    Awesome work Alex!

    Most of my shots were done with the first gen Rokinon Cine (own).
    I had a few projects where they used Rokinon Xeens, CP2s, Canon Photo, and RED.
    I had a chance to use the Sony Altas but that project fell through.

    Are folks still leaning towards Cine pro glass as opposed to the lower end Rokinos/Sigmas?
    I'm considering upgrading lenses and would like to hear others take on this.

    Scarlet-X #04147 Here! Bought 2 years ago from a buddy of mine who left the industry. Got it for a solid deal at the time as a package. My friends have DSMC2 and Alexa rigs and sometimes it discouraging to "keep up", but frame rates aside this things does pretty much all I need it to and the fan isn't an issue like it is on my buddies old Helium. I've shot 3 features + 2nd unit on another in that time, plus a handful of other projects. Trying to encourage people it's still a camera worth using. Difficult to rent in my market, but I'm trying to make it work for me! I do love the skin tones I can get out of it and IPP2 doing it's magic as well.

    Wow, man, those images are great. There is nothing wrong with this old sensor, that's for sure. :-)
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    We use mine quite a bit alongside the BMP4K at work. As long its not low light, the MX will surprise you with how well it holds up even against some of the newer cameras!

    I had a chance to work along side an EPIC MX with my Scarlet two months ago.
    It held well in most cases.
    Just love the HFR in the EPIC so maybe someday that will be my next purchase :)

    Wish I was shooting more with mine. Biggest bummer is that I don't want to send mine in and spend $500 to get the CMOS battery replaced, but I'm also too nervous to do it myself. We use it at work as an SDI feed and to generate R3Ds for testing, but its always rigged and ready to go!
