R.I.P., the movie camera: 1888-2011

With some major manufacturers ceasing production of film cameras, it seems like the last links to cinema presentation as we knew it are quickly disappearing. Salon looks back on how this day came to be and what this new era means for us.

I used to run a movie theatre and enjoyed working with 35mm film prints. Even operated the equipment myself when the odd relief projectionist would screw things up (seldom happened, but it did on more than one occasion). I no longer work in the business but much prefer viewing a digital presentation to a sloppy film display. Here’s why: the picture is always in focus from edge to edge, the image is rock steady, sound reproduction is top notch, dust, scratches and missing frames due to splices are a thing of the past, it’s never out of frame and pictures are always in their correct aspect ratios. What’s not to like?
