The camera was an Arriflex 16 SR2. The film used was 16mm. The film was black & white to keep costs down, and also because a colour image would have had a green tinge from the fluorescent lights. When picked up, the film was blown up to 35MM and matted to 1.85:1, which is aroundabouts what the image was composed for, so that it could be shown on reegular screens. The sound was also remixed.
If you're looking for a cheap camera to get started with, forget film and go digital. Keep your costs down and save your money for when you've had the practice. In fact, go to www.film-411.com, they'll help you out. There's a link at the top of the board.
