Top 3 DP's:
Top 3 DP's that I've personally worked with:
Theo Van De Sande
crash - karsten gopinath is a very talented guy as well, he has a great eye, does beauty as well as the best of the best and treats his crew as he would want to be treated. look for his star to continue to rise over the next 20 years as he is under 40...which should also be part of this discussion as some of the folks mentioned are at the end of their careers or have passed...
how about under 30, under 40, 40-60 which i think is a sweet spot for a DoP, then the over 60, over 70, over 80 and still working in their 90's. (haskell comes to mind) i think a lot of 30-40 year old guys that have embraced all forms of digital are going to see their stars rise as they get more experience and work on more and more challenging projects.
Jeff and Jordan Cronenweth
I would also like to give a shout out to cinematographer Greig Fraser who is highly underrated and virtually unknown. His work is superb and I can see an Academy nomination in his future.
Check out his work: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0292132/
The award for cinematographer I have learned the most from goes to David Mullen, his work is fantastic and he is a great teacher. David, your posts are invaluable.

My all time favorites:
Christopher Doyle - In the mood for Love
Emanuel Lubezki - The tree of life
Gordon Willis - Godfather
Conrad Hall - Pretty much everything
Gabriel Figueroa for his black and white work
best one is legendary Roger Deakins of course..
So many great ones from classic Hollywood not to mention those of the independent cinema movement. Lots of great people on this list, but many others come to mind. Here's a random one -- James Wong Howe. Here's another -- Robert Surtees (or for that matter his son, Bruce Surtees). There are so many...
