That's not quite true, I don't think. I'm no expert but "prosumer" cameras have come a long way in the last 10 years. Here's the actual quote from Deming/Indiewire
“David went digital before anybody, at least in his mind, and he shot ‘Inland Empire’ [the one project in which Lynch served as his own DP] with a digital camera. He and I would disagree on the quality of [that camera], but he became very enamored with becoming a small self-contained unit and the sort of do-it-yourself situation,” said Deming. “And he was still very much interested in that type of set-up for this.”
The problem is that with the amount of special effects required for the new season of “Twin Peaks,” smaller, less expensive DSLR cameras have a “rolling shudder” and don’t supply a constant frame, which makes it extremely difficult for visual effects artists.
Deming doesn't name a specific camera, but I think what I said above is true of so-called DSLRs. I'd love to hear from someone more informed on the technical aspects of this how they interpret the comment/how different the show would have looked if they had indeed used them.
