I just watched Joker (amazing film), and looked up the camera spec on ShotOnWhat. One thing I found interesting is how they used Alexa 65, LF and the mini for the film. The Alexa LF and 65 parts were interesting to me, since considering with budget of 55 million, there shouldn't be a reason not to get another 65 instead of LF. Especially considering DP Lawrence Sher ASC also shot Godzilla II: King of the Monsters, another alexa 65 show, and should be able to negotiate the rate down quite a bit. Using the LF feels a bit odd, since there will be another crop ratio to consider, as we would need to crop in on top and bottom to get 1.85:1 in the LF, where as we can keep the full height on the 65. This leads me to wonder is there any advantage to shooting LF over 65 (besides cost and that it doesn't matter if you shoot anamorphic)? Jing
So I purchased a ARRI ALEXA CLASSIC and it came with a baseplate that takes 19mm rods. Unfortunately for me my old arri follow focus only works with 15mm rods. Are there any other baseplate available for the Alexa that take in 15mm rods? I tried bushings to use both 15mm and 19mm but I didn't have success with it. Thanks

Hi All, I am about to start principal photography on the next series of Strike Back in South Africa and we have switched to the Alexa. Can any one recommend an underwater housing for the Alexa M that would allow us to shoot in a confined space that is submerging ? Thanks Mike Spragg
