Amateur film-making took another step forward today, with news that the House season finale was shot entirely on a Canon Eos 5D Mark II DSLR camera. This is the first time a prime-time drama has been shot entirely on a DSLR. Canon could not ask for better free advertising.

The Canon's digital nature made things easier for the film crew. Every second of footage was stored on flash cards, which saved quite a lot of time. The episode was completed in just 10 days of filming. It will air tonight at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Fox.

This news is a huge shot in the arm for amateur film-makers. For the first time ever, professional quality filming equipment is affordable for the masses. Sure, the Eos isn't exactly cheap, but any troupe of amateurs with enough dedication would be capable of putting together the funds to buy one eventually.
