That's all? That seems like a waste of money.

A lot of the "nature" shots, with available light.

Max knows much about this, I think. I know he likes Malick very much. Maybe he can be of some help...

A selection of what they termed "hyperreal" shots, often with the intention of accentuating an epiphany or unspoken moment, were shot in 65mm.

I haven't seen a direct quote from anybody involved in the production regarding which scenes/specific shots used the 65mm format and I believe that I've read every technical article on this film. I may be wrong, but I think Lubezki just talked about "enhanced" moments between Smith and Pocahontas on the AC article, or something like that. Nothing about the ships or other sequences.

Anyway, I saw the film twice at the theater and I couldn't discern any large-format shot. It was very, very sharp, but nothing looked like real 65mm footage.

Same here. I worked with the script suerpvisor for the English scenes some months ago but forgot to ask her about the 65mm.

I was looking for info on which scenes were shot in 65mm and came across this on in70mm.com.
Funny stuff...

My source is the post house that actually worked on those sequences.

The AC article confirms that a very small percentage of the film was shot on 65mm, although you are right that Lubezki originally was looking at using it for everything.

Really? Can you use a steadycam or shoot handheld with a 65mm camera? I thought those weighed too much to be carried around just like that... (Malick and Lubezki agreed not to use tripods or cranes)

Panavision have a lightweight 65mm camera which can be used for steadicam and handheld. As far as I know it is an MOS camera though.

The old Making of... short has a couple of shots of them being hand held. They look so compact.
I tried one on once, a bit on the heavy side but not as awkward as an NPR.

Can you find the reflection of S.Kubrick using one in '2001'?

Apparently all the dialogue in 'The New World' was post-synced because Malick was giving directions during takes.
