Combining the compact size and low weight of the popular ARRI ALEXA Mini with the large-format ALEXA LF sensor, ALEXA Mini LF brings exciting new creative possibilities to ARRI's large-format camera system. ALEXA Mini LF is a go-anywhere camera that has a small footprint, but delivers big images. Recording the same formats as ALEXA LF, but to the new, state-of-the-art and cost-effective Codex Compact Drive, ALEXA Mini LF is a robust and reliable camera that features internal MXF/ARRI RAW and MXF/Apple ProRes recording, three internal motorised FSND filters, 12V power input, extra 12V and 24V accessory power outputs, compatibility with ALEXA Mini accessories, additional user and lock buttons, improved WiFi, built-in microphones, easier access to connectors and media, and a new MVF-2 high-contrast HD viewfinder.

Following in ARRI’s long tradition of manufacturing rugged, reliable cameras, ALEXA Mini LF is built for a prolonged life of tough usage in challenging professional conditions. With a hard-wearing carbon body and a uniquely wide temperature range of -20° C to +45° C (-4° F to +113° F), each ALEXA Mini LF is put through a vigorous stress test before leaving the ARRI factory and is then supported by ARRI’s global service centres.

ALEXA Mini LF allows internal recording of MXF/ARRIRAW or MXF/Apple ProRes in a variety of formats and aspect ratios, and is the first camera to feature the new Compact Drive recording media from Codex, an ARRI technology partner. Small and lightweight, but solidly built, the 1 TB drive offers a reliable, affordable recording solution. With it comes a USB-C Compact Drive Reader that can be used without any extra software or licenses on Mac or Windows computers. In addition, a Compact Drive Adapter can be used in any dock that accepts SXR Capture Drives, potentially more than doubling download speeds. Another development from Codex now makes large-format shooting a more practical and budget-friendly option: Codex High Density Encoding (HDE) uses sophisticated, loss-less encoding to reduce ARRIRAW file sizes by around 40% during downloading or later in the workflow. This lowers storage costs, shortens transfer times, and speeds up workflows, which translates to a direct 40% saving in time and money. HDE is free-of-charge for use with Codex Capture or Compact Drives, openly shared, and fast: ARRIRAW Open Gate 4.5K can be encoded at 24 fps on a modern MacBook Pro.

At the heart of ARRI’s new MVF-2 viewfinder for the ALEXA Mini LF are the same high-contrast HD OLED display, colour science, and ARRICAM eyepiece as in ALEXA LF’s EVF-2 viewfinder, allowing optimal judgement of focus, dynamic range, and colour on set. In addition, the MVF-2 features a large, 4” flip-out monitor that can display the image or the camera control menu, providing maximum flexibility for different camera configurations. The MVF-2 can be used on either side of the camera and connects via a new, flexible, and reliable CoaXPress VF cable that has a reach of up to 10 m for remote camera operations. It features a refined user interface, a built-in eyepiece lens heater for de-fogging, and a built-in headphones connector.
