This is How You Geek Out on Cinematography

This is How You Geek Out on Cinematography | HDSLR | Scoop.it
If you're going to geek out on cinematography, this is the way to do it.

In the first five minutes of this video, there's more wisdom about 4K than

driven by black levels much more than brightness), not resolution.

From there they go on to discuss everything from distibution to lighting
to, of course, cameras.

Smart guys, good stuff.
