While the photography crowd might laugh at Arri’s use of the term “large format” when we’re talking about a sensor only a hair larger than a “full frame” DSLR or mirrorless camera. When it comes to video, though, that is rather large. At 36.7 x 25.54mm, the sensor offers 4.5K (4448 x 3096) resolution and […] The post Arri launches the Alexa Mini LF – “Large format” 4.5K cinema camera appeared first on DIY Photography.
