Alexa Monochrome Infrared

Leica Monochrome, Epic Monochrome, Alexa Monochrome?  There is a small experimental trend in top camera manufactures to offer a solution for black and white. On film, black and white has the ability to capture nuances of light and shadow that just can’t happen on color stock. On digital it can be the same, but the sensor processing and filtration is different. Instead of red green and blue dedicated pixels, all of the pixels are dedicated to luminance. Depending on the calibration of the pixels, this could open up exposure latitude as well as resolution.  There is little info on the Alexa Prototype, so I will dig out as much as I can. I happen to be a huge fan of black and white.
