Amid the lies and truths of online relationships lurks Catfish, a reality-based documentary series that unites Internet couples that have never actually met.

These cameras – which are also used to document discussions between the participants filmed in parks, cafes, and homes – include three Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Compact Cameras, two Canon XF105 High Definition camcorders, and an Canon XA25 High Definition camcorder.
