Anybody know what camera they use for the new show Fringe on Fox or House? I've always wondered what was used for big time TV shows. My guess is a Variacam but i could be totally wrong. If anybody knows, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
"Big time" television dramas are primarily on film (at least for the current season), mostly 35 mm 3 perf - unless they're on the CW network. The only film shows on the CW are One Tree Hill (shot on S16mm) and Supernatural (shot on 3 perf 35mm). Every other drama on that network is shot on a video camera, almost exclusively either Panavision Genesis or Sony F900. There is no network drama shot on Varicam as far as I know, only cable productions (American Chopper comes to mind).

To answer your specific question, House is on 35mm 3 perf film. I believe Fringe is as well, although it's possible that the series is on the Genesis.
