I was wondering if anyone has encountered codec errors with the alexa, I had a shoot this past week where after about 1 minute the camera would stop recording display a codec error and would require a re-boot. It was very annoying and cost us time. This occured when the Camera was recording to 64g SxS cards @ 60 fps on a high speed enabled alexa. Our solution was to go 422, that seemed to solve the problem.

Sounds like a recording speed issue of the memory card. I've heard of cards merely reaching the specs necessary for such extreme rates like Pro444 @ 60fps. Tested it with a new Sony Pro card?

Yes these were sony cards and both had the problem. Although the take was intact up until the error.
