Posted on May 12, 2011 by Definition Magazine

The Alexa M – developed with Vince Pace and James CameronARRI is developing a further model in the ALEXA family of cameras: the ALEXA M – a new, remote solution consisting of a separate camera head and body.

At the NAB 2011 Arri press conference it was also announced that the Cameron Pace Group, James Cameron and Vince Pace will be entering an agreement to co-develop the camera system and as a result that Group will have exclusive commercial access to the first systems to be made available in September 2011, Serial production and sales release of the ALEXA M to all customers will commence during the first quarter of 2012.”

ALEXA M is tailored for action photography, tight corner shots and 3D productions. Based on proven ARRI technologies, the M model features the same great image quality that has made ALEXA so popular.

The M head is optimized for small size and low weight, offering the flexibility when used on lightweight 3D setups. Multiple mounting points on top and bottom allow an easy setup onto existing 3D rigs. Head and body are connected with a fibre optic cable that can also be used for powering the head, depending on distance. The back end provides various recording options, just like the standard ALEXA does: images, sound and metadata can be recorded onto SxS cards or on external recording devices, offering different kinds of workflows.

ALEXA M has a PL mount, works perfectly with all existing 35mm lenses and is compatible with a wide range of ARRI accessories.
