    That dynamic range is literally magic to me. Hot dog.

    Waiting for your Arri Alexa giveaway in your next sponsored video. 🙂 Greetings from Arri's home town.

    I was waiting for someone’s hair to catch on fire…. ?

  5. John Raen December 4, 2019 at 11:30 pm

    When do you think Arri camera will be in smartphones? I want it NOW

  6. Philip Rung December 4, 2019 at 11:32 pm

    Potato Jet, what song at 9:18? Can I find it on Epedemic or Musicbed? ?

  7. JSW Photography December 4, 2019 at 11:34 pm

    I would love to see you do a video on the Ursa Mini Pro G2… I've heard people call it the "poor mans Arri". It would be interesting to hear your take on that. Boss yoga btw!…

  8. John Raen December 4, 2019 at 11:35 pm

    $32,400 USD for one lens?!?!?!

  9. benhizzle December 4, 2019 at 11:36 pm

    Pure comedy, I love this channel.

  10. Spirit December 4, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    A few technical corrections:
    1 – The "rare earth element" they told you is "secret sauce" – it really isn't. It's a thermoelectric cooler(peltier), the same thing as in a car's mini fridge. Most professional cameras stabilize(note – STABILIZE, not COOL!) their sensor temperature because calibration is only valid for certain temperatures. Passing current through it causes one side to get cold, the other to get hot. The hot side is heatsinked to the giant metal body, or a giant heatsink in Blackmagic's Ursa Mini cameras for example.
    2 – The "two processor" thing for 16 bit is a bit of a misdirection. The ALEV III sensor has a dual gain architecture – the sensor itself only has two sets of amplifiers at different gains, and the analog to digital conversion is done on the circuit boards, whereas on more compact integrated cameras, the sensor itself has an ADC and outputs digital data.
    I haven't torn into an Alexa yet(donations, anyone? :P), but I'm guessing that it just has two separate ADC channels for each gain stage, and then it blends the images coming out in post to get the highest signal to noise ratio. It's the same with Blackmagic cameras, except all that is done on the sensor – you get two digital outputs, high gain and low gain.

    I just can't decide if the brunette with the fire or yoga girl is hotter ?

  13. ZENITH POINT MEDIA December 4, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    Dude, you should have swapped shirts with the yogi! minds would have been blown for just a few brief seconds

  14. Chris W December 4, 2019 at 11:55 pm

    mmmmmm great subjects ;'D

  15. John’s Films December 4, 2019 at 11:57 pm

    Clearly you are speaking code to the PotatoPosse(TM). “I asked Arri if they were making EF Mount for the LF to get the EF lenses on the LF with EF looks and EF lens libraries for LF goodness”…or something like that.

  16. Adr805 December 4, 2019 at 11:59 pm

    doesn't matter if you watch it in HD or 4k, youtube makes the quality this shit, you can't spot the difference ?

  17. MENMProd December 4, 2019 at 11:59 pm

    Ha ah you really accept my challenge ! to vlog with it xD lol Man the image quality .. you've convinced me ! tomorrow I'm going to the bank to ask for a 60-year loan, thank's 🙂 … lool :p

    In reality every business wants good quality, however they not willing to pay for it…

  22. EFormance Engineering December 5, 2019 at 12:07 am

    I want to know how the ARRI and the VLOG camera compare when you expose to the right, 1-2 stops down, then recover?

  23. RumRunneerFilms December 5, 2019 at 12:08 am

    Thumbs up for Jason helping you out.

  24. Mark D Allen December 5, 2019 at 12:11 am

  34. Ethan December 5, 2019 at 12:28 am

  39. Viking Creative Studios December 5, 2019 at 12:42 am

    Baller camera for sure. Would be a dream to get some of those for my studio with models. Right now we be shooting boudoir models and music videos on full frame and these bigger sensors are just a dream

    The first Potato Jet video to carry the PG-13 rating! Beautiful women dancing with fire, and Gene playing with the orbiter! ?

  45. Brandon Lim December 5, 2019 at 1:02 am

    The impossible standards for camera man nowadays. 11:04

  46. Zhen Yao Yin December 5, 2019 at 1:05 am

    Gene and Sam doing acro yoga is the best thing I’ve seen on YouTube today

  47. Erskin Hansen December 5, 2019 at 1:17 am

    Potato Jet got quiet on that last comment and it took me way too long to catch that reference LOL ??

  48. Taslim Jasman December 5, 2019 at 1:19 am

    Potato: You probably watch this at 720p
    Me: Change it to 4k?

    that's sure really good image tho. wish I could play with it too

  52. Kurtiskurtical December 5, 2019 at 1:26 am

    Hollywood loves the original Alexa Mini. It's still the go-to workhorse camera. Ask the rental houses in "Hollywood" (aka greater Los Angeles area) and they'll tell you the Alexa Mini is still WAY more popular than the Mini LF. The Alexa Mini LF is TOO expensive and requires 24 volt batteries, which most camera batteries aren't.

    But nice clickbait title though.

