OMG this was a big suprise. it looks like digital cameras are becoming good enough http://www.slashfilm.com/roger-deakins-digital-35mm-im-ill-film/ he technology and how its changing and the possibilities that are coming. This film Now, Im shooting on a digitalcamera. First film Ive shot digitally, because, frankly, its the first camera Ive worked with that Ive felt gives me something I cant get on film. Whether Ill shoot on film again, I dont know. [Shooting on Digital] gives me a lot more options. Its got more latitude, its got better color rendition. Its faster. I can immediately see what Im recording. I can time that image on set with a color-calibrated monitor. That coloring goes through the whole system, so its tied with the meta-data of the image. So that goes through the whole post-production chain, so its not a case of being in a lab and having to sit and then time a shot on a shot-by-shot because this has already got a control on it thats set the timing for the shot, you know? Am I nostalgic for film? I mean, its had a good run, hasnt it? You know, Im not nostalgic for a technology. Im nostalgic for the kind of films that used to be made that arent being made now. The grain is unique, but on this film Now that Im doing, Im probably going to add grain for certain sequences where I feel that they would benefit having grain, just the look and the texture of it. Yeah, there are certain things about film emulsion that I love, and for certain projects, absolutely. I would certainly consider shooting film again, but you can add grain to a digital image. And, frankly, its not the technology that makes the great movies. I mean, if you went back to see Citizen Kane and you looked at it on a big screen and you looked at the quality of the image, I mean, frankly, some of it is not very well, goods not the right word, because technically its not as sharp. Some of it is very grainy. The lens quality is not as good as modern lenses. But [Laughs] its still a better film than ninety-nine percent of what are made today. So, you know, its not just about technique and equipment.
