VMI - Now Stocking ARRI's AMIRA

News Image
West-London based camcorder equipment supplier VMI has now added ARRI's AMIRA to its portfolio. Featuring the same sensor as the Alexa offering PL, EF or B4 mounts, 200fps slow motion, ProRes and super-ergonomic pickup and shoot dynamics, the AMIRA yet again justifies ARRI's decision not to pursue the 4K route.

The AMIRA is a "documentary-style" shoulder-mounted camera designed for single-operator use. It shoots in 1080p HD and 2K at up to 200 fps, claims the same 14-stop dynamic range as the Alexa and includes pre-loaded looks based on 3D LUTs for in-camera colour grading.

Features include:

• More than 14 stops lattitude
• Choice of PL/B4 or EOS lens mount
• 1920x1080 or 2K image format
• 4 x 128GB CFast 2.0 memory cards in standard kit - 8 hours of 2K 4:4:4
• Ergonomic shoulder mount operation
• Can carry the centre of gravity to balance large film lenses comfortably on the shoulder without requirement of additional weights.
• Pre-loaded LUTs for on set grading function
• Rugged quality and low power consumption

"Our opinion is with the ARRI Alexa's pro-focused build and simple post production workflow, that if the workflow is reliable enough to mean that you don't need to pay a DIT to be on location, then it shouldn't cost any more than using a RED and really go mainstream," a statement from VMI said.

The company's standard AMIRA kit is as follows:
• ARRI AMIRA camera body with High Speed 200fps Option and 2K/HD
• Choice of PL/B4 or EOS lens mount
• 3 x 128GB CFast 2.0 memory cards in standard kit - 6 hours of 2K 4:4:4
• ARRI Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
• 5 x Anton Bauer HD Dionic HC on-board batteries with dual hot-swap battery plates (XX mins operation per pair of batteries) TBA
• 1 x Anton Bauer 4 way charger
• ARRI Bridge Plate with 15mm & 19mm bars system
