RED Epic Helium or Alexa or Something Else?
I'm in pre-pro on my 2nd short film and my DP offered up an option to rent a RED Epic Helium or an Alexa Mini. The Alexa is a bit more per day, and from what I've read and heard, the Mini is a lot better overall. What are your thoughts on the Helium? Is it worth it? Does it look too crisp and not that cinematic? if so, would I be better off going with something like a C500 if that's the case? Is the Alexa Mini that much better than the Helium?
Just trying to figure something out! Any thoughts would be welcomed.
