Art Adams of DVInfo writes a brief history of colors as it related to the film stock of yesteryear, and what he has noticed about the images that come out of digital cameras today.
He writes, "When I started out in this business as a camera assistant every film stock had a signature. Companies had overall looks — Kodak was the 'warm' company, Fuji was the 'cool' company, etc. — but each stock had its own personality...Video cameras are very similar. Each company has a base look, and in some cases this look has evolved over time. I’ve been working with Sony on developing a new filmic look for the Sony F55 so I’ve spent a lot of time pondering color palettes and trying to figure out what it is that I like, or dislike, about various cameras over the years."
