    With Monstro, Panavision DXL2 and now the new ALEXA LF, the age of high end Full Frame cinema capture is really upon us.

    While it is going to be hilarious watching a lot of backtracking from a lot of people about the worthlessness of 4K, these are going to do very well and as soon as there is a Mini version of it that will absolutely smash it.

    Considering the fact that a lot of Netflix and BBC shows had moved to RED and Panasonic VariCam LT for "proper" 4K acquisition, this should have a large impact on that segment of the industry.

    So no backward upgrade options for SXT owners? I wonder why Arri chose a new LPL mount design? Their sensor at 36mm is not as wide as the Monstro yet the Monstro can use a PL mount ? Not cheap but it was never going to be

    I sort of suspected that they were never going to do 4K in S35. They can't, because the Alexa look, such as it is, is tied to the size of the photosite. I got that suspicion partly because a) someone on this site, sometime last year, said something to that effect; and b) the Alexa 65.

    And while on paper, nobody is going to snub VistaVision, there are many good reasons to shoot S35, and RED has everyone beat in that segment. Also, Helium is going to give you great output with S16 lenses. It's nominally 3.5K RAW, which is a net resolution of 2.8K, which is slightly more than the Alexa's open gate S35 output.

    Anyway, while ARRI discovers 4K, RED already has IMAX covered.

    BTW I bet those ARRI lenses will be really good. T1.8 is way faster than you'd need, and I wonder if they should have gone for a smaller size over a wider aperture.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Don't bring a 4K sensor to an 8K fight.
