Canon recently announced that its EOS 5D Mark II and 7D Digital SLR cameras were used to film action shots on the set of Marvel’s The Avengers, the new film featuring Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. The footage from these cameras provided additional angles of stunts that could be interwoven with the footage of the film’s principal cinematography cameras. Because of their small size and affordability, the crew could position their five Canon 5D Mark II and two 7D cameras in cramped and risky locations close to the stunts, enabling them to capture footage from unique angles while minimizing the need to reshoot elaborate action sequences.
