Thought you might find this interesting. 

Have you ever heard of Andrew Disney?  He is working on the first feature film shot entirely on DSLR, a Canon 5D Mark II - but with Nikon Lenses.  For recording sound they used HVX200 (whatever that is).

There's some little teasers on their website, but no synopsis or much else.

I am pretty sure a Nightmare Before Christmas was shot on Canon DSLRs with Nikon lenses albeit stop motion animation

Why would they use Nikon lenses on a Canon body?

yeah, there's been a number of stop motion films shot with DSLRs

Corpse Bride and that new 3D one Coraline

Maybe they meant the first live action feature film.

this was discussed in another thread. In a nutshell because Canon doesn't allow aperture control in video; and autofocus is virtually not there - so any lens with manual aperture ring would do the work; and often Nikon is chosen.

Thanks for the info. Good to know.

Because by using older manual Nikon lenses they will be able to adjust the aperture ring and focus during a single take. This would not be possible using modern Canon EF lenses or 3rd party equivalents which are locked during recording.

But they are being a bit uncool talking about the geek technology before the film is made. Afterwards, if it is great, then that should be part of the story.

EDIT: I see someone else posted the answer as I was finding the words

Good to know.  One more question, how do they managed to put in on a Canon with Nikon mount? That would be customized , I s'pose?

In the case of Corpse Bride (not Nightmare, that was a 93 movie, Pre 1D), it's because the production company already had a bunch of Nikon lenses.

I've also heard some shots on the new Harry Potter movie are being done on 5D II.  It's spurring the rumor there's a beta firmware giving more manual controls floating around.

Adapters for that are available from many sources. Since the flange to sensor distance is much shorter on a Canon than on a Nikon, no glass is needed in the adapter.
