Nuevo firmware 3.0 de la Alexa Mini

By | ALEXA Mini, ARRi, Movi M10, Movi M15, Sin categoría | No Comments
With the ARRI ALEXA Mini slowly but surely rolling out across the world, the newest firmware updates are doing the same.

The SUP 3.0 firmware for the Mini is a big one if you’re looking for higher capacity cards, as the Lexar 128GB 3600x, and more importantly the 256GB 3600x are now supported. They’ve also just announced that a 90-day Beta has been started which will allow anyone to test out the 4:3 2.8K ProRes mode for that time without having to plop down any cash. Here’s a look at everything new in SUP 3.0:

  • Intervalometer: for sophisticated time lapse recordings
  • Stop Motion Mode: for stop motion animation and control of shutter timing when ALEXA Mini is used on a motion control system
  • Support for Lexar LC 128GB and LC 256GB 3600x (!) cards. Note: 64GB will NOT be supported, same as 3400x or 3500x cards.
  • Viewfinder status overlay enhancements, other usability improvements and improved support for accessories
  • Sensor clock tuning on timecode input signal: to insure ALEXA Mini stays in sync with the timecode source.

If you’d like to try out the new 4:3 mode, you’ll have to sign up over on the ARRI site here. More info on the 4:3 and 2x de-squeeze modes:

SUP 3.0 contains a public beta release of the 4:3 ProRes 2.8K recording mode and a 2x anamorphic desqueeze for all EVF and monitoring outputs.

Please note that while the image resolution for 4:3 2.8K is 2880 x 2160 the recorded resolution is 2944 x 2160. The additional border is due to the ALEXA Mini’s ProRes encoder that handles multiples of 128 more efficiently. The remaining 32-pixel boundary left and right to the image is filled with white pixels in the Beta and will be black in the final release. The active image are flagged in Quicktime meta-data. Please make sure the extra border is cropped off the image prior to scaling the image as the scaling operation may spill white border pixel into the active image area. 

To participate in the beta test and activate the beta features an ALEXA Mini 4:3 Beta License Key must be downloaded from the ARRI License Shop http://alshop.arri.de. The license key is free of charge and terminates automatically 90 days after installation. Please be aware that although we have done release testing of the beta features they are not final yet and for testing purposes only. We do not guarantee proper operation of these features. Feel free to provide beta test feedback to minibeta@arri.de. The full 4:3 feature set including the 6:5 and 8:9 recording modes will be released with SUP 4.0 and require a chargeable ALEXA Mini 4:3 License Key.

Nueva Alexa Mini

No nos lo esperábamos, pero ARRI ha dado un golpe de efecto con la salida de su nueva cámara!!

La empresa alemana ha sacado a la luz su nueva apuesta, la ALEXA Mini. Con esta cámara, Arri intentará ganar un terreno que tenía olvidado, las grabaciones con gimbal (MoVI, Ronin,…) y con drones o multicóteros. El diseño de la cámara es más compacto y ligero, ya que la carcasa está fabricada en fibra de carbono.

ARRI nos presenta una ALEXA Mini, con la misma calidad de imagen que la ALEXA pero en un cuerpo de cámara mucho más reducido. De este modo, lo que intenta ARRI es que no se utilicen cámaras de otros fabricantes para grabar planos más específicos donde se necesite utilizar el MoVI M15 de Freefly, tanto en tierra como en octocóptero.

Cuenta con un sensor 4:3 y compresión Prores y ARRIRAW, dependiendo de los fps. Graba ene tarjetas CFast 2.0, o en Codex, grabador externo capaz de soportar hasta 4 Alexa Mini a la vez.

ARRI proporciona conectividad mediante WIFI para sistema IOS y Android, con los cuales se puede controlar de forma remota.Movi M15 + ALEXA Mini                        ALEXA Mini
