And, yes. It’s really all that.
The most coveted camera on the market, just got more coveted. The famed Alexa XT (think: Revanant, Brooklyn, The Martian) has evolved.
Arri shipped the first Alexa SXT this week. And, we’re stoked.
It’s predecessor, the Alexa XT, had one glaring downfall – it’s inability to shoot in ProRes 4k HD. Problem solved. Now with pro-res 4K recording, seven additional recording formats, and 3 separate outputs, not only is image-quality higher (hard to believe), but versatility and shooting capability have also been taken to a new level.
The individually configurable one-outs (in addition to the viewfinder output) are a huge plus. And, I’m really loving the on set ‘look management’ feature. This resolves a lot of potential issues in post.
A big thanks to Dan Chung and the guys at News Shooter for laying it all down for us here:
The SXT is trickling out, but as soon as it finds its way to rentals nearby, it will be in our hands, and on set. Jumping on a list now at your favorite rental house is highly recommended!
