One of those directors with an unmistakable signature, but one that wasn't expressed through particular art direction or atmosphere or repeated subject matter. He just had a perfectly honed sense of cinematic rhythm; of when to be fun, when to be weird, when to go big and when to go small.
Paul Thomas Anderson has often cited Demme as his favourite film director and a great inspiration. Many would be hard pressed to draw parallels between their works, but it's right there in that strange rhythm.
looks very beefy... both size and presumably weight...
Or the A9s
All valid points, so this is not to counter what you're saying, but Skyfall was shot in Arriraw for the most part, at a 2.8K resolution, and some scenes were shot in Open Gate 3.4K I believe.
I've lent out my C300 to a number of people who are used to shooting on DSLR's, and they get disappointing results, because their thinking is "lower ISO, better Image Quality". This is very much not true for the C-line. I never, ever go below 850, except on the very rare occasion I have an INTENTIONALLY dark scene with low contrast, where no highlights are close to clipping. It might seem counter-intuitive, but the low ISO settings are only for dark scenes, where you want to push your latitude into the shadows. Notice I say dark, and not "low-light", because the scene usually needs to be brighter to your eye than it looks on the monitor, and most of the image lying between 10-50 IRE on your waveform monitor.
Short answer: With an absolute ton of high level compositing work.
