Kiwi shooter Rodney Charters, DP/Director of many TV shows including the run and gun 24, recently tweeted this pic (and with his schedule, you wonder how he has time to tweet?!?), show the beast 24-275 T2.8 Panavision lens mounted on the new Canon 7D. Panavision built that lens mount custom for Rodney.
So now we know US TV has much lower broadcast standards than the BBC, who rejected the 5D2 for even B cam work, and worse ... ratified the XDCAM EX as gold. :wacko:

Sorry for the thumbs and links but I refuse to tweet Rodney for permission. :)Click to see the larger image.

Rugby Fan? ;) I have met NFL players and let me tell you I NEVER considered calling them pansies, self preservation mode prevailed :wacko: I am now modifying the Get Dean To Warm Water Fund to Get Dean To Warm Water and American Baseball And Football Games So He Can Have Lots Of Beer And Learn The Games Fund.

(BTW more Natural World programming works for me too)
