Arri has refreshed its Alexa camera lineup with the launch of an XT range of devices.
The Alexa XT, Alexa XT M, Alexa XT Plus and Alexa XT Studio cameras will replace all previous models except for the original Alexa.
Arri said the changes made its flagship range of cameras “smaller, lighter and more affordable”.
The Alexa XT models come with the new XR Module, a side panel that was co-developed with Codex to replace the previous SxS Module.
Alexas can now capture Arriraw up to 120fps onto 512GB XR Capture Drives.
In addition to Arriraw, ProRes or DNxHD can also be captured to the XR Capture Drive for longer recording times as well as ProRes 4444 recording at 120fps.
Owners of existing Alexa cameras will be able to purchase individual upgrades that deliver most of the features of the XT configuration.
The in-camera Filter Module IFM-1 allows Alexa XT models to be rated at the base sensitivity of EI 800 without the need for external neutral density (ND) filters.
Each Alexa XT model is equipped with a 4:3 sensor.
All Alexa XT models are also equipped with an Arri LDS (lens data system) mount.
