In an age where cell phones and still cameras can record HD video it is more important then ever that the person behind the lens have the experience and knowledge to recommend the proper tool for the job. Anyone can record HD content, but it doesn’t mean they should. I work as a director of photography (cinematographer). My job is to make the directors job easier by making sure my departments and all of the people involved are working as one great unit. I believe that a DP needs to be ego & attitude free and a team leader able to work great under pressure.
