Alexa Mini LF

Categories: ARRI

Built around a large-format 4K version of the original ALEXA sensor, the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF (LPL) camera offers native 4K recording in three sensor modes, with ARRIRAW or ProRes recording in LF Open Gate, LF 16:9, or LF 2.39:1 mode. The ALEXA Mini LF combines large-format resolution with an optimal pixel size for excellent image quality producing vivid, nuanced images with natural skin tones and smooth bokeh. The ALEXA Mini LF is designed with ARRI’s LPL lens mount that has been optimized for large-format capture and is compatible with all PL-mount lenses with the use of a PL-to-LPL adapter. A wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth than the original ARRI PL mount enable LPL-mount lenses to be smaller and lighter than earlier large-format optics.

Features:

  • Immersive large-format look
  • Uses the same ALEV III (A2X) CMOS sensor with Bayer pattern color filter array found in the ALEXA LF
  • Sensor Size: 36.7mm x 25.54mm; ⌀44.71mm (Photosite Pitch: 8.25 μm)
  • Sensor Framerates: 0.75-90 fps, depending on settings
  • Fixed optical low pass (OLPF), UV, IR filter
  • Lower noise with higher usable sensitivity
  • Highest dynamic range of any production camera to date, with 14+ stops over the entire sensitivity range (from EI 160 to EI 3200, as measured with ARRI DRTC-1 Dynamic Range Test Chart)
  • Manual & Auto White Balance adjustable from 2000K to 11,000K in 10K steps
  • ARRI color science provides natural skin tones, enables easy color correction, and clean VFX workflow
  • Ideal for use with HDR and Wide Color Gamut displays
  • Uncompressed, unencrypted MXF/ARRIRAW recording
  • Supports fast & efficient MXF/AppleProRes (MXF-wrapped ProRes)
