Wenders is one of a few European cinematographers to produce inCineAlta using a Sony 24P camcorder. The one-day shoot for The GroundBeneath Her Feet took place in Dublin, Ireland and included only a smallsupport team from Sony and Panavision.

"I worked with people from Sony and Panavision once I received thecamera and within a remarkably short timeframe, I was shooting complexscenes quite easily with it," said Wenders. "I was amazed at the quality ofdigital images produced using Sony’s HDW-F900 and how well it intercutwith the film footage shot on 35mm."

"The HDW-F900 camcorder’sability to emulate the ’film look’ is of vital importance to manycinematographers seeking to capitalise on the advantages of digitalacquisition but needing the look and feel of 35mm film," said Larry Thorpe,vice president of acquisition systems for Sony Electronics’ Broadcast andProfessional Company. "The excitement is growing in the industry asleading cinematographers and directors, such as Wim Wenders, avail ofthe opportunity to use the Sony 24P camcorder."
