As a company specializing in digital cameras, we carefully watch the progress of the industry. This past year, two films shot largely on digital cameras were nominated for the Best Cinematography Oscar, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Slumdog Millionaire which actually won the Oscar. We are at a point where digital cinematography can be just as beautiful as one shot on film.
This started an argument here at dvDepot over what film has the best digital cinematography. We came up with this list of 11. They range across genres, styles and budgets, some of which dictated that digital cameras must be used. The most interesting question is if using digital cameras brings a style that’s important to the film. Let us know which of these are your favorite and why. Also let us know if we forgot any.
