Arri Alexa Classic issue: 4:3

Recommended Posts

Hi.I want to shoot a movie with Alexa Classic and I want It to be 4:3 and B&W. I don't have codex to shoot It RAW. Do I have to rent It and what is the best way to shoot It 4:3 and Black & white?

The Alexa Classic has a 16:9 sensor. As far as I know, there is no way to crop it to 4:3 in camera. You would have to create custom 4:3 frame lines in the Arri Frameline creator to use as a guide while shooting, then crop the image in post. Black & White would also have to be created in post production.

It's not absolutely necessary IF you can shoot 4444 ProRes Log-C -- raw is slightly better, no compression and things like sharpening are not baked-in.  Neither is color temperature but if you are converting to b&w it's not much of an issue anyway.

The first original Alexa Classic is 16:9, but some of the later versions of the Alexa Classic series has the 4:3 options
