  2. There is this old one ... https://variety.com/2009/digital/features/is-it-really-cheaper-to-shoot-in-digital-1118008522/ And a 2015 indie experience https://www.moviemaker.com/archives/moviemaking/cinematography/film-v-s-digital-is-the-expense-of-shooting-on-film-a-misconception What's your thoughts generally (not only on the articles...)
  3. Hello, When you are metering a scene, do you meter for the camera's dynamic range, or for the 6 stops in SDR or the 13+ stops in HDR? For instance, if your camera has 6 stops of highlight dynamic range, and 8 stops of shadow dynamic range, do you keep everything in your scene between those 14 stops or do you keep everything in between the lets say 6 stops of standard dynamic range? I hope this question makes sense! Thanks in advanced to anyone who can help! - Matt
  4. Hi all, I was wondering how one would go about exposing or even using color effect filters like color gradients, Coral, Antique Suede or Day for Night optical filters while shooting on a digital camera and delivering in color. For example, say that you are using an Antique Suede. Wouldn't depriving the sensor of blue light be very destructive to the raw image? To my understanding the blue channel displays the most noticeable noise the most often. If so, how would you combat this? What are the advantages of doing such an important color decision in camera rather than in post apart from
  5. What are some ways I can make the most out of my Canon C100 MKII? I've shot a few micro films on it, but I feel like I may not be using the camera to it's full potential. I watch test videos on Vimeo and they look incredible, but when I shoot I feel like I could get a way better image from my Nikon D3200.

  8. Hi everybody. I have a doubt concerning shooting anamorphic on digital cameras. I know the different camera menus (I'm talking from my Epic and Alexa experience) give me the option to chose between 1.3x, 2.0x and 2.0mag (this last one I have no idea of what it is) anamorphic desqueeze factor but I have no idea of what the rule of tumb is and which one to chose according to what. Feel absolutely free to add anything else that you thing might make things clearer. Thanks a lot, Davide
  9. Hi, I'm planning on applying to a film school this summer, for a directing course. My main focus has always been directing, with cinematography being both a fascinating hobby and something I've had to do for the ultra low budget films I've made. Now, the requirements are that you submit at least two films, of which at least one "made on film (16mm, super 16mm or 35mm)". I've got plenty of digital films to submit, but nothing on film. So I have to make a new one. I've never shot anything on film and, as much as I'd like to have this experience, it would be very expensive. Even with
  10. Hi, I'm currently in pre-production on a "kitchen-sink" social realism drama and I'm looking at films like 'Fish Tank' and 'This is England' as visual references for the look of this film. I want to use the flat and dry colour palettes used in these films to create a similar mood and atmosphere for my film. Eventhough my influences are from an 80's style, this is a creative choice for a film with a contemporary story. I will be testing the Sony F55 and the Blackmagic distagon lenses next week to see if this would be a possible substitute for shooting 16mm film as this would be too expe

  13. Hi Guys, does anyone have experience with shoting Sony FS7 + anamorphic lenses? Is it doable technicly- I mean like a desqueeze option in the menu, or is it done in a difrent way? I have a choice to shot a project with Alexa and prime lenses, but I woud rather go for a cheaper camera with S log and use more expensive anamorphic lenses for their look. Thanks for any advices

  22. As I understand it, most big-budget feature movies record on film as opposed to digital; the common claim being that film provides a much more cinematic image, etc. Does anyone think that we'll come to a point when digital cameras are able to produce an image, indistinguishable from film - and that cinematographers will choose digital over film due to artistic choices instead of being led by financial considerations?
  23. What is the difference between a traditional digital camcorder that looks like actual video made for multi cam productions like soap operas, & camcorders like Arri Alexa that look as much like film as digital technology can manage? Is it the frame rate? Depth of field? Shutter speed? Resolution? Something ridiculously complicated? What is it about these cameras that makes the footage look that different from one another? Additionally, what is the official wordage to differentiate between these 2 types of digital camera? The film-mimicking one has a large possibility of names (like ‘film-s

    23.98 vs 24

    My question is partly technical, and partly just a curiosity: When shooting digitally, has anyone noticed a difference between shooting 23.976, and straight 24.00 FPS. I know this is the nearly negligible difference, but these are two different rates of capture. is there any perceptive change in how it feels or the way movement is perceived? Just some context: shooting a film with some folks that are used to shooting film. The project in mind will end up with some sort of theatrical release however it'll obviously be shot, finished and watched all digitally. If this
  25. As someone who loves film and the process of it all, and wanting a lucrative career in filmmaking, I would fight anyone who says shooting digital is better (than film) or anyone who puts film down for any reason because I believe film is superior. I still do, when it comes to the approach and the finished product. Well, fast forward into reality, I was about to throw down $3,000+ on an Arri BL4 (plus extras), spoke to a few owners who were more than willing to sell. And although I had that driving force to shoot film and have a big ol’ bad camera, something was bugging me, something was ho
