Jean Luc Godard's Alphaville is another example. A science fiction city that looks remarkably like Paris.
You and Josh both make the same point as me. The cameraman makes the image more than the camera. The guys here can shoot exquisite footage on a good camera, or even a not so good camera. An idiot can never do that.
No 4K could be a deal breaker. And you're right, others, notably Sony have been here much sooner. It's a very expensive "entry" camera.
I've got the EOS-M Mk1 and I love it. The Sony e mount is better for vintage lenses, though.
The brain behind is more important than the camera. As is what is happening in shot.
With VR, you are no longer looking through the director's eyes. That is a massive difference.
4K has killed 3D in TV. You get the hyperrealism without the nonsense of glasses. Most TVs are too small for 3D to work well anyway.
