As I understand from Marcs test, the Alexa is "real" 800asa, were as Mysterium-X "just" squeezes all it can out of 320asa - ist this correct? When I did a test between the 5D and RED one, the 5D was clearly picking up information at least 1.5 stops sooner than the RED one pushed to 2000asa. So I would think a "real" 800asa sensor will always record more information on the dark end - am I getting this right?
i will stay on red.
but i know from a lot of other DPīs and operators here : they wait. now.
the big advantage of arri here in europe will be the local servicestations.
red service is great. i think the best i ever had. but to get it, for europeans itīs often more complicated as to send it to arri.
sending red equipment from here to USA or even england is always accompanied with a small or even bigger stomachache... as i remember my strange experience with a red lense and memphis custom...
so - this is for sure an future advantage for the new arris when i listen to the people who think about this topic.
"Social Network" by David Fincher the first feature shot on RED ONE M-X upgraded
will enter in the movie history as a film that "killed" acquisition on celluloid in 2010.
If memory serves, I believe the original wager between Tom and Stephen was whether or not the MAJORITY of films (Features?) would be shot digitally in 2010, not that film would be "dead'. There needs to be at least a 51-49% difference, and that's it really.
i did not say it is a problem, except the problem i had with memphis custom.
thatīs not the rule. sure.
i only said that i know lot of people that prefer a "local" and close service.
i just quote what i heard.
and this will be an advantage for arri in our area.
that does not mean they have better camera or service.
Personally I'm more than happy that Arri is back on track.
Interesting that a manufacturer that is just about 3 years on the market has the power to make people feel sorry for a company like Arri.
But this seems to be over now.
Some weeks ago I put an Alexa moc-up on my shoulder and found her despite the boxy design very comfortable.
In this regard she is more advanced than the RedOne. But I have high hopes for Epic if we talk about ergonomics.
Arri will have a fair amount of market shares (especially in the rental market), so will Red. Great that these two companies are in a close but respectful competition. Love to see one day an Alexa with RPPs... we already have that the other way.
