Watch another moonlight experiment using the more sensitive 1D MKIV here:
In 1975 Stanley Kubrick stunned the world by filming some incredible scenes in his film Barry Lyndon, lit only by candlelight. He used lenses by Zeiss developed for NASA for use in the Apollo moon landings.
Today, using a Canon 5D MK II and an EF50mm F1.0L lens, you can film under only moonlight. In this case, 30fps.
Apart from the various transcoding processes from getting it off the camera, edited and onto Vimeo, there has been no post processing. No colour grading, no noise reduction, it's pretty much straight off the camera. The brighter shots that you can see were absorbing light from the street lamps of a carpark about 50-100m away.
