Boasting an impressive dynamic range of more than 14 stops, ridiculously low noise levels and subtle highlight handling, not to mention natural colour rendering, life-like skin tones and frame rates of up to 200fps, the ARRI AMIRA Premium will leave you very impressed. So impressed, you’ll want to thank us personally for your ARRI AMIRA Rental.

ARRI AMIRA Features:

Life-like skin tones and natural colours

The ARRI AMIRA employs the same sensor as ARRI’s ALEXA cameras, and therefore boasts the same impressive image quality, recording in 1080p, 2K or UHD. Rendering natural, organic colours and skin tones with incredible texture and beauty, the ARRI AMIRA will capture vibrant, life-like images in any environment.

14-stop dynamic range with low noise

The ARRI AMIRA Premium offers superior image quality that looks great in any distribution format or resolution. This is thanks to a dynamic range of more than 14 stops and low noise levels as well as subtle highlight handling. The camera is suitable for various kinds of production, but in particular for documentary-style projects where handheld camerawork and single-operator usability are key factors.

200 fps with CFast 2.0 memory cards

The ARRI AMIRA records Rec 709 and Log C images, using ProRes LT, 422, 422HQ and 444 codecs, whilst speeds of up to 200 frames per second enable slow motion pictures of amazing clarity and detail to be captured. CFast 2.0 flash memory cards with rapid data rates make the route into postproduction as simple and fast as possible.
