The ALEXA AMINI LF combines the compact size and low weight of the popular ALEXA Mini with the large-format ALEXA LF sensor, ARRI ALEXA Mini LF brings exciting new creative possibilities to ARRI’s large-format camera system. Robust and reliable, it provides the best overall image quality for large-format shooting, and features three internal motorized FSND filters, 12 V power input, extra power outputs, a new Codex Compact Drive, and a new MVF-2 high-contrast HD viewfinder.

ARRI’s large-format camera system launched in 2018 and is based around a 4.5K version of the ALEXA sensor, which is twice the size and offers twice the resolution of ALEXA cameras in 35 format. This allows filmmakers to explore their own take on the large-format look, with improvements on the ALEXA sensor’s famously natural colorimetry, pleasing skin tones, low noise, and suitability for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) workflows. ALEXA Mini LF now joins the existing system elements: the high-speed ALEXA LF camera, ARRI Signature Prime lenses, LPL lens mount, PL-to-LPL adapter, and Lens Data System LDS-2. The combined feature sets and form factors of ARRI’s two large-format cameras encompass all on-set requirements.

Used on countless commercials, movies, and tv shows, the ARRI ALEXA MINI LF has quickly become the industry standard in large-format recording. Check out the ARRI website for credits, including: 1917, OUTLANDER, NOMAD, KING FURY 2, and THE WHITE TIGER.

The ALEXA Mini LF utilizes the same ALEV 3 A2X sensor as the ALEXA LF, though the electronics of the Mini LF have been modified to meet the size, power, and cooling requirements of such a compact camera system. While this does not affect image quality in any way, it is important to note that maximum framerates achievable in different recording formats are limited, compared to the full-size ALEXA LF:
