Product Description

The ALEXA platform is the most complete digital camera system ever built, with different camera models for everyday shooting as well as specialty applications. The ALEXA XT M (XT = Xtended Technology, M = Modular) is a flexible solution consisting of a separate camera head and body; it is tailored for action and aerial photography, tight corner shots and 3D productions, and any application or environment that would challenge a full-sized ALEXA. Based on cutting edge ARRI technologies, the M model features the same sensor, image processing, build quality, efficient workflows and exceptional image quality that have made ALEXA such a worldwide success. The head and body of the M are connected with a fiber optic cable, which in a hybrid form can also be used for powering the head. Weighing well under 3 kg, the compact front end offers multiple mounting points and versatile maneuverability. Meanwhile the body provides various options for recording images, sound and metadata, accommodating all workflows of the standard ALEXA XT.

Like all ALEXA XT cameras it has in-camera ARRIRAW recording, internal ND filtration, a 4:3 Super 35 sensor, integrated CDL capture, LDS PL mount, included anamorphic de-squeeze and high speed licenses as well as a new, super silent fan.
