Arri ALEXA Mini PL Camera with 4:3 and Arriraw License for Rent in New York City.
The Arri Alexa Mini PL Camera with 4:3 and Arriraw License marries compact and lightweight form factor with image quality that made the ALEXA system an industry gold standard. Combine the Mini with any other ALEXA camera and you will have perfectly matched images. This is even true on anamorphic productions – thanks to the 4:3 sensor and automatic de‑squeeze function. Workflows will also be identical, with options to record ProRes or uncompressed ARRIRAW. Recordings can be either in-camera to CFast 2.0 cards or to a specially-designed external Codex recorder.
In addition, the ALEXA Mini features integrated lens motor control and ND filters. The need for an external box is eliminated via this integration, as lens motors can now be “connected directly to the titanium PL mount.” Additional settings can be remotely accessed using the ARRI WCU-4 hand unit.
The symmetrical design of the ALEXA Mini allows the user to easily change the orientation of the camera while shooting. The camera also features multiple points for accessories for mounting creatively. Moreover, it only weighs about five pounds! All of this gives the operator additional control and makes the Mini extremely versatile.
Whether you’re flying it on a drone, mounting it on a gimbal system, or just in tight quarters, the Alexa Mini packs the familiar Alexa punch you need in a much smaller package.
Cinematographer Jason Hernandez used the ever modular ALEXA Mini to shoot this reel of several skaters. The Mini is so lightweight and compact, Hernandez was able to shoot this video handheld, while on a skateboard himself! No gimbal needed.
