Elswit, Romano and crew spent a month shooting the sequence in a water tank at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden earlier this year, and Romano speaks here about his experiences.

The role and importance of lens data has increased in the last years, either from the increase in complexity of on-set shots or from the ever more demanding VFX scenes required today. With ARRI’s new LDE-1 and SUP 2 for the WCU-4, lens data is available regardless of the set up, this gives the ability to use any camera, any lens, (even manual follow focus!) and still have the all the parameters that modern setups have.
This is Sweden’s top 10 box office hits for the first half of 2014. This time there are two animated movies in the mix, and both are in respectable places on the list (3rd and 6th).

Designed from the outset to be adaptable and future-proof, ALEXA can easily accommodate productions that choose to follow a UHD or 4K workflow. The camera's stellar overall image quality in combination with ProRes 3.2K (due for release as a software update in early 2015) and ARRIRAW Open Gate (released earlier this year) allows for simple up-sampling to UHD or 4K in a quality at least as good as other contenders.
There’s a new software upgrade for the ARRI Amira camera, that will allow it to record ProRes UHD files, the upgrade will available for purchase by the end of the year. The purchasable upgrade will offer the ability to record all ProRes codecs in UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution directly onto the in-camera CFast 2.0 cards, at up to 60 fps (via an upscale filter). The upgrade will be available via a new software license (and a sensor calibration for existing Amiras), this is a response to user feedback, collected through a number of ‘quizzes’ given to customers by resellers.
