I was lucky enough a couple weeks back to sit with the glitteri of the photo world for some drinks at a foto festival. The person in charge of the photography at the NYT said that the piece Todd Heisler, who was sitting there as well, had just done on Early On-Set Alzheimers in Columbia was the best she thinks has been done to date that combines video with photography. The new Canon 5d takes super high quality video as well as huge sized still image files. Two films at Cannes this year were shot with the camera.
The story is an important and incredibly shoot piece indeed.
