It was rumored that the production crew of Iron Man 2 used the 5D Mark II, but it isn’t until now that it has been confirmed. Â It looks like the 5D was used as a crash cam for some of the driving stunts.
â€œWithout a doubt, we couldnâ€™t have gotten the shots any other way,â€ Libatique says. His comment refers to a scene in Iron Man 2 in which the titular characterâ€™s alter ego Tony Stark drives a race car in the Historic Monaco Grand Prix and is attacked by super-villain Ivan Vanko. Canon 5D Mark II Digital SLRâ€™s served multiple roles in photographing this important sequence. One was to capture moving background plates on location in the famous European racing city; another was to provide crash-cam footage amid the sceneâ€™s high-speed auto race.â€
