Hawaii 5-O is using Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews)s as well as sony EX3s for the current season. This isn't necessarily huge news any more… but there's an interesting behind the scenes video with the Director of Photography Ron Garcia that is included on this CNET post about the entire show.

Ron says in the video “they (the HDSLRs) do such a good job that I'm using them for actual drama scenes and dialog” and he continues to talk about a 4 day shoot inside a battle ship that would have been difficult with other cameras so they used the Canon EOS 5D Mark II exclusively.
