Arri Amira - shooting features
Any DOPs out there? I've got a question for anyone who's managed to get their hands on the Arri Amira. It seems like it's getting a big push for docos and promos, but why is no one talking about using this camera for shooting independent features? Seems like it's a no brainer if you're not going the ArriRAW route. Same 2k ProRes image quality as the Alexa but with smaller, more ergonomic form-factor (perfect for hand-held), in-built ND filters, better battery life, higher frame rates and cheaper to hire so you can have multiple bodies. Why would you now use the Alexa if you're not shooting ArriRAW or anamorphic? Am I missing something? Really appreciate an answer if anyone can help. Thanks in advance.
