Fuji colors are adorable and, as often ignored, its highlight roll off as well. So pleasing! If they just made a camcorder, I‘d buy it in a second.

I don't fully agree. While at the end of the day it's always the directors decision, this essay refers mainly to camera work. It's the DoPs task to translate the story into visuals, framing, lens- and angle choices to support the directors vision and not only to "light it to produce atmosphere". The director should have the capacity to mainly focus on characters, emotion, dialogue and staging. This essay highly underestimates the meaning of a greaet DoP. Some directors don't even think in pictures at all.
