How many bites was made if all of data from CCD is digitalized first...of course before MPEG4 compression in case of F23 or F35!?

3 x 74.25 MHz x 14 bits = 3118.5 Mbps /4:4:4

or

3 x (1920 x 1080) x 14 bits = 87.0912 Mb x 25 fps => 2177 Mbps

I think that first equation is right...but in book "High definition cinematography" Paul Wheeler (second edition) was explained second equation (for HDW-F900,but same story... ).

My second question...
RED ONE has CMOS sensor at 4096 x 2304/12 bits.
Uncompressed RAW => 4096 x 2304 x 12 bits = 113.24 Mb x 25 fps = 2831.15 Mbps
How much bytes would be made for RGB 4K (uncomressed)? There : http://www.redoneafrica.com/redone.htm, was written that RGB 4K uncompressed made 1313 MB/s, how?

Sorry for too much maths

The 74.25 MHz thing is from old time analog HDTV. The right answer on uncompressed bit rate is to multiply out colors, pixels, bits, and frame rates:

For 4:4:4 RGB you have three color channels, 1920 x 1080 pixels, 14 bit depth, and 25 frames per second:

3 x (1920 x 1080) x 14 bits x 25 fps = 87.0912 Mb x 25 fps = 2177 Mbps

For the Red, with its Bayer mask, you have one color per location, 4096 x 2304 photosites, and again 25 frames per second:

1 x (4096 x 2304) x 12 bits x 25 fps = 113.24 Mb x 25 fps = 2831 Mbps

RGB 4K, given the same height, bit depth, and frame rate would be 3 x 2831 Mbps = 8493 Mbps

1313 sounds like it's compressed.

Hello, er 1313MB/s is correct as 8 bits = 1 byte. So 8493Mb/s = 1061.625MB/s.

Rather massive file sizes if you think about it. Per minute of footage is around 60GB.

Ah, yes, thanks -- you're right. It's the old bits vs. Bytes thing.

At 60 GBytes per minute, you can easily get half an hour on a two TeraByte drive. So, it's within the range of practicality now. S.Two and Codex are doing it -- uncompressed raw -- with the new Arri Alexa.
