Well... given the post about DR by monitor path, I guess it is time to post our tests. We shot the Alexa and EPIC Tattoo prototype "Presto" a couple of days ago. Here are our results. We acknowledge that everyone has their favorite way of testing... ours uses the DSC charts. We also acknowledge that we have EPICs and no one else does. Oh, well...
1st, Dynamic Range. Congratulations to Arri on a job well done with Alexa. It now looks like there are two cameras that make great film alternative options.
Here is the Dynamic Range test we did using the DSC chart. I'd give a slight advantage to the Alexa which was designed with a larger pixel than Epic.
Now resolution. This shouldn't come as a surprise.
And the resolution charts...
We believe that everyone should do their own testing. One thing to remember is that RED believes that resolution matters.
