ARRI ALEXA HIREMarc Ehrenbold
Highly regarded as the Mercedes Benz of the filmmaking industry, Arri has produced cameras and lenses known for its unparalleled precision and quality. The ARRI Alexa is simply just that and more and is available to hire.
The launch of the Alexa created such a profound influence on the industry, setting the bar for digital motion picture productions with its stunning image quality and highly efficient workflows.All types of episodic TV shows, commercials, documentaries, feature films, and highly acclaimed, international drama series quickly embraced the Alexa.
Engineers at ARRI worked hard to make the Alexa a true masterpiece of German engineering.
Everything is intuitive and well thought out, from the solid feel of the buttons and their placement, to using the camera’s electronic viewfinder. With smart and simple controls, operating the Alexa is smooth and easy. The menu interface is fast and is more intuitive and a lot easier to operate than the majority of EPP/ENG style camera out there. ARRI really did design this camera with the operator in mind.
The intelligent display on the Alexa’s viewfinder shows the information and is easily accessible to the operator or to an assistant at the other side of the camera. Despite the camera’s breadbox design, it sits comfortably on the operator’s shoulder, with the eyepiece requiring little or no adjustment.
The Alexa is simply perfect for handheld work, the viewfinder and recording controls are placed right where it should be. The camera can still capture images 15 seconds after being powered down and turns right back up when the power button is pressed. This very smart feature ensures nothing is missed during shooting.
The display alerts the operator of the shutdown by counting down after holding down the power button, making accidental power downs remotely possible. The Alexa has always been chosen for its superb overall image and future-proof quality, regardless of the delivery format.
Images captured by the Alexa are already in HDR or High Dynamic Range because of the unmatched exposure latitude. Able to shoot up to high frame rates of 120 fps, the Alexa can also offer material in High Frame Rate for superior temporal resolution. Overall, the Alexa is the safest camera for asset longevity, regardless of what filming standard might be developed in the future.
The Alexa has been used in numerous, critically-acclaimed Hollywood film productions and TV series.Films like the sci-fi thriller Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, Disney’s Maleficent, and Thor: The Dark Worlds, among others. In the TV series category, the Alexa was extensively used in HBO’s Girls, Game of Thrones, BBC One’s Death in Paradise, Downtown Abbey, just to name a handful.
