The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just announced the nominations for the 2023 Oscars, so it&s time to take a closer look at the films selected for the film industry&s most prestigious award, specifically the two categories "Best Cinematography" and "Best Picture": which camera were they shot with? Who is responsible for their specific look? And finally: which cameras were used particularly often?
As in previous years (here the cameras of last year&s nominations the result is clear - ARRI leads again this year by a wide margin. Thus, 9 x ARRI cameras were used for the 12 (three of them in both categories) nominated films - four times the digital 65mm Cinema Camera ARRI Alexa 65 with its huge sensor, 2 x also in combination with the ARRI Alexa (Mini) LF, 3 x the ARRI Alexa (Mini) LF.
Second place with two entries each is shared by Sony with the CineAlta Venice (IMAX) and Panavision with the analogue Millennium DXL2 (two of the 13 films were shot on analogue film). RED cameras (the Gemini 5K and the Helium 8K) were only used on one film (together with the ARRI Alexa LF). Here is our Dynamic Shootout: the ARRI Alexa Mini LF vs. Sony VENICE 2 with 8K.
