The Cameras Used by the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers
  • From

    In advance of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Indiewire sent out brief questionnaires to all of the filmmakers (you can read their full answers in our Meet the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers Series). As part of the questionnaire, we asked which camera(s) they shot on.

    Their responses showed a wide variety of camera used – everything from drones to cellphones to the Swedish Ikonoskop, which is a digital camera meant to emulate the 16mm film look.

    The most popular choices across the board were the ARRI ALEXA and RED Epic, as well as various models of Canon and Sony cameras. Almost all of the filmmakers produced their films digitally – the only films that specified having shot on film were "Franny," "Transfatty" and "Tumbledown."

    We’ve arranged this master list alphabetically by camera – please note that some films used multiple cameras, so you’ll see a few repeats as you browse.

  • I dont know why this put the names of the movies continued on a single line, because all are separated in different lines.

    About the article, It is curious that even today with the variety of DSLR and mirrorless remains ample predominance of Canon, except for a movie with a Sony A7 and neither Panasonic or Samsung.

  • It is how formatting work, you need to add
    or just two spaces at the line end

    Best idea just to use list by putting "* " before each line
