Hey there Roger and friends!
Roger, this question is meant for you, but would love others opinions as well.
Im prepping for a commercial shoot and the producers said this during a previs meeting,
“Hopefully we can rent the Alexa 35, we won’t need to light outside with all of that dynamic range”
I twitched. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited to get my hands on one and take it for a test drive but it struck me that some people are too obsessed with the tech specs that they don’t really care for the look and feel. I’m sure the new camera will be beautiful and open the door for some new shots with the expanded DR, but I really love the LF.
Maybe it’s because I have shot super35 most of career, that the LF just has a different feel about it. I’m just curious if the feel and look of the larger sensor would ever be a more important factor in choosing a camera than say the extended DR of the new camera. Every camera has its uses and their pros and cons. But hearing all this talk about the new color and dynamic range making the other cameras obsolete seems silly to me.
Do you see yourself ever preferring the look and feel of a mini LF over the improved Dr of the new camera?
