Canon 5D/Betacam Hybrid… “FrankenCam”???

In my pursuit of all things related to HD Video Production, I stumbled across this:

No offense to Mr. Beck from Down Under, but I’m still trying to wrap my head around this one.


Yes, there is a Canon 5D “down under” there, sandwiched between the lens and the Betacam body.

Don’t get me wrong, I can think of many applications for this rig, from corporate video productions to TV commercials. It’s just so… out of the box. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’d really like to get my hands on one to play with for a day or two. If any of you see a video production crew using one in the L.A. area, drop me a line, Ill be right over.

And Mr. Beck, if you happen to stumble across this blog, I’d like to talk to you. You’re either completely mad, a genius, or a little of both. Anyone else seen an unusual rig or combo?
