Here I am in action with the trusted Arri Alexa camera and 24-290mm Optimo zoom lens.
The Alexa has fast become the digital camera of choice. It’s rapidly now replacing what would have been previously shot on 35mm film cameras. Even Roger Deakins is using it!
The Arri name and way the camera is physically built and set up plays a huge part in why it’s so popular amongst the filming elite. It’s more like real camera than a computer, the images it capable of producing are beautiful.
The Alexa is not just a piece a tech, but a real Tool a Cinematographer can use to produce artistic images and achieve the Directors vision.
The Optimo 24-290mm lens is a very versatile piece of kit. As the numbers tell you it’s relatively wide and long enough to pick out a mid shot from 60m+ away.
5 Top Tips Shooting on Alexa:
1) You can accurately measure the Exposure using False Colour. Easy access via a button on the view finder or can set up 1 of 3 user buttons on operators side.
2) You can turn the Peaking ON and OFF to check focus and quality of your image. Easy access via a button on the viewfinder or can set up 1 of 3 user buttons on operators side.
