The companion

ALEXA Mini is a versatile additional tool in the ARRI ALEXA camera range, combining a compact and lightweight form factor with the same image quality as other ALEXA models. Designed for specialized shots and for working with gimbals and drones, the ALEXA Mini perfectly complements a full ALEXA shooting kit.

To maintain ARRI's rugged build quality in such a small camera body, unique design solutions such as environmentally sealed electronics, a lightweight carbon housing and a solid titanium PL mount have been incorporated. Nimble in use and hardy on set, ALEXA Mini can be operated by wireless remote control, as a normal camera with the ARRI MVF-1 multi viewfinder attached, or with an on-board monitor and controlled via the camera’s user button interface.
