    • Is the Alexa still king? (Actual question, not an argument)
      I feel like RED went in the wrong direction after the Epic 5K sensor, which had larger photosites than Dragon (5.4 vs. 5.0 µm). While I love the color you get from the Dragon, and have put in an order myself for the Raven (which I'm likely to switch to Scarlet-W, as it is the sweet spot for price/performance in RED's lineup), there is no comparison between Dragon and Alexa when it comes to ISO performance at 800: Of course, the Alexa can be noisy as well (e.g., Lubezki's Birdman had excessive noise in the shadows as much of the film was shot in near darkness), and its resolution is not ideal for 4K release, but its lowlight performance is far superior to Dragon, which gets very noisy above ISO 1600.
    • Advice on eBay anamorphic lens listing (No advertising)
      IMO, the best lens is still KOWA 16H or re-branded lens.  ISCO integrated lens is not bad, except no flare.  But the red lens is also over priced now.  And also is the least flare one.  Usually you cannot tell the difference with golden lens.  The golden lenses at least have two type of coating.  One has more flare.   I sold my red lens.  Its manual said "20% to 50% more light output"  means better multi coating, less flare.
    • Is the Alexa still king? (Actual question, not an argument)
      Have you noticed a big difference in quality between ProRes XQ and ProRes LT on your Ursa? Also, do you have a link to your Vimeo page, I would love to see some of your UM4.6 work... Even just some tests?   I just bought a BMMCC and you couldn't be more right about the ProRes files. I always edited in ProRes anyway, so the ability to just copy the files to an external drive without having to convert them is amazing. 
    • Sigma 20mm F1.4 ART review
      He's talking about the 180 degree shutter speed setting - not the crossing the line blocking rule... 
    • FF 50mm 2x Anamorphic is possible!
      At wider apertures, 45mm also covers the FF 2.40 area.
