Show notes

We are waiting for access to a monochrome D16 in order to shoot a quick native B&W D16 vs. desaturated color D16 to illustrate the difference between the cameras.

Quickly here’s the real advantages of a native monochrome camera
– No CFA (color filter array), this means greater sensitivity on the D16 maximum ISO jumps from 400 to 800.
– More visible resolution.
– More accurate total range.

The links below all illustrate some of these facts, for a generally more scientific explanation of what is happening at the imaging sensor level, I recommend looking at the Red.com link below.

Here are the links to the current crop of native monochrome digital cinema cameras, and their associated purchase price ranges:

Arri Alexa XT B&W (Rental Only)
Red Epic Monochrome $25,000 – $45,000
Digital Bolex D16M $3,799 – $4,299
