Can you spot the Alexa Mini? (3 replies and 7 comments)
Just for fun, guess which image was shot on an Alexa Mini and which was shot on a far less expensive camera? I'll post the answer, and what the second camera was after some replies. Good luck!
The second one is the Mini I'm sure 😀
It looks like there's only one picture as they are identical down to the minute detail. I think they are both the Mini.
No idea which one is the mini but the tones in the face of the second is my preference
Alexa mini is the first photo. Havana cigars would be nice.
I was going to say that the Alexa was the first one because the brightest parts of the skin tone stay the same color just get hotter, but in the other one, there is a shift to the cyan as the skin gets hotter.
Wow - great observation David. I didn't even notice it.
David W - they are from different cameras. In the 1st image, the girl on the right - her left eye is looking cross eyed. In the 2nd image, it's normal. I'm out tonight, but will post the answers tomorrow. Thanks for participating!
Ah my mistake you're right, props to whoever took the picture for getting the poses so accurate the 2nd time.
Well done Mike! You win a virtual box of Havana Cigars! Yes image #1 is the Alexa. Now for the big surprise - image #2 is from a Canon C100 Mkii. Price - $2,999.00. Completely unscientific and the scene is one that doesn't show what the Alexa is so exceptional at - dynamic range, specifically it's 7+ stops above neutral grey. Non the less, with a little color correction, the C100 looks pretty good. And now for Mike's prize...
