: Camera specifications: how important are they for an audience? Författare: Gustav (English)
This BA-thesis investigates if the aspects dynamic range, color reproduction and resolution have any effects on how an audience experiences the quality of video/moving images. Today, with fast evolving technology, camera manufacturers have to keep producing new cameras to keep up with their competitors. This saturates the market and makes it harder for filmmakers not knowledgeable about how a camera works and what’s important. In our experience, filmmakers and camera manufacturers focus more on the technical specifications of cameras than what the production actually needs. To answer our question about the three camera aspects, we have conducted two different kinds of studies. The first one is objective, free of opinions and contains only data on how four different cameras compare with one another. After that, we compare the data from this study with a public survey where we show an audience four movies that might appear exactly the same but are filmed with different cameras, the same cameras as in the objective tests.
What we discovered is that dynamic range, color reproduction and resolution have little to no effect on how the audience experiences the video/moving images. The aspect that had the most effect on the audience was color, but reproduction accuracy was not the important factor and fell out of the scope of our study.
