No Film School had a chance to talk to a plethora of different directors and cinematographers at the Sundance Film Festival, and the following is a compilation of cameras that they used, and why! I try to make it as easy as possible, since it's a lighter camera, because if you're doing a lot of it it's a strain on the operator, so we left it on the rig all the time. Shooting as fast as we could was one of the primary tasks of this movie. Shooting RAW allowed me to do some pretty cool stuff in post. There was this awesome nostalgia that remained, but there was a new sort of slicker edge to it.

You can even film and edit on your iPhone. Your choice of camera will depend on how much you can afford, and what kind of movies you want to make. The new stabilised Osmo Pocket is an affordable, very compact alternative to basic camcorders and phones. Using a separate microphone will make a big difference. Wireless lavs are great if you can afford them.
