On my first short, I paid for a DP.

I did it all wrong. I wasn't assertive enough and did not know what I was really do. He shot it at 30 fps and I deferred too much of the vision to him. I was more of a producer because I was conscience of time since I was paying hourly. $75/hour!!! So, I relied on him. However, for my next and last short, I will DP it (haha :/) because I've been studying how to bring my vision to life and convey what I want to a cinematographer.

So, finally, the answer... it's circumstantial. Plus, a vision go as far as the budget.
