George Lucas Talks Digital Cameras

by malducin

A short interview with George Lucas has appeared on the Hollywood Reporter which mainly discusses how the Sony/Panavision Digital Camera was used in Episode 2 and its implications for filmaking.

This also nicely complements the video feature that appeared a few days earlier on the official Star Wars site. Here are the links:

Still as suspected, in the visual effects newsgroup, discusions abound on the use of traditional film cameras for the Episode 2 film shoot.
