5 Camera driving plate rig

This is pretty awesome; a five camera rig used to shoot driving plates; and the five cameras are all Canon's SLRs! The short movie below features Rodney Charters and Sam Nicholson, and there's some interesting quotes:
Significantly we have shot all the plates this season for "24" on 5Ds and 1Ds, so now we're moving it into principle photography, second unit, and very soon to be first unit.

We are very much encouraging Canon to build us a set of motion picture Canon lenses for these cameras that will give us things like meta data and auto-focusing while shooting, which could be really revolutionary.
Read more about it here and here at the Planet5D blog.
