Arri Amira 4K UHD
The versatile ARRI AMIRA Camera from Lightbulb Rentals features an ergonomic design well-suited for single-operator use or for extended shoulder-mounted operation. It includes the same 35mm sensor as the ALEXA and records HD 1080 images suitable for any distribution format. It combines exceptional image quality with affordable CFast 2.0 workflows. It features in-camera grading and preloaded 3D LUTs. Plus, the AMIRA can capture 100fps slow motion.
The AMIRA produces natural colors and skin tones with a dynamic range of up to 14+ stops. You can record 4K UHD 3840×2160, HD 1920×1080, Rec 709, ProRes recording on CFast 2.0 cards. It provides a native ISO of 800.
Enhanced HD-SDI outputs on the AMIRA allow the overlay of timecode and other information parameters which is seen within the optional viewfinder to also be seen on connected monitors. The manufacturer also states you can use an HD-SDI signal as further gunlock-like sync options.
Choose between interchangeable lens mounts: PL, B4 2/3″ or Canon EF.
The AMIRA boasts low noise levels and subtle highlights. You can also engage the pre-record function which is an internal buffer to perpetually record a loop. This may help when capturing wildlife or live situations so you can capture all the action.
Sporting sliding dovetails to perfect your shoulder balance, the ARRI AMIRA can be ready to shoot straight out of the bag which makes it ideal for documentary-style productions. The manufacturer boasts that the AMIRA camera boots up in about 13 seconds. How is that possible? All you need to do is attach a charged battery and your lens to begin shooting.
The AMIRA would also be ideal for second unit teams who tend to capture on the go.
Configure your handheld shooting style with ease with the addition of an ARRI MVF-1 viewfinder (included in the Premium kit or sold separately) which combines a high-resolution OLED eyepiece with a fold-away LCD monitor for a live view or camera settings. The display includes access to camera controls and settings. You won’t need to remove the camera from your shoulder to adjust the settings due to the helpful and ergonomic design of the camera and MVF-1 when used together.
You’ll be happy to learn that ND filters (0.6, 1.2, 2.1) are embedded in the camera. Also, the camera’s multi-channel audio includes accessible buttons. Plus, ARRI states that the camera boots up in about 13 seconds.
