Emma Watson’s Camera Woes On Harry Potter Set
On the last day of filming Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows, Emma Watson attempted to snap a lasting memory with a camera and lamented her woes in a recent Empire Magazine interview.
Watson declared: “I wandered into a second-hand camera shop, and this very nice gentleman persuaded me I needed an old black-and-white camera. I realized I hadn’t taken any photos of the last 10 years, so this time I’ve been bugging everyone [on the set of Deathly Hollows]….takes me about 10 minutes to take one because I have to work out the aperture, the shutter speed, the focus and everything. But the girl who was helping me develop the film accidentally turned on the lights in the dark room and wiped everything. I couldn’t talk for about three days. I was devastated. Forget the arty cool effect of using old film cameras. It’s absolute bulls**t. Digital cameras and Photoshop are the way to go.”
Is Watson correct? Are digital cameras better than film?
