RedShark News' David Shapton writes about the pros and cons of the digital cinematography era.

He writes, "In a sense, we’re entering a post scarcity era, where there are enough cameras at all levels to suit absolutely any budget. Any financial one, that is. But there’s another budget, where there’s still scarcity. It’s time. Yes, in theory you can turn things around faster now. You don’t have to wait for film to develop. Editing can be faster. Except, that is, when you have a shooting ratio of fifteen to one, and every shot needs CGI elements. And then there’s grading. And multi-channel audio. And other stuff."
