Wow, I hadn't heard this before. One note on the lighting - the daylight interiors were heavily lit. The "all natural light" is a misconception that often gets repeated about this movie. I think I remember reading there were mini brutes (not sure what wattage) outside the windows, and the windows themselves were papered (as opposed to draped or gelled or clean). Obviously the exterior wides and the candle stuff was mostly natural. But even the candle scenes had reflectors in the ceiling to bounce the candle light back, and some of the candle scenes were augmented by small tungsten lights to bring up the fill in the room.
Irony would be Chloe Zhao making this comment. If anything, Zhao using his movies as a reference supports his point, making his comment the opposite of ironic.
It was shot digitally.
You're welcome! I also wasn't a fan of the BP-A60 battery sticking out so I'm using a BP-A30 that sits flush with the back of the camera body and allows the battery plate to slide right up to the body. The plate I'm using is from shape: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/855416-REG/SHAPE_CP33ANTON_mounti... but plenty of manufacturers make something similar. For the XLR-d-tap power cable, I would get something that doesn't have a right angle because it will probably block nearby ports or turn right directly into some other accessory.
You're welcome! It's the bright tangerine left field cage. There are a lot of reviews of it floating around online so I won't go into all the details, but it's great. You may not need the side brackets. They're nice to have but not necessary. The mattebox is a bright tangerine misfit which is useful for clamping directly onto the lens via stepup rings.
Interesting list...included GoPro Hero but not C300 mark iii?
