Now how about a 6 reason to NOT buy? ;)
Seems more like an overpriced gimmick camera. 4.5K in 2018? Way to show up late in the game, Arri. Now you can play with the big boys, Amazon/Netflix.
Without sounding like a negative-nancy, the LF seems like another overpriced Arri camera to be sold at half the price in less than 4 years.
It's interesting to see that once Sony Venice was announced along with the Red 8k Weapon partnership with Panavision DXL --not to mention the new Netflix/Amazon 4K restrictions— Arri is suddenly feeling the heat and playing catch-up with this "new" system.
What a shame; these guys quickly realize that they are finally losing market share, and it shows.
Arri, here's something you can do, make your cameras more affordable, scalable, and light for the new generation of filmmakers, studios, and distribution channels, and you won't have to come out with silly gimmicky 4.5 cameras with proprietary lenses; but that would just make too much sense.
The camera's going for $98,000 with a $10k deposit.
