Cámara Alexa Mini
Alexa Mini is a compact and lightweight camera, one of the lightest cinema cameras on the market (2.3 kg). Thanks to its cubic design, the Arri Alexa Mini offers easy handling and the possibility of multiple camera configurations. It has internal ND filters (0.6, 1.2 and 2.1) and has an interchangeable PL mount that connects directly with the new internal sensor mount – also made of titanium – to ensure a super-stable flange focal distance, even when using large lenses.
You can also configure the camera to Canon EF or B4 mount. It records up to 200 frames per second with a large dynamic range (14 stops) and the characteristic look of the Alexas. It also allows ARRIRAW recording and placing the ratio in 4: 3 formats.
Alexa Mini is a reliable solution for all types of productions being a perfect camera in different shooting situations like cranes, Steadicam or Movi, aerial planes, underwater or hand held.
Strength and agility through state-of-the-art materials
A lot of solutions have been incorporated to the design of the camera for being able to maintain the rugged build quality that characterized ARRI in a small and lightweight camera.
Which includes a highly integrated and sealed electronics, a lightweight carbon housing and a solid titanium PL mount that connects directly with the new internal sensor mount (also made by titanium) to ensure a super-stable flange focal distance, even when using large lenses. Because of its size it is very easy to transport and can facilitate a lot in shooting with confined spaces.
Versatile mounting and shooting options
The Alexa Mini offers a lot of ways and possibilities for the operator. You could operate with an on-board monitor and controlled via the user button interface on the camera body or by wireless remote control, as a normal camera with the ARRI MVF-1 multi viewfinder attached. This camera is extremely quiet at the time of operating which makes it ideal for tight shooting conditions. It is light and compact enough to be comfortably held at arm’s length in a hand rig.
It has a symmetrical design which permits filming in any orientation, including upside-down and in portrait mode, while multiple accessory points enable highly creative mounting solutions. In addition, the ALEXA Mini’s interchangeable lens mount can be replaced with any of those designed for the ARRI AMIRA, allowing the use of B4 video and EF mount stills lenses.
Uncompromised image quality for specialized shots
A great thing about the Alexa Mini is that it combines the characteristics of this unique model, its compatibility, its lightness, the different camera configuration it offers, etc, with the unparalleled image quality that has made the ARRI ALEXA system a standard for the industry. If you want to combine the Mini with any other ALEXA camera then you will have perfectly matched images, even on anamorphic productions – thanks to the 4:3 sensor and automatic de‑squeeze function. You will also find the same workflows with options to record ProRes or uncompressed ARRIRAW either in-camera to CFast 2.0 cards or to a specially-designed external Codex recorder.
Saving time on set
Now by using an external Codex recorder which can record images streams from even four ALEXA Minis simultaneously you can make much easier specialized shots or multi-camera setups such as 360º plate shots, stop wasting extra time.
You can also avoid using a separate high-speed camera by using the ALEXA Mini which offers you the possibility of shooting with a maximum frame rate of 200 fps means it can also be used for stunning slow-motion cinematography.
