ARRI Alexa XR Plus 4:3

ALEXA is a compact, lightweight and affordable digital camera that will redefine the limits of motion picture capture with ultra-fast workflows and image quality akin to 35mm film. From major motion pictures and high end dramas to commercials, music videos and mainstream TV, ALEXA suits a wide variety of applications and budgets.

More than just a camera, ALEXA represents an entire image pipeline. By combining proprietary ARRI technology with ubiquitous tools from industry-leading partners, ALEXA stands alone as the most complete and powerful digital production system ever built.

The ALEXA is based on the ARRI designed, fully encapsulated CMOS sensor, which offers a base sensitivity equivalent to 800 ASA, low noise and unsurpassed latitude that exceeds 13 stops. Nevertheless the main advantage of ALEXA will be an easy workflow.

ALEXA can internally record to Codex 500Gb drive. The card slot is located on the camera's left side. You can choose from the full range of Apple ProRes TM codecs & uncompressed ARRI Raw.

ALEXA is unique in that it can simultaneously record uncompressed HD video or uncompressed ARRIRAW data, output Apple QuickTime/ProRes files. This output versatility makes it ideal for a myriad of productions and workflows from television to feature films.
