ARRI Introduces 6.5K Alexa 65 Camera

After months of rumors, ARRI has introduced its new camera: the ARRI Alexa 65, capable of 6.5K recording.

Writes RedShark News, “The 6.5K sensor is actually larger than the frame of ARRI’s 65mm film camera, or three times the area of a Super35 sensor. At full resolution (open gate, 6560 x 3102, 2.11:1), it will record video at a staggering rate of 2.6 terabytes an hour in ARRIRAW, onto the same Codex XR media used by the Alexa XT. There are two crop modes for 1.78 and 1.5:1, which will bring you down to 1.9 and 1.6 TB/h respectively, but there’s no way around the fact that the Alexa 65 is a storage-hungry beast.”
