Cinematographer Linus Sandgren recently spoke to Screen Daily about his latest film. First Man is about Neil Armstrong and the race to put man on the moon. It was filmed using a mixture of Super 16 mm film with telephoto lenses, 35mm and Imax.

The article briefly mentions that Sandgren’s next project, Bond 25, will shoot digitally. The article says:

Sandgren is now preparing to work with Cary Joji Fukunaga on Eon and MGM’s Bond 25, shooting on digital for only the second time in the franchise’s history after Skyfall and the opening sequence of Spectre.

Of course it’s not the first Bond film to use digital cameras. The first was Skyfall (2012). Cinematographer Roger Deakins decided to follow the digital route and his work was widely praised.

With a change of cinematographer for SPECTRE (2015) Bond returned to film throughout all but the spectacular pre-title sequence.
