[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]The Alexa Mini LF comes with a large format sensor (36.70 x 25.54mm), the same 4.5K ALEV III (A2X) CMOS sensor as the ALEXA LF. LPL mount and new Codex Compact Drives. It allows internal recording of MXF / ARRIRAW or MXF / Apple ProRes in a variety of formats. It features a MVF-2 high contrast viewfinder, the same high-contrast HD OLED display, color science, and ARRICAM eyepiece as seen in ALEXA's LF's EVF-2[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]Compared to the Alexa Mini, the design has changed only slightly. New features are easier access to the storage media as well as the EVF connection, which now sits on the left hand side of the camera. Arri have added 12- and 24-volt connections, a six-pin audio connection and six new programmable buttons on the left side. Despite these additional connections and features the Alexa Mini LF has manged to look tidier than the sister model.[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=black][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]The Mini LF is built for all conditions. The carbon body allows the Mini LF to operate in temperatures ranging from -20 ° C to + 45 ° C (-4 ° F to + 113 ° F).[/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=black][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]The Mini LF is compatible with almost all ALEXA Mini accessories. 12 V and 24 V accessory power; a new 6-pin audio connector; built-in microphones; and improved WiFi. [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]Two front-facing microphones offer the opportunity to record general sound, which are useful for synchronizing the audio tracks in editing.[/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]The multiview finder has been expanded. It still features HD OLED display with ARRICAM eyepiece. But it now measures four-inches and can be folded-out. The display can be switched between camera image and menu. The MVF-2 can be connected externally using a CoaX Press VF cable.[/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]Unfortunately the CFast slots have been removed. Therefore Arri has implemented the new Codex Compact Drive. This currently holds up to 1TB (about 53 minutes in Apple ProRes). The associated card reader is compatible with current PC or Mac without requiring an additional license.[/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]Like the ALEXA Mini, the camera stores its [color=#5fa032][color=#5fa032]ARRIRAW[/color]   in MXF containers. Instead of a MOV the Apple ProRes is stored in an MXF file. ARRIRAW file szie by 40% during downloading or in the later workflows is available on the ALEXA Mini LF. HDE reduces files by 40 percent without loss of quality when downloading ARRIRAW. [/color]ARRIRAW Open Gate 4.5K can be encoded at 24 fps on a modern MacBook Pro.[/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/size][/color]
[color=#111111][size=2][font=Arial, sans-serif]ARRI Look Library Support is currently not available. However, this should be added with a later update. High-speed frame rates of 150 fps are only possible with the ALEXA LF. Pre-recording and interval-recording are not available.[/font][/size][/color]
