EX-1 and "district 9"

Dont know if its been posted yet, but just saw this article. looks like the EX-1 was used to shoot portions of "District 9". The rest of the movie was shot on RED.

Yes, it was used for the opening and closing faux doc type footage, and they deliberately made it look more like home movie video that good stuff. I don't think it's an adequate sample of what the EX can do, and does do, since they were deliberately seeking dumbed down footage for the effect they were after.
