    I don't doubt this Björn. But there was something stupid easy about the Alexa Classic. My clients shot this project, and from a network's POV, where they have so many bottlenecks, the workflow is...

    Have to say, we've been editing a campaign shot on an Alexa Classic (which the DP I believe bought recently, in vein of this thread) and footage looks great.

    It's all 2K, but still looks as you'd...

    As others have said, Standard Primes and Otus Primes are very different. Almost apple and oranges.

    Standard Primes are amazing (basically the predecessors to Ultra Primes), but have a small image...

    I think his point was about size? A Super Speed 18mm is very small. He likes that, for how he works. The Zeiss full frame Supremes are also quite small, so I think that was part of the allure?

    But...

    I did want to speak to this. This idea you can easily correct a lot of distortion (which is relevant to the S35 vs FF discussion).

    That distortion is easy to fix is true in the stills world. Most...

    Yes but the design of an actual lens also has an affect on distortion. Meizler specifically mentions that the 35mm Supreme (a modern lens) has less distortion than an 18mm Super Speed (from the...

    It's actually not that far off. The equivalent to a 35mm on Vista in S35 is a 21mm.

    Love those tests.

    OK lets compare:

    Here is your 18mm Master Prime on S35:

    And here is the Zeiss 35mm Supreme on Vista (Alexa LF):...

    Right, optical design not-withstanding. That's the key point. In this scenario, Meizler was comparing shooting on an 18mm Super Speed (which optically has a lot of distortion) to shooting Vista on a...

    Yes formats have nothing todo with distortion. But focal length does.

    An 18mm prime at S35 has more distortion than a 35mm prime on Vista. It's just optics. It's one of the advantges of working on...

    Just gunna answer these quickly one by one. Not trying to be argumentative Jacek, but just want to correct some stuff.


    This isn't accurate anymore. Otus lenses represent a new generation of high...

    Phil, thank you. And this is what I was getting at before. Yes you can match formats easily, but not without compensating with iris. Meaning all formats at the same Tstop (say 2.8) are going to have...

    Exactly. Yedlin makes an amazing point that resolution doesn't matter - that people can't tell the difference, and ultimately pixel quality is what matters. This is true.

    However, having the extra...

    I actually found the Yedlin examples to be illuminating, in a different way.

    He makes a great point that you can match the background blur across all formats, if you adjust your F/T stop.

    I mean makes sense. Just be careful the sensor doesn't fail, as Arri won't cover it.

    As Domenic said:

    Master Primes are larger and faster, but only cover S35.

    Signatures are smaller and a smidge slower, but cover FF.

    My understanding too is that Master Primes still look more...

    I don't understand these posts. So you mean you don't like the footage you've seen on Youtube?

    Yes but sometimes you just want to use Tungsten lights. They have perfect IRE (100). They look amazing on skin. Or you're using Lekos, old school Lekos, and they're Tungsten. You can gel them sure,...

    Yes we set 800 as a baseline, but that's not set in stone. An Epic Dragon is noisy at 800 ISO, so we set it at 400 ISO. Also situations vary. If you are shooting Tungsten, you can sometimes get a...
