Alexa Mini

Compact, lightweight and self-contained, the ARRI ALEXA Mini is a versatile additional tool in the ALEXA camera range.

Designed for specialised shot-making, the ALEXA Mini features a super-lightweight carbon body and titanium PL mount, frame rates of 0.75-200 fps, in-camera recording of ARRIRAW and ProRes (including 4K UHD) and state-of-the-art integrated functions.

The ALEXA Mini’s camera body has been designed with new-generation brushless gimbals such as Movi or Ronin rigs in mind.

The ALEXA Mini has an internal integrated lens motor control system that allows use of the new CForce Mini motors for remote focus, iris and zoom operation.

The camera kit also comes with a WCU-4 Wireless Hand Control Unit that allows control of not only* focus, iris and zoom but also partial control of key settings on the ALEXA Mini. The easy-to-read lens and camera information is available on the large 3” display.

The ALEXA Mini can also be fitted with an optional Leica M Mount to take our Leica M 0.8 Series lenses or ARRI LPL mount to use the ARRI Signature Primes**

*One CForce Mini Motor included in Alexa Mini Kit – extra motors available at cost


**Please request at time of booking as fitting of mount must be done at The Vision House
