ARRI Announces ALEXA LF 4K Full Frame Camera

AlexalfBLOG

ARRI combines ALEXA image quality with the largest full frame sensor of any cinema camera on the market for the true 4K ALEXA LF, along with new Signature Prime lenses and the LPL lens mount.

The ALEXA LF’s 36.7 x 25.54mm sensor allows for a maximum resolution of 4448 x 3096 px. To take full advantage of the larger imaging surface, ARRI engineered the LPL mount, which is basically a PL mount with a wider diameter and shorter flange distance to accommodate for ARRI’s Signature Prime lenses whose fast T-stop, light weight, and cinematic bokeh wouldn’t have been possible in a standard PL lens.

The LPL mount and ALEXA LF are compatible with existing PL mount lenses with a PL to LPL adapter. The new Signature Primes were designed for the LPL mount with the LF sensor in mind, but the camera can support full-frame PL lenses with the aforementioned adapter and smaller format PL lenses with a crop factor.

The new camera still supports the usual wide variety of recording formats seen across the ALEXA platform, including ProRes and uncompressed ARRIRAW. You’ll also get a maximum frame rate of 150fps in 4k with the camera’s LF 2.39:1 recording option, and 90fps at maximum resolution.

The ALEXA LF body is only a couple of millimeters bigger than the ALEXA SXT, and maintains the ALEXA sensor’s famous colorimetry and pixel size despite its larger format- making this camera pretty much devoid of any compromises in design or quality. So, you’ll still get the same skin tones, color reproduction, and overall “character” from this camera as other ALEXA models, only now in 4K.

Expected ship date for the ALEXA LF is March 2018. Purchase the ALEXA LF camera system in the following configurations:
