‘Act of Valor’ Utilizes Canon EOS 5D Mark II Cameras for "Physics Defying" Shots

February 28th, 2012

Act of Valor.jpgThe movie ‘Act of Valor,’ which stars
active-duty Navy SEALs, is one of the increasing number of films that
utilizes HDSLRs for getting shots that normal cameras can’t. The
smaller, lighter camera gives filmmakers a new kind of freedom in

“Because the Canon 5D Mark II is so
light weight,” says the film’s co-director Scott Waugh, “we
were able to defy conventional motion picture camera physics and
capture a high-quality cinematic image, which ultimately looked
incredible on a 100-foot theatrical screen.”

‘Act of Valor’ isn’t the first film to
take the HDSLR approach to action – many of the Marvel movies
including ‘Captain America’ and ‘Iron Man 2’ opted to shirk tradition
in favor of the new technique.
