DOCUMENTARY CINEMATOGRAPHY NOW

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 8th IN THE AFTRS THEATRE
camera_dreaming1000b
Everyone wants a “dream camera” – the one camera that will do everything, slow motion, 
low light, big sensor, stills, interchangeable lenses, great colour, 4K on board, 
light weight, batteries that last for days, brilliant to hand hold, and cheap. 
Many cameras now in use have a lot of these features and they range in price from 
ultra low budget to tens of thousands of dollars. Deployed skilfully, all of them 
can produce great images that serve the story being told.

SO HOW DO YOU CHOOSE AMONG THEM? 
How does a given camera stack up once you take it out of the showroom?
Well, as always, that depends on you, your preferences and what you set out to do. 

OZDOX proudly presents
