Always thinking about cinematography it is amazing how far the industry has some. 2-Perf Mind got me thinking about how easily accessible camera are compared to year ago when movies were made solely on filmstock. Nowadays many people can get just a fairly cheap DSLR camera and take outstanding pictures or videos. You don’t need to be a professional to be able to be a creative. The cost of equipment is still on the expensive side when comparing it to various other hobbies but you put in what you are willing to pay and what you want to capture. I believe this could be what separates pros from semipro and amateurs. When I looks at my future of working on films or perhaps even having my own studio I know I am store for a long line of expenses. Cameras, lights, editing software, sets, props, rigs, computers, monitors, mics, and so on. The list could go on. So while the camera itself can be easily accessible there is a lot that comes into play when thinking about cinematography. Its an exciting but expensive industry. For the time being I am fine with my DSLR, a few lenses, and some minor other accessories. Always looking forward to upgrade though.
