2012 will take another step towards digital standards and deliverables that conform to a considered industry specification, another year but another avalanche of new software and media to self tutor on.
The F65 arrives, and having now completed full evaluation and testing along with full location deliverables, studio uploads, VFX delivery, H.264s, Avid MXF and AVBs plus all the regular dailies media now related to Theatrical releases I can say that the F65 looks fantastic and is a very approachable format for those said deliverables.
Arriraw now exists in both 16:9 (Alexa Plus and M) and 4:3 (Alexa Studio). Arriraw at 4:3 sensor size records more media information and is another 20% increase in your data footprint. Same results, the major pluses are the optical VF (stunning) and the ability to use 2:1 Anamorphic lenses.
Welcome to 2012 and another year of Digital Cinematography. I have plenty of examples of new shoots to describe plus new workflow options for all shoots.
So new updates coming very soon including new Features shot with Arriraw and also Red Epic shoots plus new options for the Sony F65 and its new 16bit RAW 4K recording.
