So I've been looking over the specs of the new Arri Alexa and its looking mightily impressive. It has a similar chip to the RED One and can record to a RAW format similar to R3D. But it can also record straight to 2k ProRes4444 files to SxS cards. And, it can also make create ARRIRAW and QT files simultaneously so you have you offline and online files ready from the get go with identical metadata. That could be a deal breaker. It also is likely to have more latitude than the RED and a native 800ASA rating.
