In our second episode covering NAB 2010 (#80) we look at Cineform, the latest release of Mocha and we get details on Arri's latest offering for digital cinematography, Alexa. This new camera can record raw files and at the same time generate ProRes files for immediate use in post production so we asked to shoot the interview with the Alexa, one of the first times the camera has been used outside of Arri.

    Why was the Alexa footage shot at 30fps? It was sad for me to see footage from this camera for the first time playback all jittery in the podcast 🙁 Did the Arri guys set it and didn’t let you touch it?

    Still pretty sweet you got to shoot an interview on it! Thanks for the awesome podcasts!

    • The camera prototype was only capable of doing 30fps to the SxS card, obviously this will be changing.

        Ah, that explains it! Still very cool, I like the color and the DoF
