As I am writing this I am watching "Mystery Men" on AMC HD on TV. This is a 1999 movie and was shot on 35mm film. And yet, there is absolutely no shallow DoF to speak about in it. No more than what you can get with an HV camera if you zoom in a bit, or from the EX1. Youtube has a number of clips from this (flopped but somewhat cultish) movie. And yet, it does feel like a movie and not like a home video.
