Thanks for the link. It was a good discussion and covered a lot of ground. It says something profound when a top rated show is willing to not only use this instead of a film camera but take advantage of it to push the limits of what they can do. They said that they did a number of tests to do direct comparison to film and were mostly very happy with the comparisons. Many of the comments were about the efficiency the camera brought to the production process. Items such as ability to work in tight spaces without removing walls, and the ability to abandon the delays related to working with film, and working in very low light. They did depend heavily on the camera operators skills to make up for deficiencies of the cameras and lenses, but said it worked out okay.
They didnít suggest abandoning film cameras. In fact at one point Mr Yaitanes said that they were worried about the impact using the Canon may have with their other camera vendor. Then he added that the competition is actually good for all.
In the end they said their goal, as story tellers was the driving force. They emphasized that the Canons had a some limitations but they were definitely a worthy addition to the toolbox
I'm a fan of the series and am looking foreword to see if the product is as good as the discussion.
