In a nutshell
Complementing the ALEXA range is the compact, lightweight and self-contained ARRI ALEXA Mini. This versatile video camera offers far more freedom and opportunity for creativity.

But this camera is more than just lightweight. It offers unparalleled image quality thanks to its 35mm CMOS sensor, 4K UHD ProRes images and frame rates of up to 200fps. The Mini may be compact, but it’s strong, sturdy and built for any environment. It is the go-anywhere broadcast companion, easy to fit into backpacks without compromising on performance.

In the hands
Super lightweight and easy to handle, the Mini employs a number of unique design solutions and state-of-the-art materials to deliver ruggedness, performance and agility. A lightweight carbon housing, solid titanium PL mount and super-stable titanium sensor mount reinforce the famed trustworthy ARRI build quality. Versatile and nimble to use, solid on set, this camera really doesn’t do limits.

You can now go above and beyond, thanks to the ARRI ALEXA Mini’s magnificent compact body and optimal design, supplemented with new-generation brushless gimbals, multicopters and other specialised rigs. Its outstanding low-light performance means the Mini is also ideal for underwater work. There are underwater housings currently in-development for the ARRI ALEXA Mini by leading manufacturers.

Workflows can now be identical with the option to record ProRes or uncompressed ARRIRAW, either in-camera to CFast 2.0 cards or to a specially-designed external Codex recorder.

Then there’s the ARRI ALEXA Mini’s symmetrical design. It offers the freedom to film in any orientation, including upside-down in portrait mode, facilitated with multiple accessory points for creative mounting options. The Mini’s interchangeable lens mount can also be substituted with any other lens designed for ARRI AMIRA. This permits the use of B4 video and EF mount stills lenses.

The ARRI ALEXA Mini offers a whole range of versatile mounting and shooting options. This is thanks to innovative design features such as wireless remote control, either on-board motor operated (via the user button interface on the camera body) or via the ARRI MVF-1 multi viewfinder attachment.

The advantage of its super lightweight carbon body means a comfortable, easy to operate camera in a hand rig at arm’s length. Compact and powerful, it is id
