For those who do not know, the ARRI Group is a provider of film crew based in Germany, and as you would expect no manufactures cameras for the general public, the priority here is the picture quality fullscreen. His latest creation is called ARRI Alexa 65.
¿4K? What if you have a team capable of recording what we could call 6.5K. The maximum resolution of video work this wonder is 6,560 x 3,102 pixels, and does so with the dynamic range – 14 steps, near 18 Red Dragon – expected in a camera intended for the professional sector and cinema.
The secret to getting these specifications is in the new A3X 65 mm sensor, CMOS type, which is three times larger than the Super 35 format is the largest sensor of its kind in the market, with an active area of Image of 54.12 x 25.59 mm.
