Just in from @kristian is this tip and video of Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) HDSLRs being used on the set of Jamie Oliver’s cooking show, “30 minute meals


Redrock Micro

Here’s the behind the scenes video (text from youtube video description):

We speak to Martha Delap, the director of the television series and a few other people involved behind the scenes.

Note that about 2:27 into the clip, one of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera men, Paul Gwilliams, is interviewed and he describes that their main cameras are Reds but that they’re using the HDSLRs for pickup shots, food presentation, etc. – ‘we’re getting the shots that Red cameras maybe can’t get – top shots of the the table’ etc.

Here’s a snippet of the video giving an example of what the camera man, Paul, is talking about:

Pardon my ignorance but what's with the "s" designation on the camera?

Are those Lilliput monitors? Looks like they are, but I'm not 100% sure since I can't see name on them. But it's the same size and button layout like on Lilliput 669HB. Thing is, Lilliput's are cheap monitors, so no matter how good they are (I use 669HB and it is good, but not great) it's kind of strange to see those being used on such production scale. So, can anyone confirm this?

i have a 5dmkii also, it's great as a b-roll camera but don't go hd with it, the quality is only good enough for SD.

It isn't a different camera designation - it simply was meant as multiple cameras

Sorry Robert, but this camera is awesome in full HD! It has been used in several Full HD productions worldwide with other cameras full hd.

There are lots of people doing full shows with it... why don't you think it is good enough?

You might be thinking of the other food show that we announced a few months ago - (and suddenly I can't think of the name)...

  1. […] Cooking shows are the perfect choice for shooting HDSLR video. The shallow depth of field can really set the mood of a show allowing the video to look like stills from a gorgeous cookbook. @PlanetMitch found this behind the scenes video of Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals and posted it on Planet5D.
