The Alexa 35 camera is claimed to offer “industry-leading image quality at native 4K and 120fps”. It uses Arri’s first new sensor in 12 years, which delivers 2.5 stops more dynamic range (now 17 stops for improved HDR), better low light performance and richer colours.

It uses Reveal Colour Science to take full advantage of the sensor’s image quality, while Arri Textures enhances in-camera creativity - like selecting a film stock for adding grain and contrast. There are also new accessories and a complete new mechanical support system for the Alexa 35 platform.

The compact Super 35 camera has 1.5 stops more in the highlights and one stop more in the shadows than previous Alexa cameras, while retaining the naturalistic film-like highlight roll-off. Sophisticated stray-light suppression ensures that the sensor captures the full contrast range and character of each lens. Together, these should make it easier to handle any lighting conditions, increase flexibility in post and provide the best source for high dynamic range projects.

ISO settings now go from EI 160 to EI 6400, while an optional Enhanced Sensitivity Mode can be used between EI 2560 and EI 6400, producing cleaner images in low light.

Reveal Colour Science is backwards compatible. It can process Arriraw footage captured by Alexa LF and Mini LF cameras so that the Alexa 35 and Arri’s large-format cameras can be combined on set and can also share LogC4 LUTs in post.
