Anybody know which lenses and stocks Ross Emery used on 'The Cave'?

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.

For "land-shots" Kodak Vision2 500T 5218 and Vision 500T 5279 were used with Zeiss Ultra Primes. Underwater shots are HD. It did went through D.I.

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

Ross wanted to create realistc atmospher for the cave..... And take it from a caver* (me), Caves are dark....
