So after shooting with Alexa one thing is really standing out. This is the most light sensitive professional camera I have ever worked with, I think that it may even surpass the MX Red's for low noise and clean image.
This is available window light- on a overcast day, the camera is rated at ASA 800, shot with an Arri 100mm Macro lens.
yeah anybody can shoot like that but my light source is a 60"x90" window 18.5 ft away (roughly 6 meters), this is what the set looked like, I only used the window light and a white fill card to light the shot.
the image here shows the camera setup from the shot in yesterday's blog post.
So now you can shoot in what can truly be called available light. That does not mean No light, just considerably less than you are used too. Yet that could become an issue with daylight outdoors shoots, where adding .9 ND might become the norm with a camera this sensitive.
As I write this the camera is setting on the table, and I am getting f5.6+ under office florescent lights and Alexa set to 1600 asa.
Back to the capture testing
here is Alexa with an Stwo OB1 onboard recorder set for dual link capture of a DCS Combi chart.
