  1. Since we are still actively researching technical roles, we consider this chart to be in beta mode. The table includes data for movies in The Numbers database. While we make every effort to collect all available data, there are inevitably omissions and errors. Please help us by sending corrections to corrections@the-numbers.com.
  2. The figures represent the total amount of domestic (US+Canada) revenue generated by all the movies a person has contributed to as a Cinematographer over their careers. This chart is not adjusted for inflation.
