No, but what they *are* doing is giving colorists a significant share of
their daily rate for saving the footage (should that be necessary).

DPs have been issued a booklet of rebate certificates expressly for this
purpose. Be sure to ask for yours the next time some three or four thousand
dollar a day hack brings in some over/under/poorly exposed piece of crap
and then wants to know what's wrong with your equipment to make it look
like that before correction.
