Details are a bit light on this one, but the Planet 5D
blog has received an email from the director of photography on 24
, who himself received an email from the DP of Dollhouse
, who passed on a video of a Canon 5D Mark II
helmet mount built by the folks at Panavision. The rig was apparently designed specifically for use in fight scenes and other instances where a very close camera point-of-view is beneficial, and of course for "parachute drops and the like." The story also goes that the mount might have actually been used on Iron Man
, although that's yet to be confirmed. Hit up the read link below to check out the video for yourself, although it unfortunately doesn't actually include any sample footage taken with the rig.
