Tech Tuesday: ARRI Alexa Mini
Any budding cinematographers out there will certainly drool over this mini-production camera from Arri. You know that brickoneil.com has brought you mini projection cameras for smartphones that you can use for mini movies, slide shows and so on, now you can shoot with this mini professional camera. This can be hand held or mounted, here is more from the maker:
The ALEXA Mini can be operated in a number of ways: by wireless remote control, as a normal camera with the ARRI MVF-1 multi viewfinder attached, or with an on-board monitor and controlled via the user button interface on the camera body. Light enough to be comfortably held at arm’s length in a hand rig, its compact size and extremely quiet operation also make it ideal for tight shooting conditions.
The symmetrical design permits filming in any orientation, including upside-down and in portrait mode, while multiple accessory points enable highly creative mounting solutions. In addition, the ALEXA Mini’s interchangeable lens mount can be replaced with any of those designed for the ARRI AMIRA, allowing the use of B4 video and EF mount stills lenses.
