BMD has neglected many of their io products which still need to be updated to Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.0
"Depth of field" (out of focus background) is produced by the lens aperture, focal length, and camera sensor size; it has nothing to do with your 4k television. On the other hand things like TruMotion and ClearMotion create new frames by interpolation and make drama shows and movies look like soap operas and news.
Even though I’ve never been fan of the 70’s image look produced by the Digital Bolex, I recognize that it has a very “organic” look and no rolling shutter effect due to the CCD global shutter. So it is sad to see another CCD camera going to the graveyard.
P.S. The first video at the top looks so good that is hard to believe it was shot on the Digital Bolex. It lacks that "16mm look".
Zeiss has a detachable Servo Unit similar in concept to this but high-end, for their Compact Zoom lenses.
To me, the Alexa image quality and ergonomics is the closest thing to a film camera. Skin tones look so natural and organic. Highlight rolloff is just beautiful. Veterans DPs (ASC) have said that unlike the other digital cinema cameras, lighting for the Alexa is just like doing it for a film camera. The wow factor is there, but I don’t feel the same when watching footage from the Amira and the Alexa Mini.
Red is so Macho (Dragon, Weapon…) and Arri is so feminine (Alexa, Amira…) LoL!!!
I remember the first prototypes of the Red One camera looked like a futuristic weapon. They even designed some kind of support system that would make the camera looks like a rifle.
