AMIRA Revealed At IBC2013

News Image
One of the biggest stories on the ARRI stand at this year's IBC2013 was the release of the AMIRA; a new docu-style camera with CFast 2.0 workflows and in-camera grading.
Featuring preloaded looks based on 3D LUTs, as well as 200 fps slow motion, the AMIRA's attraction lies in the fact that it features the same sensor and quality as the ALEXA, capturing HD 1080 or 2K pictures and offering speeds of up to 200 fps, but estimated at a lower price.
AMIRA records Rec 709 or Log C images using ProRes LT, 422, 422HQ or 444 codecs.
CFast 2.0 is an open format, accessible to anyone and delivering quick transfer speeds, long recording times and compatibility with standard IT tools.
The AMIRA boots up quickly and can be used straight out of the bag with no setting up and no rigging.
"In the time it takes to lift the camera to an operator’s shoulder, it will be ready to record, making AMIRA perfect for ‘run-and-gun’ shoots where the action is unpredictable and the camerawork responsive," a statement from ARRI said.
"Integrated, motorised ND filters as well as zebra and false colour tools aid exposure control, while an advanced peaking function makes accurate focusing easy and swift."
A multi-viewfinder combines a high resolution OLED eyepiece with a fold-away LCD monitor that displays a live image when the eyepiece is not in use.
AMIRA comes with a number of preloaded 3D LUT-based looks that can be applied on set during the shoot.
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.
