It was shot on Arri Alexa, Zeiss Ultra Prime Lenses. It looks better then the RED. You see, I agree with the DP's choice shooting it on digital. The film is stupid. It would not make any sense to shoot it on film. Films that are rich in story like City Of God, Gladiator etc... should be shot on film and not digital. You want that sense of beauty and artistic freedom to work to your advantage.

If you have the money, of course rent a better camera. First hire better talent, sound, production design, and lighting, which are far more significant factors.
Anyone who's intimidated by dSLRs to the point of ignoring their remarkable image quality for the money is uncomfortable enough with his own craft that he has to look to the expensive cameras he's using for validation.

Of course these aren't issues that are as relevant to guys like Wally Pfister with the budgets they have to shoot with, but even still, there is apparently never enough money in filmmaking and there almost always seems to be compromise.
But these inspiration studio guys are absolutely hilarious either way and produce fantastic marketing videos. That DSLR thing is great proof of their humor and it is obviously meant as a joke when they have a 7D stocked in their rental house.
