That's an interesting point but I get the impression this guy lives in hotel rooms basically and is probably bored to tears by sky scraper hotel rooms, which means the practice would still be effective for him. It's probably really hard to feel inspired in a cookie cutter hotel room when you've been on the road so much
Just as the C300 mkii out performs the C500 in some ways. I think Canon's lineup is less linear than other companies and they are probably doing this for intentional, interior reasons that they don't publicize.
In any event, every Canon C-series seems to win because of its effortlessly beautiful images and usability more than its specs.
Looks cool. But why does every Sound Devices product sound like it was named by the same old white guy on his way back from lunch
I could watch Paris, Texas 1,000,000 times.

Great article. I'm a Chicago based doc filmmaker and was in LA this weekend having a discussion with a friend who is very much going the traditional DP route. His perspective is based around Arri cameras and mine is based around smaller cameras, and I realized during the conversation that we are simply working in different but equal approaches to filmmaking. My priority is always making people feel comfortable, the value that it brings is that it gives this effect of going into a world you don't often get to see in films, very personal and almost voyeuristic, and that is always appealing to me. His priority is delivering the most polished, cinematic images possible. Different tools for different jobs, and thank goodness for that because if we weren't comfortable with this idea then every film would look and feel exactly the same! Diversity is beautiful
