Just watched "Hanna". Great ride, loved it. There's a steadicam sequence that begins with Eric Banna getting off a bus following him through the streets, through a bus station, across a street, down an escalator into a subway station, all the while noticing agents following him then cullminating into a badass fight sequence. Pretty incredible.
Jorge Widmer was one of the 3 steadicam operators on the show. Does anyone know who was the operator for this particular sequence? Great shot, flawless fluidity, consistant headroom, speed, energy. Well done all around.

Most likely Peter Robertson, Joe Wright used him previously for that famous atonement shot, so it's highly likely it was him on this one as well for the long one take shot.

There was a good article about Hanna in the April issue of the ASC Magazine, including a description of the shot in question. Here is a link to the article:

Great read, really interesting as well to hear how he lit the film, definitely one of the best shot films this year, it looked absolutely stunning and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Just watched Hanna. Incredible shot. I'm wondering how it was so well choreographed to the point where they were able to do it all in one take and make that fight look so damn good. This is the highest quality I could find, but it's missing the first minute:

 

 

 

To operators/cinematographers: Did they replace the bulbs in the tunnel to match outdoor lighting? I'm wondering how a shot like this is exposed so that everything is so perfectly consistent.

That's really cool. I'm still having trouble finding the spots where they do the pulls. Also wondering how they made the knife look so good.

I think it's a real challenge to make fight scenes work in a oner. Particularly hand to hand combat. In my (extremely humble) opinion, that fight scene would have looked a lot more credible with cuts in it. Great operating though.
