    Very frustrating for me, since I LOVE my Helium. But, that speaks volumes. opinions aside, facts are facts.
    Must be nice working with Warner Brothers. Wish I could get clients like that.

    Just to play along... I'd say the shots of the crazy guy in the truck and the shots in the cave. Did I win?

    I see your point though... it is quite an achievement that a 8K camera from 2016 manages to seamlessly intercut with a 2.8K cam from 2010 - on a 1080p delivery. I see the light now.

    I'm gonna have to think about this a for a while.


    why don't u take ur Helium 8K and compare it against Alexa65 @ 6.5K... u still got 1.5Ks more... I know the result.


    oh yeah.... why did u shoot the commercial on 6x Arris if ur Helium is the better cam ?

    Its posted in native alexa FF raw resolution and then 4k Upres delivery for the cinemas world wide.
    Then they pushed for 4k delivery trough social spreed and the 60 second coutdowns for Tv was 1080p.

    The vimeo link is 4k.

    The DP like arri, so does the AC´s and I will not argue with that. I got helium because I usually need higher res canvases for the VFX plates, I would not swap it for a mini even though it would save me a bit of money-
    Even if they would be available I could not fly around with a arri 65 or such, simply to big and heavy. But if it was even half possible to gather 3 Alexa 65 for a shoot I think many would do so but thats not really feasible for most.

    So no I don't have a Alexa 65 to compare to, very few does, you can not buy such camera and you can hardly rent it.

    And com on, The minis are not really from 2010.

    Shooting style and other artistic choices, like if its film noir or not is not really whats discussed here is it.

    Caves where all alexa. But some random slow shots of the mopeds, and some of the kids in the quarry where helium. And the first shot, but the first shot does not really count as it´s like 90% CG. Then cleanup plates for the above shots of the quarry and the ferries.

    It's funny that Mike N "Pushes your buttons" and WE get to see some of the wonderful work you have done. Stuff you post almost makes one "Ache" at the sheer effort and number of very long hours to pull that all together even for the shortest sequence.

    It's cool I'm becoming a bit of secret fan of the Syndicate, and also cool to learn that some of the things I really like or have visually stuck in my mind I later learn were done by "You guys"...

    The David Bowie BLACKSTAR sequences are really memorable and unusual for sure ... Especially as the theme demands light that is somehow "Black"... From literally a "Black" "Star", (as the song goes),

    Wonderful technical work especially with the Milo platform [Precision IS key (damn straight!)], and your CG "Plates"/backgrounds for Creating a Factory are really superb.

    I was hoping it was going to be a "Trick" question, where you go "HA... It was all shot on Helium".

    "S35". When you send your camera in with it for the upgrade they upgrade it to the VV mount.

    Are there plans for a titanium or comparable material EF lens mount for VV?
