Retrofit Syndrome

There never was a motion picture camera in the history of the world that remained untouched or unscathed by cinematographers and rental houses. Retrofit syndrome is rampant. Analog and digital. Every cinematographer has a different shooting style and way of thinking. Every camera assistant and operator has a different way of working. Some of the new digital cameras provide democratizing platforms that are affordable and could become ubiquitous tools doing things we haven’t even dreamed of yet. They will all certainly spark a tidal wave of additional aftermarket accessories. I can hear drill presses and CNC machines revving up worldwide.
