Scripted cable TV series shot entirely on Canon 7D

A lot of Hollywood movies and TV series now feature Canon dSLRs as “second unit cameras” (e.g. Captain America), or as “crash cams” (e.g. Iron Man), or “one-episode tests” (e.g. House), but it’s rare to find a scripted TV series that it’s shot entirely with one of these cameras.

Enter Wilfred, a comedy on FX. The American adaptation of this originally-Australian show is using the Canon 7D exclusively, and it looks great. Proof that you can shoot great video with these dSLRs as long as you employ a good focus pull.

All 13 episodes are available for free viewing via Hulu or IMDb (possibly only in the US though). Stars Elijah Wood.
