This story is currently developing, but it appears that the newest firmware (v3.3.3) allow the Scarlet to shoot with full frame lookaround. This means the full 5K sensor is being utilized. This means that your crop factor is now 1.3, just like the EPIC. The original post from the Reduser.net thread:
SDI out feeds full sensor FOV when look around is enabled.
Samurai is now recording full sensor FOV to 1080p ProRes…not as good as 5k of course, but it definitely makes the Atomos even more useful…..stwooooooooops!
My TV clients are going to love this.
Long story short, the ability to use the full sensor at 24fps is limited to HDMI/SDI output. This means you can only record 4:2:2 at 1080p, but it’s 1080p full-debayer downsampled from 5k!! This means you can attach an Atomos Samurai to the camera, and you’re ready to rock and roll, with more manageable file sizes. Seems pretty tempting especially if you’re shooting for web delivery.
