Alexa SUP 5.0 Impressions

Alexa SUP 5.0 BetaWe’ve taken SUP 5.0 for a test drive. Overall impression? The Alexa is feeling more and more like a completely developed camera with each update, and this is no exception. There are still a few features missing, but the details are almost all there. This is a beta version, so there may be further changes, but for now, here’s a rundown:

What We Like

  • 60fps ARRIRAW, I repeat, 60fps ARRIRAW
  • active Look file indicator in the home screen
  • false color index in the monitor out menu (we can stop making the laminated cards that get lost all the time!)
  • Look files on playback
  • horizontal image flip

What We Don’t Like

  • the new clip name in status info option places a dark grey bar with the clip name right across the bottom of the picture area, actually within the frame.
