:

The  Mark II 5d does not look like an HD camera and for documentarians that is a huge bonus.  Not only have we been able to shoot in places that normally would be hesitant to have a camera crew present but more importantly people interact with this camera much differently than they would with its bigger bodied brethren.  Everyone is used to having a stills camera around and because of that the camera makes people less self-conscious.

For me this may be the cameras biggest selling point.  All the great images in the world don’t mean much if there isn’t some honesty and heart somewhere in the footage, to that end anything that helps a subject open up is invaluable.

It will be interesting to see how far DSLRs will infiltrate into the professional sphere where “big is better” and specialization have always reigned.

Check out Sparrow Songs, and tune into the premier of the House season finale on May 17th to see the5D Mark II in action.
