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 easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
