I am thinking of investing in the Ninja 2 or the new Samuri Blade in order to obtain the uncompressed footage.
This will be important when color correcting and or grading the video before compression for the web.
All ALEXA XT cameras come with the new XR Module (Extended Recording), a side panel that was co-developed with Codex and that replaces the previous Sx S Module.
And recording onto Sx S PRO cards is also possible: with an Sx S Adapter it is possible to record Pro Res or DNx HD to a single Sx S PRO card, thus protecting the inventory of existing cards.
As an extra feature, the black protective top cover of the XR Module can be replaced with red, green, blue, yellow or white top covers to identify A, B, C, D, E and F camera units.
2: The more important item in this case will be the color space.
