If you’re holding a camera that makes you a camera operator. DoP means you’re running three departments on set - camera, grip and electric. It’s like a writer saying they the creative Director because they wrote something. DoP is a manager. Most DoPs I work with don’t touch the camera they sit in a chair next to the director tweaking looks with the DIT.
