“The best camera is the one you have with you” Chase Jarvis.
Stepping into the space once occupied by 8mm and 16mm film cameras, mobile (mainly smartphone) cameras can provide the easy-access, first-steps learning opportunity for aspiring filmmakers. They can also provide a liberating, low-cost alternative to elusive big budgets and big crews for more experienced filmmakers wanting to finally ge...t that “unproducable” pet script into production.