  53. Stephen Stanford December 5, 2019 at 1:28 am

  57. Duy Nguyen December 5, 2019 at 1:46 am

    Don't be sad, Gene. The camera will help you pay for the house. 😀

  61. Kris Li December 5, 2019 at 2:02 am

    Can we please have a Bmpcc6k vs Alexa mini? (Not I blow light of course) My dumb eyes can’t really see the difference between eos r vs Alexa and eos r vs bmpcc.

  62. The Place For Things December 5, 2019 at 2:07 am

    microns is funny to say out loud

  63. Sky London December 5, 2019 at 2:11 am

    “And at least the camera won’t float away”
    And I’m just left giggling on the sofa. Oh gosh that was funny.

  64. Momchil Yordanov December 5, 2019 at 2:12 am

    At 11:24 the boy from UP is at it again…

  65. Darrell Hook December 5, 2019 at 2:14 am

    Yup, I was waiting for Gene to say this was sponsored by Arri and that he would be giving away a this entire camera setup. Lol. Really I love seeing how things are done at the Hollywood level. It’s so cool. Keep it up Gene.

  66. Jerry Nieves December 5, 2019 at 2:16 am

    This guy is so funny lol

  67. Jon Ravid December 5, 2019 at 2:20 am

    Red Gemini can handle this even better and cost less than half the price.

  68. Iron 2 Iron December 5, 2019 at 2:21 am

    I'm chuckling at a pro in his element throwing the alphabet around in technobabble format with the LPL to PL and the EF…LMNOP. So that's what I sound like LOL.

    Damn
    That last comment

    Was beautifully crafted

  75. Lets Do THIS Yeah December 5, 2019 at 2:45 am

    Idk why you don’t have 20 mil subs you are the best

  76. T.D. Wu December 5, 2019 at 2:50 am

    I went back to the Arri episode just to give that "float away" comment a thumb-up, and Gene's face……priceless.

  77. Alan Jun December 5, 2019 at 2:51 am

    what an episode… love it!

  78. Fuad Iftekher December 5, 2019 at 2:51 am

  80. Bad Tacos December 5, 2019 at 2:57 am

    Stop saying Alexa! It triggers stupid Alexa

  81. Dawwal Creative December 5, 2019 at 2:58 am

    These are the only gear bits I want to see more of. Eff consumer stuff. Go full pro….it's good for us to aspire to greatness. GREAT GREAT video.

  84. Thinking Art Entertainment December 5, 2019 at 3:07 am

    The Alexa is cool and all, but how they put that fire in their mouths?!?!?!

  86. Azat Gevorgyan December 5, 2019 at 3:11 am

    Thanks for this amazing Video!!!

  87. topher maz December 5, 2019 at 3:12 am

    Love shooting with the LF but will never shoot with the ArriRaw Codec again because it creates insanely huge files even when it gives me 90fps in 4K. ProRes mode also automatically creates an internal backup on the codex card! Plus those files are plenty!

  88. Yogeshwaran December 5, 2019 at 3:13 am

    wow superb ❤️?

  89. meat woaf December 5, 2019 at 3:16 am

    Potato Jet thinking….
    How many videos about Arri do I need to make before they sponsor me?
    I've bought one of their cameras, I say all sorts of nice things about them. I've tried everything!
    Potato Jet has a bright moment….. Wait I have and Idea! What about some….

    hot fire breathing women!
    If they don't sponsor my next video, I quit.

  90. Kenneth Opiana December 5, 2019 at 3:18 am

    I love how Arri Alexa handles color more. Those cream pastel look from Arri Alexa is best.

  91. Joseph Newcomb December 5, 2019 at 3:21 am

    So if you stick a flaming marshmelo onto the arri sensor it won’t over heat? ?

  92. CameraManFrank December 5, 2019 at 3:21 am

    You’re killing it with when it comes to dropping quality content , I can dig it lol . Also I dropped a pretty dope behind the scenes video today and it would be dope if you could check it out and provide me with some feedback lol also others that may see this comment ????????

  93. Denmas Ulin December 5, 2019 at 3:24 am

    ARRI ALEXA MINI LF vs GoPro 8

  94. DarklingGolem December 5, 2019 at 3:26 am

    Is that on your christmas wish list?

  95. KitchenGod December 5, 2019 at 3:31 am

    i had to like once you started flying lol

  96. Elvis Ripley December 5, 2019 at 3:33 am

    What is the frame rate for most of this slow motion? Is it all full sensor width?

  97. Sushant Shrestha December 5, 2019 at 3:37 am

    U should start shooting your utube videos with the arri and put ur eos r and 80 d in the background
    Setting new standard for utube vids

  98. Rage Studios December 5, 2019 at 3:46 am

    whoever knows the yoga girl is a potato jet hardcore fan

  99. Brandon Rothe December 5, 2019 at 3:50 am

    Leaving this comment just in case Arri secretly sponsored this video

  100. Jarvis Iron December 5, 2019 at 3:54 am
