But the problem is no is going to watch this and judge the dp. They are gong to see How the dp lit it and judge the camera.
DPs are worse than 8th grade girls, they gossip like crazy. An unforunately tests like these get throw in the rumor mill as representations of cameras. Deakins could light something
On an iPhone that would look incredible. But is that reason for every other dp to start shooting features on iPhones? No.
If u can't make a fair test, based solely on a camera performing in iys natural element, then don't do one.
If it werent for crap like this DPs would do their own tests. Unfortunately, even those that do have preconceived biases because of these 'shootouts' and the industry suffers as a result.
I must say that I disagree with pretty much this entire statement and the assumptions that drive it...especially given that no one has seen the project yet.
