I think it's more concerning that the numbers were already declining before the pandemic. From 100 in 2013 to 32 in 2019, before we knew Covid was coming, feels like the bigger story here.
I've never seen anything shot digitally that looked like 2-perf 35mm or 16mm, or vice versa.
The C200 is not the best option for a lot of uses because it doesn't have an intermediate codec. There's too big a gap between 8-bit MP4 and full-blown 7gb/min RAW. Any camera in this price range that offers a decent 10-bit, All-I, non-RAW shooting option is almost automatically more versatile.
Those are my thoughts. This is basically a C100 Mark III in disguise, and I think that's an attractive option.
The problem with Nolan is that he's perfectly capable of making good, and even great films. Inception, The Dark Knight, The Prestige and Memento weren't flukes.
However, at this point he's so surrounded by yes-men that his bad ideas on aspects he doesn't really understand, especially sound mixing, get pushed through even though SOMEONE at the studio should be reviewing this stuff and saying "Hey, Chris, I can't understand a damn word of this dialogue." He needs to be reined in a bit.
To give credit where it's due, all the theaters around me are doing as much as they can to minimize risk while staying open. However, I simply don't trust other moviegoers to actually abide by the rules. These are the same people who talk and text during movies despite the giant message on the screen asking them not to; am I meant to believe they'll all keep their masks on for 2-3 hours, in the dark where nobody else can see? All it takes is one fool breathing on me to negate all the precautions in place.
