This is the forum for the course “Color as an Intrinsic Filmmaking Tool”. Feel free to post any questions you may have.
what are weaknesses of new cameras in capturing colors?(if there are ones of course.)
Well weaknesses are really going to be along the lines of dynamic range. The human eye can make out a large light range and only recently have cameras start being able to capture the dynamic range that we can see naturally.
Also there’s a gamut issue. Not all the colors we can see fall neatly into the RGB colorspace – though this isn’t a problem with cameras but a problem with colorspace in general.
What are the different color styles that are suitable for different genres of film? What thing should be kept in mind when color grading a film?

Just watch films of a genre and study their color choices. There’s no set rule that says comedies have to use a warm palette and thrillers have to use a cool palette – though often times that is the case.

Consistency – the feel and tone of a scene. Does it feel right – is that the atmosphere you want to convey.
