FOX's "House" Season Finale Shot on Canon 5D

If you follow the DSLR news you likely know that the recent BIG NEWS was that the season finale of the FOX network show "House" was shot on the Canon 5D. This really is incredible when you think about it.... I mean, a network show can shoot on pretty much ANYTHING they want, including 35mm film - although that is becoming a rarity.

Anyway, as usual, DP Philip Bloom has done a great job of following this and actually scored an interview with the Executive Producer/Director of the show.

Here's a link to his blog with info on the shoot, and also a link to the audio from the interview. Well worth checking out...

  • Red Scarlet vs Canon 5D should be interesting to watch. There are advantages in having a RAW file that you can develop the way you want. The Canon 5D does still in RAW, but the Scarlet I believe does video in RAW.

  • Yeah, I agree, although the Canon's have the edge right now because it's been out for a while (who knows when Scarlet will hit the streets?), it's so popular and it's about half or less the proposed Scarlet costs, etc. But your RAW point is valid - however, the rumor is that Canon will offer RAW video recording in future versions... exciting time to be a filmmaker for sure.

  • Thanks for review, it was excellent and very informative.
    thank you :)ctedtks

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and And speaking of, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
