Arri Alexa 35

ALEXA 35 is the smallest fully featured ARRI production camera ever, packing the features and processing power of a larger ALEXA into a Mini-sized body that can record native 4K at up to 120 fps. Fast and easy operation is assured through numerous usability improvements and a simple menu structure that will be intuitively familiar to crews. ALEXA 35 is the best A-camera, B-camera, and action camera on the market, all rolled into one.

Arri Alexa 35 – raising the bar.

A new era begins

For over a decade the ARRI ALEXA camera family has set the gold standard for digital cinematography. Now, ALEXA 35 raises the bar even higher with a new Super 35 format 4.6K sensor and REVEAL Colour Science.


  • Featuring 17 stops of dynamic range – 2.5 more stops than previous ALEXA cameras, with filmic highlight roll-off
  • Easier to handle any lighting conditions, more flexible in post
  • The best possible source for HDR projects
  • Improved sensitivity: lower noise, higher ISO
  • EI 160 to EI 6400, with colour accuracy maintained at all exposure levels
  • Enhanced Sensitivity option for even cleaner images in low light
  • True-to-life colours
  • Natural and beautifully rendered skin tones
  • Subtler tonal variations for immersive and emotionally powerful images
  • Easy workflow with REVEAL Colour Science
  • More on-set creative control than ever before
  • ARRI Textures let you tune how ALEXA 35 ‘sees’ the world
    • ARRI Textures allow you to alter the amount and character of grain in the image, and the amount of contrast at different levels of detail, perceived as sharpness. Previous ALEXA cameras were pre-programmed with a default texture, but ALEXA 35 lets you choose from a menu of ARRI Textures, like selecting a film stock. Texture attributes can be very subtle and are best viewed on a large, high-quality HDR monitor. Example images below have been zoomed in around 500% from the original frame size, in order to illustrate the effect of ARRI Textures on fine detail.
  • Evolving menu of textures for different shooting environments and visual styles
  • Choose your digital film stock
  • 4.6K Super 35 sensor
  • Wide lens choice
    • ALEXA 35 can be used with a vast array of lenses–modern and vintage, anamorphic and spherical, Super 35 and large-format. If you want to shoot with ARRI cameras while fulfilling native 4K mandates, you now have an immeasurably broader lens choice.
  • 19 recording formats
    • A total of 19 ARRIRAW and Apple ProRes recording formats, incorporating efficient in-camera downsampling and anamorphic de-squeezing, allow you to optimize data rate, resolution, and other parameters, based on your individual needs.



Fast and easy operation

ALEXA 35 is the smallest fully featured ARRI production camera ever, packing the features and processing power of a larger ALEXA into a Mini-sized body that can record native 4K at up to 120 fps. Fast and easy operation is assured through numerous usability improvements and a simple menu structure that will be intuitively familiar to crews. ALEXA 35 is the best A-camera, B-camera, and action camera on the market, all rolled into one.

Designed for flexibility

Five interchangeable lens mounts, two scratch mics, and internal FSND filters make ALEXA 35 ideal for changing shooting requirements. ACs will love the body-mounted LBUS connector, built-in serial port for distance measuring devices, and hot-pluggable viewfinder.

New side display

Read status and change settings without a viewfinder via the new camera left-side display and jog wheel. Great for TRINITY, Steadicam, Easyrig, drones, and cranes.

HDR viewfinder

Familiar MVF-2 viewfinder and menu structure from ALEXA Mini LF; now with the option to switch to HDR viewing in the eyepiece.

Integrated electronic modules

The Power Distribution Module PDM-1 (center) offers seven extra power accessory outputs, while the Audio Extension Module AEM-1 (left) provides two incredibly clean microphone preamp channels for onboard audio recording, as well as extra power outputs.

Media bay for Compact Drive 1TB and 2TB

All existing Compact Drives 1TB will work with the ALEXA 35, and the new 2TB version brings incredibly high frame rates to uncompressed ARRIRAW recording.

Versatile connectivity

ALEXA 35 offers a host of inputs and outputs for all your accessories. Highlights include two completely independent 12G SDI outputs, an ethernet connector for real-time streaming metadata, and regulated 12 V and 24 V accessory power outputs.

B-Mount, the new 24 V standard

Improved mechanics, impressive metadata, and enough power for all your accessories.

Support for any situation

ARRI has crafted a new line of bespoke ALEXA 35 accessories that expand the camera’s capabilities and ensure maximum speed and versatility on set. In addition to the electronic modules, a complete new set of mechanical support items provides flexible options for any situation, scaling quickly and easily from a small and lightweight setup to a full-blown production configuration.
