ARRI Rental adds new ALEXA Mini LF
to camera fleet
ALEXA Mini LF is a highly versatile addition to the ARRI large-format camera system. Its introduction further expands ARRI Rental’s ALEXA range—the widest available anywhere.
Combining the compact size and low weight of the popular ALEXA Mini with the large-format ALEXA LF sensor, ALEXA Mini LF is a go-anywhere camera that has a small footprint, but delivers big images.
Recording the same formats as ALEXA LF, but to the new, state-of-the-art and cost-efficient Codex Compact Drive, ALEXA Mini LF is a robust and reliable camera that features internal MXF/ARRIRAW and MXF Apple/ProRes recording, three internal motorized FSND filters, 12 V power input, extra 12 V and 24 V 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.
Optimized for large-format lenses, the LPL lens mount fitted to ALEXA LF and ALEXA Mini LF cameras accepts ARRI Signature Primes, ARRI Rental DNA LF and 65 format optics, and third-party LPL lenses. The PL-to-LPL adapter, which attaches securely to the LPL lens mount without tools, offers backwards compatibility with all PL mount lenses, be they full-frame or Super 35 (with coverage dependent on the individual lens). LDS-2 or /i lens metadata is accessible via the LPL mount, and LDS-1 or /i via the PL-to-LPL adapter
ALEXA Mini LF will perfectly complement the high-speed, studio-style ALEXA LF camera on large-format productions. It will also be a superb additional camera on ALEXA 65 shoots using the even larger 65 mm format. Since the ALEXA 65 can be fitted with an LPL lens mount, DNA and other lenses can be shared between the two cameras and formats with ease, depending on the coverage of each lens.
With the ALEXA large-format system, ALEXA 35 format cameras, and the exclusive ALEXA 65, ARRI Rental offers a wider range of ALEXA cameras than any other rental company in the world. ALEXA Mini LF will be available at your local ARRI Rental facility from mid-2019.
