James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger shot this political ad with a Canon EOS Mark II 5D. Director James Cameron urges Californians to vote NO on 23, the Dirty Energy Proposition. The Director of Photography decided to go with a HDSLR as the turnaround time for post production was much quicker with one of these cameras than say a RED at 4K. It suited the project. The photographer stated they chose the 5DMKII over the 7D due the sensor, which all you HDSLR users would probably be nodding at right about now. For those that don’t the 5DMKII has been found to have a more natural colour space and a smoother image over say, the 7D and it also has a larger (full-frame) sensor which helps for a shorter depth of field and a more film-like characteristic when shooting.
