CODEX + ALEXA MINI


The ALEXA Mini combines a compact, lightweight form factor with the ALEXA’s renowned image quality. To achieve the small size whilst maintaining the quality that the ALEXA is known for, ARRI has come up with some unique solutions including a lightweight carbon housing and a solid titanium PL mount. The ALEXA Mini has a 4:3 sensor and an automatic de-squeeze mode for anamorphic productions. It can shoot at frame rates of 0.75 - 200 fps.

The ALEXA Mini records ProRes or uncompressed ARRIRAW in-camera to CFast 2.0 cards.
