ARRI Alexa Mini

Lightweight carbon-fibre camera body in small form factor housing with 35mm PL mount recording prores up to 200fps onto CFAST2 Cards.

The versatile Alexa Mini camcorder can be used in a variety of configurations, so have spec’d this camcorder to also include the electronic viewfinder and 5″ Starlight OLED monitor as part of the package without additional charge.

Consider the Integrated WLCS option

The standard camera package works extremely well with the 3-axis wireless lens control system available at additional charge with compact F-Force motors.

This permits full remote control of all of the camera’s functions plus comprehensive 3-axis lens control of the lens in one convenient package.  We have chosen the CForce Mini package with smaller more compact motors for this system, as it will often be used in a portable environment or gimbal setup.

We envisage the versatile Alexa Mini camcorder to be used in a variety of configurations, so have spec’d this camcorder to also include the electronic viewfinder and 5″ Starlight OLED monitor as part of the package without additional charge.
