Is this camera really good for making independent films on the weekends ?
Asked by: Anonymous
The project dictates the tools. You could be Christopher Nolan and shoot Dunkirk in IMAX or be Steven Soderbergh and shoot your latest feature with an iPhone. That being said, I think an EVA-1 or a FS7 might be a better choice for you this weekend.
