Why not? It's a reboot not a remake.
If I wanted to shoot people with a weapon, I would use my gun. Red is getting a little too macho for my taste. It's camera for god's sake. Does it come with a tape measure?
This sounds great! As far as I know, I own the only Digital Bolex in Colorado and I would love to rent it, knowing that it would be properly insured.
When Digital Bolex releases their m43 mount these may prove to be an even safer investment. Think what you want about that camera but the more cameras using m43 mount, the easier it will be to sell these if you decide you aren't happy with them or move to a different camera system.
I see where he is coming from with the "spirit place." Yeah you can make digital look like film with plugins but film is magic. If it were not prohibitively expensive, I think a lot of people would still be shooting film. Making a film on film is like woodworking or sculpting. You are shaping and changing a physical object. The feeling of connectedness with your medium and how that can inspire and influence your creative process is what he's getting at.
It's a workflow conspiracy!
