ISO stands for isolated, or isolation. That means the camera is recorded,
by itself, on a dedicated machine. The video is edited later by matching
time code. In the high-def world, on a mobile unit, the cameras are
generally all the same, with conversion kits for handheld or studio-style
use. The cameras mounted on jibs are in the hand-held configuation,
although they might not use the viewfinder on the camera, depending on the
configuration. The lenses are incredibly expensive. If you want to get a
look at the basic equipment used on that show, look here:
I don't know which unti they used but it was one of the Denalis. Also,
there's no telling how much stuff they augmented the basic (!) truck
