Is there a credit for Panavision at the end?

Because I was told that in the making-of on the dvd you can apparently see an Arricam ST with a Master Prime on the camera.

I can remember from the making of that all the cameras were Arri and i cant remember seeing any pananvision logos, then again i watched it late at night with a slow burner so i could be wrong. I was expecting a 'softer' lens than a master prime, i know they did some serious DI work though, so that could be the effect that I'm noticing.

I don't think they shot the whole film on Master Primes, since according to imdb the shoot started in september 2004 and by that time there were only protoypes of these lenses around. So my guess is that they shot on Ultra Primes and got some Master Primes in so they could be used in a real shooting situation.

I don't know about you. But I found the DI on Flightplan to be poor.

Tonally I quite liked the DI (heavy on the lime- reflections of panic room?), but it was quite graphical in it's treatment and so I can see how it could irritate. There also seemed to be a lot of grain reduction, also some selective defocusing and a fair amount of power windows work. It was close to that point where the DI becomes more post than timing, if that makes sense.
