Just another film student wanting to pursue a career in cinematography
I can’t believe they just said “affordable Alexa”. Nah mate. You won’t get your money back on these things. The capture drives alone are shocking. This camera, while being shipped to ARRI offices for purchase (probably to be bought by rental houses) it will be specific to productions that might demand 4K. I know I’m sick of working on Netflix originals and using a Red.
The issue with the Alexa 65 is we didn’t even have one down here in Sydney. Multiple productions discussed having it shipped from LA but every time they ended up just choosing an SXT with some minis.
these depress me so much because it's mostly for the US and i'm australian. so difficult to find any kind of scheme for independents ):
Unfortunately that's only a fix for slow motion footage. It wasn't an issue with the hertz of the lights ):
The one that was the issue I had rented and hadn't used before, so I suppose that was my mistake. What was confusing was that there was no visible flicker from the LED itself, it only appeared on camera. Which is mostly why I'm losing my mind over the damn thing.
However I will use that method if it does turn out to be a sneaky dimming issue - thanks anyway!
