ARRI introduces AMIRA, a new documentary-style camera that combines high image quality and affordable workflows with an ergonomic design optimized for single-operator use and extended shoulder-mounted operation. It is said to have ALEXA image quality up to 200 fps recording HD 1080 or 2K pictures with a dynamic range of more than 14 stops, low noise levels, subtle highlight handling, and natural color rendering.
AMIRA records Rec 709 or Log C images using ProRes LT, 422, 422HQ or 444 codecs. By recording to in-camera CFast 2.0, an open format flash memory with quick data rates, the route into postproduction is made as simple as possible. AMIRA comes with a number of preloaded 3D LUT-based looks that can be applied on set during the shoot for cost-efficient in-camera grading. Alternatively, productions can custom-build their own 3D LUTs in external grading systems, load them into the camera during prep, and even modify them in-camera while filming.
