Digital Cinematography vs Film: Tides are Turning. | Gear in Motion |

"As I embark on a long creative, exciting journey on Need for Speed with DreamWorks, I wanted to share some of my most recent findings from a five day camera test that pushed every camera to its breaking point. Our final choice was a three camera collaborative for the look and feel of this film.


“The Ultimate Camera Test”


The Director, Scotty Waugh, wanted to test all of the latest digital cameras that have come out recently as well as some that have been around for four years, which is rare. He wanted to find his emulsion. I am tested out, so we are going to take a break from tests for a while. Stay tuned for four upcoming posts that will start with the Black Magic camera in a few weeks.

We tested:
Sony F65 • Sony F5 • Arri Alexa • Red Epic • 
Canon 1DC • Canon C500 • Blackmagic • 
GoPro Hero 3 • 35mm Film • "
