Season finale of 'House' filmed with Canon DSLR

Photography nuts will want to catch the season finale of 'House' to catch a glimpse of a rather unique filming technique

Considering the TV series House centers around an unorthodox doctor, it isn't too surprising that the production crew took an unorthodox approach to filming the Season Six finale.

According to a tweet by director Greg Yaitanes, the production crew shot this year's season finale using the HD video recording feature of a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR still camera.

In replies to fans' questions on Twitter (via PetaPixel), Yaitanes says that the US$2500 Cannon camera was perfect for the finale's many "tight" scenes. During filming, the production crew didn't use any stabilization features or tools beyond a small tripod, and used only a couple lenses aside from the standard Canon lenses.

Be sure to catch the season finale when it airs on May 17 (in the US -- sorry Australian readers!)

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
