To a certain (limited) extent that reinforces the comment in my recent post when I wrote that I use my S20 smartphone nowadays as it is always with me.

What a great video, Sidd! I want to watch it again when I have more time to study it.

You DO need good lighting equipment, good lenses and a good camera of some kind. But there's no substitute for great vision.

Something about the heft and look of my old Panasonic miniDV camera made me really feel like I was shooting a movie :) My phone or Canon Vixia doesn't quite feel the same.

On the plus side I do like creating video in places where people do not pay attention because it is a phone.

I get that, I do that with my small zone focus cameras for street photography.
