Yeah sure. You probably know how to use the Epic too.
you think i dont know canon c100 c500 and sony cameras,they are not in same line with red and arri believe me.
I know, and I didn't put C500 and fs700 in the same category. I didn't mention the C100, as it's a 2K camera.
Alexa will record 4k with upgrade dont worry camera or sensor doesnt need to be real 4k for this.
No it won't.
There will be no 4K from Arri before they release a new 4K camera.
Arri has said so themselves.
there is already 4k prores support on quicktime.
So what? You can't use 4K prores on Alexa files unless you up-convert the material first.
so i think you are crazy for K's too but believe its not about resolution.dynamic range color space etc. more important then res!!
Yeah, let's mediately dilute the idea that you need a 4K sensor (or preferably higher) camera for shooting 4K.
and alexa is far ahead better than Epic even with 2k.
Yeah, let me get dragged into an endless discussion with a Alexa fanboy about which is the best camera.
Sell your Epic (if you really own one) and buy a Alexa if it such a wonder camera.
you cant tell difference between 2k 4k even on big cinema screen from usual distance.im on the phone now gotta find that tech. research about this in soon and post it here..
Had you followed this thread and other threads on AVS you would have seen this have been disputed a long time ago. We are past that discussion looong ago.
Only Alexa fanboys and DP's shooting with it still claim "2K is good enough" to defend their choice (or stupidity).
Let's cheer Arri on for their effort in not pushing image quality forward
My only point of my former post was to correct you on the notion that Alexa isn't a 4K camera, not to end up in a stupid discussion on the merit of general camera technology.
