I know this is kind of a redundant topic, but I'd like to hear what the people here have to say in regards to not image quality, but their experience in terms of both physically handling the camera and workflow.

The Alexa is a much more pleasing camera to deal with from a camera dept. standpoint. There are less technical issues, it's more ergonomic, It has its own power distro built-in, and the menus are easy to navigate, and you won't screw up your setting every time you reach to swivel your monitor.

 

When it comes to workflow, you have to be more specific. Are you shooting ProRes, or Arriraw?

I'm not actually shooting a film right now. I'm just asking for people with experience on these two cameras to speak about it so I can have some more insight. Have you shot ArriRaw?
