Tomboy : Canon 5D Mark II or Canon 7D?
A few weeks ago, I talked about the feature film Tomboy, directed by Céline Sciamma, and I said that the film had been mostly shot with a 5D. When the film was released, several articles talked about the 5D, and several others talked about the 7D. So, after my message, I decided to ask the production company to get the real information. They answered that the feature film was mostly shot with the 7D.
The film is projected in the french theatres since april 21, 2011. So, I can say that to the best of my knowledge, this film is the first french production that gets such a succes with this camera.
The 7D is probably the less expensive "professional" digital camera that allows you to put the film on the theatre screen. For me, it was mostly shot with the 5D because at first glance the picture quality was as good as the 5D one. Like I said in my previous message in french, I think that Tomboy is a success for its story and for the way Céline has put the kids in front of these little digital cameras. On the technical side, I also think that Tomboy is a succes for the Canon 7D. Again, kudos to the team of the film...
