Canon EOS 5D Mark II captures U.S. Navy SEALs in Act of Valor

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR Cameras Take Moviegoers Deep Into the Daring Operations of Active-Duty U.S. Navy SEALs in Relativity Media's Act of Valor

In an unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs in a film like no other in Hollywood's history. A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operations, Act of Valor blazes into theatres nationwide on February 24th and features a gripping story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey. This fast-paced, depiction of daring covert operations delivers a thrilling mix of stealthy tension, intense human drama, and sudden fierce combat waged by lethal heroes armed with the world's best training and firepower. Act of Valor is a Bandito Brothers film produced and directed by Mike "Mouse" McCoy and Scott Waugh and written by Kurt Johnstad. Crucial to capturing the film's absorbing up-close-and-personal action was its use of lightweight, highly mobile EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR cameras from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. As director of photography, and now member of Canon's Explorer of Light program, Shane Hurlbut explained, the film could not have been made with any other camera system.
