Rent Arri Alexa LF Large Format PL Camera in New York City.
Sensor and Workflows
The new Arri Alexa LF Large Format PL Camera features a sensor that is slightly larger than full frame. In fact, the LF currently features the largest full-frame sensor of any cinema camera on the market! The LF records native 4K with the best overall image quality ARRI has to offer. This allows filmmakers to explore an immersive large-format aesthetic while retaining the sensor’s natural colorimetry, pleasing skin tones and stunning capability for HDR and WCG workflows. Efficient ProRes and uncompressed, unencrypted ARRIRAW up to 150 fps are amongst the versatile recording formats that encompass all on-set workflow requirements.
LPL Lens Mount
The LPL lens mount is a crucial element of this new system, optimized for large-format sensors. It features a wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth. This 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. This combination of features would not be possible within the confines of the PL lens mount. The LPL mount will also be available for other ARRI cameras such as the ALEXA Mini. In addition, it is being licensed to third-party lens and camera manufacturers.
Finally, the ALEXA LF will feel very intuitive to those accustomed to working with other cameras in the ALEXA line, as the set-up on the LF is very similar. However, it is a bit larger than the rest of the ALEXA cameras. In addition, all buttons are positioned on the side of the camera away from the operator. This makes it quick and easy to adjust the settings.
