Shoots Apple Prores 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 including 4K UHD

This is a stunning high-end camera shooting to CFast 2.0 cards in a reliable format using native Apple FCP Prores 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 format for easy ingest and editing.

Our opinion is with the ARRI Alexa’s pro-focused build and simple post production workflow, that if the workflow is reliable enough to mean that you don’t need to pay a DIT to be on location, then it shouldn’t cost any more than using a RED and really go mainstream!

A Super 35 CMOS Bayer sensor can shoot uncompressed 2K resolutions output in native Prores 4:2:2 onto internal SxS card flash memory.

As of 2015, The Amira now offers the ability to record all ProRes codecs in Ultra High Definition 3840 x 2160 resolution directly onto the in-camera CFast 2.0 cards, at up to 60 fps.

You can shoot high end 1080p video with the camera and have it encoded in Final Cut Pro native codecs (Apple’s ProRes 4:2:2 and ProRes 4:4:4) to allow editing as you shoot without conversion – a rarity in the cinematic HD world.
