New digital camera used in some scenes on SPECTRE

Arri Alexa

After the rich visual look of Skyfall, shot digitally by Roger Deakins on the ARRI Alexa, it was slightly surprising to learn that SPECTRE would be returning to 35 mm film under cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema.

However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, some portions of SPECTRE were shot using the Alexa 65, a larger format version of the Alexa with a resolution of 6K. Presumably the scenes in which it has been used heavily rely on digital effects and so won’t suffer the quality degradation that comes from transferring the film.
