Here’s a short sizzle reel created by Vashi Nedomansky that shows various shots captured by Shane Hurlbut by using Canon 5D Mark II DSLRs as crash cams.

Thumbs up for Bjork.
Should have ended with a list of destroyed gear :)
And expensive. Damn.
That was my thinking: Those aren’t cheap crash cams
it is much cheaper than destroying cinema cameras.
WTF is with the woman getting beats? That was retarded. Cool shots but the woman getting a beat down in the middle of that was so out of place it made the entire video suck the big one.
Surely that slow-mo stuff (take a look at 1:05 – 1:10) can’t have been shot on a 5DmkII, it won’t even do 60fps!
It’s so nice to work n projects with budgets to blow sh** up and have multiple cameras to capture it and make it look cool. Everyone can buy a DSLR. But not everyone can fill an arena with people and crash a car through a wall and destroy it- just for the camera. Of course, I think a few of those should would have looked about 80-90% as good with a GoPro, but that’s the back-seat cinematographer in me. :)
Also, take note of how few shallow DoF shots there were.
