Hello everyone,

I'm currently in the process of developing initial ideas for a dissertation I'll be writing later this year, and was wondering if anyone wanted to share some advice and potential topics to research into?  It has to be Cinematography-based as that's what I'm studying.

Thanks,
Jonny

Something that's been interesting to me is how cinema grade cameras are cheaper than ever. Maybe write about various releases of the digital age and how they've shaped the prices on the market today. How we went from an HD 4:4:4 camera costing a house to the RED One costing a used car. Could even throw in the impact the 2008 recession had on this progress.

 

Would love to read something like that.

A few thoughts:

 

Polarization - basics of light polarization, polarized reflections and polarizers (circular and linear) and how they work

 

De-bayering Algorithms - advantages and disadvantages of different de-bayering algorithms

 

Lossless compression - how raw compression works and how does it stay "lossless"

The continued use of analog film in the digital age. Not why, but how.
