The 8k sensor and large format lenses actually get creamier and have a smooth silky texture. Combined with the older glass, especially the Ultra Panavision lenses, it just starts to look like magic.

Living Color

A decade into the file-based era, cinematographers finally have a digital camera that offers an aesthetic worth craving. DXL’s revolutionary image mapping process, Light Iron Color, delivers a rich cinematic look right out of the camera. Feast your eyes on film-like density, neutral shadows, and natural skin tones.


From there, you can take advantage of DXL’s 16-bit color to further customize your look with on-set LUTs and final color grades to create truly unique and stunning images.


Maximize with Outpost

From setting looks, to downloading media, to syncing sound, and backing up, Outpost is the most powerful mobile solution for integrating production and post.

Simultaneous Proxies

Record 4K or 2K proxy files (ProRes/DNx) alongside the 8K RAW files to create a direct-to-edit workflow with the NLE
of your choice.
