IT’S A WHOLE NEW WORLD Not since the introduction of sound has the world of filmmaking changed so radically and rapidly. In just a few years, digital acquisition and delivery has utterly revolutionized how we do things. Companies that had been making top quality video gear for decades were joined by companies that had been making the best film cameras and with some brilliant engineering and software design, came up with cameras that did things that would have been thought impossible (or at least highly unlikely) just a few years previous. Two results came out of this: first, cinematographers gained all sorts of new tools to work with: cameras, software, monitors and much more; but along with that came a whole raft of new things to learn. Becoming a cinematographer and improving in the field has always involved a great deal of learning and years of practical experience, but for the most part, once you learned your craft you were pretty much set. Sure there were always new toys to play with: lenses, lighting instruments, cranes, grip equipment and more (and of course you were always striving to be better and better at your profession). But these were improvements on existing technology — not so difficult to master. Digital, however, is a whole new bag of beans. Whether you are a film cinematographer transitioning to digital or just coming into the field, there is a huge mass of information to absorb.
There are two ways to approach being a digital filmmaker: you can either work constantly to learn everything you can about cameras, sensors, software and techniques or you can just say “I push the red button to record, right?” Since you are reading this book, I’m going to assume you have chosen the first option. Let’s get started.
