Should The BBC Get Canon 5D MkII Cameras?!

It seems that the BBC have accused Daily Mirror photographer James Vellacott of ripping off their footage of a U2 concert and putting it on his blog. Actually, turns out that James was using a Canon 5D MkII from a nearby hotel room. The camera is so good (as is the operator), that the BBC can't tell the difference between what their crew (using much more expensive video gear) have shot, and a single photographer using a DSLR! Seems that after Mirror lawyers explained the situation, the BBC have left James alone!

  1. It's the best compliment James could get. I thought some of the beeb's camera work was a bit iffy.

  2. I agree LOL - fyi, i too covered this story this morning
