  1. Watched Quantum of Solace (2008) again yesterday and was reminded of what great action film editing and cinematography looks like. Shot on 35mm film on Arricams and Arriflex cameras with Zeiss lenses as IMDB says. Interesting (oh no here I go again, I'm so boring and predictable) that I thought something was 'off' and sh*t-looking about Skyfall (2012). I wrongly assumed all Bond films were shot on film so I never looked at the Tech Specs as I always do for fun.....and it so happens SKYFALL was shot digital. Then the next Bond film Spectre (2015) - directed by Sam Mendes again and shot by Hoytema with film plus some digital. No Time to Die is back to 100% film Arriflex 235, Panavision C-, E- and G-Series Lenses Arriflex 435 ES, Panavision C-, E- and G-Series Lenses Arriflex 765, Zeiss 765 Lenses (some shots) IMAX MKIV, Hasselblad Lenses (some scenes) IMAX MSM 9802, Hasselblad Lenses (some scenes) Panavision Panaflex Millennium XL2, Panavision G-Series Lenses Panavision Panaflex System 65 Studio, Panavision Sphero 65 Lenses (some shots)
  2. Watched it again a week ago and really enjoyed the cinematography. Of course the stand out shot is the plane landing and its worthy of all the praise it gets as so effective to the story.....other than that I can't add anything significant to the thread haha. As a European and a huge fan of, in particular, British cinema, well its just another classic spy story film not to miss...
  3. I cant see how this is possible at all.....f2.8 compared to f16 is a huge difference in everything that a lens gives us.....obv. Im thinking of film photography as my main experience....could you explain....
  4. Thanks for the images Maxine. How does what you have done work. You have the original battery and what looks like a mount for another type on top....what have you done or what is the engineering part of what you have done that makes the battery work? I am ZERO electrical engineering-minded haha
  5. The original is trully special in terms of the exterior cinematography.....not so much the obvious shots in the interior sets.....the version on Netflix is supreme.....
  6. you all REALLY have to rewatch this film as per the version on Netflix....edge to edge 70mm greatness.....the quality/look of the lenses and film stock are spectacular to my eyes.....has that Sergio Leone sweaty face can see each pore close up kind vibe as well haha
  7. going to have to be something special to beat the original esp now we have the remastered version that looks incredible.....it will be hard to beat the original opening sequence......the aerial shot over New York and the feeling of expanse and solitude at the same time of the way they did the sound for it
  8. any updates @Jarin Blaschke on the filming/film...anything you can talk about? hope it went well.....
  9. so I said it back in December 2020 hahah.....won 2 Oscars after all....and a few nominations too......now perhaps you will all watch it haha
  10. looks like a Captain Scarlet or Thunderbirds character to me
