NAB '12: ALEXA Plus 4:3 and Network Adapter WNA-1

ARRI is now offering three ALEXA cameras with a 4:3 Super-35 sensor designed for anamorphic: ALEXA Plus 4:3, ALEXA Studio and ALEXA M. The ALEXA Plus 4:3 offers many of the same features as the ALEXA Studio, including the anamorphic desqueeze license, high-speed license and DNxHD license. However, it still has an electronic viewfinder, as opposed to the spinning mirror optical viewfinder system found in the ALEXA Studio.

ARRI also showed off a concept anamorphic lens that was developed with Zeiss, as well as the Network Adapter WNA-1, which is part of ARRI's open camera initiative that allows designers to create apps to access and control the ALEXA cameras.

Watch my video above to learn more about these new additions to the ALEXA line.
