Ron Howard using Canon Hybrid DSLRs

by planetmitch7 Comments

Earlier today, we got this alert from one of our loyal readers (thanks @eplatero) and several others have pointed it out as well – but the alert is that Ron Howard (imdb profile – famous director and TV star) has been spotted using either a Canon EOS 5D Mark II or a Canon EOS 7D on a “President Reunion” skit he has been shooting. The site funny or die has a ‘behind the scenes' video that shows several scenes with this Canon HDSLR – too hard to tell if it is a 7D or a 5D2. There are some big name actors in this one too! Chevy Chase, Dana Carvey, Dan Ackroyd, Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey and more
