This is what’s called a single-plate, 22.3 megapixel CMOS sensor from a busted up Canon 5D MK III HDSLR.
The camera was destroyed here in Chicago last year on a TV show called, Chicago Fire.
5D low pass filter assembly
circuit board is also from the same unfortunate camera.
It seems like only a few short years ago that when we needed a crash camera for a particular shot, we’d bring out the old, reliable and iconic Eyemo.
Times have changed and the new crash camera – the new expendable HD camera – is the 5D MK III. At least for awhile anyway.
I’m ok with that, but for some reason that I can’t really explain, I still feel sad whenever I see a camera destroyed.
