When you watch movies today, it’s probably a good idea to thank the classic 16mm camera for your theatrical entertainment because some of Hollywood’s greats began following their dream with this iconic film camera. Today’s students and indie filmmakers can still enjoy the feel of the classic camera while enjoying the luxury and convenience of digital at the same time.
When you first see the D16 Cinema Camera, it’s easy to think you’re looking at an old-school film camera but a quick glance at the controls on the top will reveal how modern this retro-looking camera really is.
Designed to offer the best of both worlds, the D16 fits comfortably in the hands, emulating the feel of a traditional 16mm film camera, while also providing all the shooting positions and mounting options of a professional digital cinema camera.
Becoming the next Lucas or Spielberg isn’t a journey to undertake with light pockets, and to prove the point, the D16 will cost you $3,299.99, but dedicated filmmakers will consider it a mere drop in the bucket when compared to the feeling of holding this classic beauty in their hands.
