Compact, lightweight, and self-contained - ARRI ALEXA Mini is the small and versatile allrounder in the ARRI camera family.

The symmetrical design permits filming in any orientation, including upside-down and in portrait mode, while multiple accessory points enable highly creative mounting solutions. In addition, ALEXA Mini Camera comes with a series of interchangeable lens mount, allowing the use of B4 video, EF mount stills lenses, or with the even ARRI Signature Primes with the LPL mount for ALEXA Mini.

Small and Excellent

An ALEXA Mini can be operated in a number of ways: by wireless remote control, as an A-camera with the ARRI MVF-1 multi viewfinder attached, or with an on-board monitor and controlled via the user button interface on the camera body.

Designed with new-generation brushless gimbals, multicopters and other specialized rigs in mind, ALEXA Mini is light enough to be comfortably held at arm’s length in a hand rig, while its compact size also makes it ideal for tight shooting conditions, as well as underwater, aerial, car, action, and 3D shoots. The ALEXA Mini is a go-anywhere tool, easy to transport in backpacks or as carry-on luggage.

With an ALEXA Mini you can literally shoot everywhere with the best image quality.

ALEXA Mini Studio Set

The compact and lightweight ALEXA Mini is a highly versatile tool on set. In some productions, it is used as a second or third camera, while in others it is the main camera throughout a shoot. As a result, it is frequently moved from one configuration to another. Any time savings that can be made during these transitions will have a big impact on the daily shooting schedule. 

Therefore, ARRI has developed a studio set for ALEXA Mini. Its core is the ARRI Compact Bridge Plate CBP-1, a base plate with an integrated sliding bridge plate and shoulder pad. This allows for rapid, tool-less transitions between configurations - for example from TRINITY, MAXIMA, or Steadicam stabilizers to tripod heads or an operator’s shoulder. 

The Rear Accessory Bracket RAB-1 offers flexible attachment options for the Power Splitting Box Mk II, a power distribution unit available in Gold Mount and V-Mount versions, while the Side Accessory Bracket SAB-1 provides a simple interface for mounting accessories towards the rear of the camera. Many previously released ARRI camera accessories for the ALEXA Mini are fully compatible with the studio set.Arri ALEXA Mini Camera Body Studio
