DSLR News Shooter have just shared this story from Sky News, which was originally posted by London based camera man Duncan Sharp. Duncan used a 5DmkII to film some remarkable footage. Not just the perfect tool for the job, a DSLR was the only tool for the job given that the Egyptian authorities wouldn't let ENG cameras into the country.
UPDATE: New video after the break
Here's the spec:
Camera and Lens: only a 5DmkII and 24-105mm IS lens, with no rig and no Z-finder.
Audio: a Tascam DR-100 recorder and a Sennheiser mic.
Editing: Lexar FW800 CF Card Reader - log and transfer using EOS plugin into Final Cut
UPDATE: This is the final video of Duncan's report on the Egyptian Revolution.
