It wouldn't be HDV, I presume.

35mm.

If you're thinking that something about is special that's in the camera, you'd be mistaking it for the style/talent of the colorist.

How about Heros ?

Okay. In that same vein, I watched Heros on Monday. In one car seen, shot from the interrior the car, they were shooting the face of a black kind against the background of the passenger side window. There was nothing in the window, as it had been blown out beyond recognition. Seemed to me that had to be a video camera. Anybody know.

For broadcast TV, choice of Panavision vs Arriflex is largely a choice of whether the DP likes the Panavision system better...not as much an image quality thing.

Also, Panavision is the largest single owner of Arriflex camera systems in the world, because they also offer Arris as rentals with Panavision mounts. Called a "Panavised Arri" or "Pan-Arri". When I worked on Rudy eons ago, my camera unit had an Arriflex 35-3 with Panavision lens mount, to match the A-camera Panaflex Gold.

Right. Sorry, didn't mean to come across short.

Smart money is on Panavision Platinum, Millenium, Arri LT, 535, etc.

35mm is used for an awful lot of stuff past a certain point. Some episodics like HD, but right now, DPs would rather shoot film. So they do.
