Technology Focus

Combining the compact size and low weight of the ALEXA Mini with the large-format (36.7mm x 25.54mm) ALEXA LF sensor, the ALEXA Mini LF is a go-anywhere camera that has a small footprint, but delivers big images. Recording the same formats as the ALEXA LF, but to the new, state-of-the-art and cost-effective Codex Compact Drive, the ALEXA Mini LF is a robust and reliable camera that features internal MXF/ARRIRAW and MXF/Apple ProRes recording, three internal motorized FSND filters, 12V power input, extra 12V and 24V accessory power outputs, compatibility with ALEXA Mini accessories, additional user and lock buttons, improved WiFi, built-in microphones, easier access to connectors and media, and a new MVF-2 high-contrast HD viewfinder.

While ARRI Signature Primes exemplify state-of-the-art optical precision, they have been designed to render organic, emotionally engaging images, gently softening and texturizing the large format with natural skin tones and creamy bokeh. A fast maximum aperture of T1.8 facilitates shallow depth of field and the smooth focus fall-off gives subjects heightened presence in the frame. These lenses are fitted with the ARRI LPL mount, optimized for large-format sensors. A wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth allows the ARRI Signature Prime lenses and all future large-format optics to be small and lightweight, with a fast T-stop and pleasing bokeh.



Art Adams has worked as a director of photography for over two decades, focusing on commercials, branded content, visual effects and much more. He also served as a technology consultant for companies including Sony, Canon, Element Labs, Sound Devices and more. He is a longtime contributor for publications such as ProVideo Coalition and DVInfo, in addition to authoring articles for American Cinematographer, Australian Cinematographer, Camera Operator Magazine, Film and Digital Times, and HD Video Pro. As a trainer for the ARRI Academy, he instructed classes on ARRI camera systems including the ALEXA LF. He recently joined ARRI as Cinema Lens Specialist. The newly created position will further develop and support sales of ARRI lenses for North America, while collecting user feedback from imagemakers.
