If you’re looking for a camera rental that can handle highlights and shadows similar to film, renting the Arri Alexa is the way to go.
The Arri Alexa camera was designed to marry the worlds of film and digital acquisition and truly deserves to be called a digital cinema camera. ARRI has over 100 years of experience making high quality lenses, accessories and camera bodies and has used all of that expertise to deliver a camera system that combines the ruggedness and reliability of 35mm film camera bodies with the ease of use and practicality of a digital workflow. Most importantly, the camera delivers stunning film-like images due to a massive dynamic range that is tweaked to deliver natural highlight roll-offs and crisp blacks.
Under the hood, the camera boasts a 3.5K sensor capable of sending 12bit Arriraw to an external recorder or 1920×1080 ProRes to SXS cards. This flexibility in workflows means the camera can be used on the biggest of features or the smallest of webisodes with a workflow that makes sense for either type of project. The camera also has a native ISO of 800, making it great in low light and adding even more to the practicality factor.
The Alexa is not perfect by any means; one major drawback is the lack of high speed recording in the base package, something taken for granted with film cameras. Another consideration is that the ALEXA is essentially a 2K camera. With that in mind, for effects work or keying you might be better off renting another camera.
That said, this is one of the most requested cameras we offer here at Stray Angel for rent. It’s the kind of camera you can put some nice glass on, point in the right direction and get a great image every time and we think that’s a huge reason it’s been such a hit for ARRI.
