Variety's David Heuring reports on the recent trend of small cameras doing big work on productions like Mission: Impossible--Rogue Nation, The Green Inferno, and more.

He writes, "Cinematographers say the changes are driven by larger sensors, better image processing, and in some cases the ability to use cinema-quality lenses. Digital intermediate techniques in post-production help smooth over any differences. Cameras on the lower end of the quality spectrum can suffice for kinetic action shots that last mere fractions of a second on the big screen."
