Is a Digital Bolex a Practical camera to use to make short films?
Was wondering if the D16 Bolex is a practical camera used to make short films. Because of limits such as little freedom of transportation - living on campus - using my schools computer resources for editing - walking, walking, walking - student budget ... it is not likely that I will have anything other than a one man-band type film production workflow. I'm also not looking for an everything camera (weddings, sports, gigs) because like I said I'm not mobile. That said something ergonomically friendly is helpful. I'm also looking to find a voice and with the idea of what I'm looking for color (vibrant or realistic color palette), dynamic range and a robust-alive image is what I'm studying.
How does the D16 rank up to my circumstances?
Is it built and made for cinema?
I haven't seen films made with it that are more than 15 minutes?
Pro and Cons?
Alternative Cinema Cameras?
