Everybody was wondering when Arri would jump into the 4K camera race. Today we were surprised with the announcement of their new 6K camera, the ALEXA 65 that uses a giant 65mm sensor.

The camera’s sensor is a new sensor developed by Arri that is slightly larger than a 65mm 5-perf film frame. Some sites claim that the sensor is comprised of three Alexa sensors that are arranged vertically and seamlessly stitched together.

Red Dragon is slightly larger than 35mm frame and it’s one sensor, not three stitched together vertically. Wait for Monstro 645 or Dragon 70 and then compare.
