According to the director of photography, David Boyd, at first they thought they would RED, some other digital camera or even 35 mm for shooting. But someone had brought a few rolls of 16 mm, which when they tried gave them a certain texture and grain that allowed them to film the zombie make-up effects more effectively making them look very believable. Boyd, who shot another series completely with just 16 mm, also did the same with The Walking Dead and was also responsible for making the show on time, under budget and yet looking great.(source)

22. The word “zombie” is never used in the show. They are instead categorized into different groups – “Walkers”, “Lamebrains”, “Biters”, “Rotters”, “Lurkers”, “Roamers” and “Geeks”.
