It was a very good looking movie, I thought, for a guy with only a half dozen DP credits.
I sort of expected a lot of soft shots since nearly the whole film is dark, but it was sharp as a tack. Looks like it might be DI-free too.
I also got the feeling the exteriors were shot with a medium or high speed stock.

American Cinematographer had an article about The Cave in august ("Deep Trouble" - also available through their web archives).
