Having made it this far reading this thread, I must say my head hurts a little. My thanks to Fred for making me read his last post three times. Now, I think I'll take De Bayer (aspirin).

Since I don't personally own a pocket protector, I'm not sure I'm qualified to join this conversation. But as a small-time DP, what I want to know is this: Does the Alexa make great images? How will it look on the small screen? Is the camera ergonomically and intelligently designed? Can I pop it off the tripod and run with it?Is it rugged and reliable? Is it noisy? Does it run hot? Are the controls and menus easy to access and understand? Can I easily operate it solo? Does the post path work for a wide variety of clients with different systems?

Considering you can now buy an Arri (for cryin' out loud!) for less than what an F900 cost just a few years ago, I'd say it's pretty friggin remarkable. For the small screen...and let's be truthful, that's where most of us here on the Cow work...who needs Red with all it's baggage and headaches?
