Act of Valor Trailer

It looks like many directors are turning to using digital cameras to film their movies, due to the high quality and portability of newer DSLRs. The latest Act of Valor trailer was released a few days ago, and according to PhotographyBay, the film makers are mostly using Canon 5D mark ii’s.
