One thought on “The Great Camera Shootout 2011

  1. I watched this “in-theater”, with Bob Primes and Stephen Lighthill. Had a great chat with them afterwards, and while this test is limited by the fact that camera tech evolves very quickly, it is priceless as a learning tool for emerging DPs seeking a better understanding of the challenges and variables involved with the hardware in film-making. Gives a great primer on what can make or break the visuals of different types of scenes.
