Time for some ARRI Alexa Mini Vs Sony F65 Vs RED EPIC Dragon Vs RED WEAPON Helium camera from Vienna Austria based mxproductions.

MXR holiday shootout from mxrproductions on Vimeo.

Holiday is testing time! So we shot different cameras in the studio:
– ARRI Alexa Mini (ARRIRAW, Open gate 3.4K)
– Sony F65 (F65RAW-SQ)
– RED Epic Dragon (6K, 5:1)
– RED Weapon Helium (8K, 5:1)

Everything was shot on a ZEISS LWZ.2 at 45mm. We measured T8 at our models face. All cameras were shot at following T-stops: 8, 11, 16, 22, 5.6, 4, 2.8
Every camera was set to ISO800, 5600K, 25FPS and 180-degree shutter.

In Davinci Resolve we applied following LUTs to the raw image data:
– Alexa LogC -> Arri Alexa LogC to Rec709.dat
– F65 SLog3/SGamut3.cine -> SLog3SGamut3.CineToLC-709TypeA.cube
– Dragon RedLogFilm/DragonColor2 -> RLF_2_RG4_64.cube
– Helium REDWideGamutRGB/Log3G10 -> IPP2 Preview.cube
– Helium REDWideGamutRGB/Log3G10 -> Antons_ARRI_Christmas_LUT_BETA_v1.cube
