ALEXA Mini Quick Tip: Remote Control via Wi-Fi

 

The design of the ARRI ALEXA Mini lends itself to all kinds of rigging scenarios. It may be used in an aerial rig, or underwater housing, where the camera is not easily accessible and a viewfinder is not attached. In these situations, another method of changing the camera settings is required. Every ALEXA Mini has Wi-Fi built into it, and by default it is turned on.

In the video above, I will show you how to quickly set up and control the Mini using a Wi-Fi connected device. On a desktop computer you will need to use Chrome or Firefox, but the Mini also supports mobile Safari on iOS devices. Once connected, menu navigation is identical to using the viewfinder, and you have additional options like record and playback control.
