Zacuto Finally Reveals Which Cameras are Which with 'Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout' Part Two
There's no question that any material Zacuto releases about cameras is going to create a stir. Actually, anytime anyone releases anything about cameras people usually get very defensive if their favorite camera isn't at the top of the list. We already ran a poll about which cameras were the favorite for No Film School readers, and if you happened to be at the shootout in person at one of the screenings, the results are pretty interesting. I've already given my thoughts on the shootout, and today with the release of Part Two, you'll be able to finally match up your favorite scenes with what cameras they were shot on. Check out a trailer below:
I won't spoil more of the test for anyone before they see it, but the empirical tests were not surprising to me and to a lot of other people at the screenings. The cameras that we expected to be at the top were at the top with few exceptions. Seeing it on the big screen was a completely different experience than seeing it online, and I have to say that it made certain cameras seem a lot closer than they might have seemed otherwise. Each scene was picked as someone's favorite in the screening we were at, and that just proves above all else that subjectivity plays a huge role in deciding what is aesthetically pleasing to different people.
