Zacuto’s First Look: The ARRI AMIRA
The new ARRI AMIRA documentary style camera made a big splash at IBC earlier this year. The AMIRA features ALEXA image quality, single-user ergonomics and perfect shoulder balance, the cost efficient in-camera grading, and the industry standard ARRI rugged quality and reliability. A perfect match for Zacuto who are often credited with having similar high standards.
With the same sensor and outstanding image quality as the ARRI ALEXA, AMIRA records impressive HD 1080 or 2K pictures, suitable for any distribution format. With a dynamic range of more than 14 stops, low noise levels, subtle highlight handling, natural color rendering, breathtaking skin tones and speeds of up to 200 fps, AMIRA will deliver stunning, life-like images. AMIRA has minimal start-up time and can be used straight out of the bag by a single user. Sliding dovetails allow the camera to be perfectly shoulder-balanced for comfortable handheld shooting, while the innovative multi-viewfinder combines a high resolution OLED eyepiece with a fold-away LCD monitor that provides both a live view and full access to camera functions.
Zacuto’s own Steve and Jens had a first look at the impressive AMIRA with Stefan from ARRI.
