We've seen plenty of cool products in the last two years of NAB, but they were largely consisted of "under the hood" upgrades and useful little gadgets. This year, though, ARRI wasn't playing around when it introduced its large format Alexa LF system, which is comprised of the camera, the signature prime lenses, LPL lens mount (ARRI's new mount), and PL-to-LPL adapter.

Able to capture native 4.5K, the Alexa LF camera improves upon others in the line with the large format 4K version of the Alexa sensor, which has all of the features of the original just at twice the size. The other half of the large format system is the 16 signature primes that range from 12mm to 280mm, all of which are equipped with ARRI's new LPL mount.

  • 36.7 x 25.54mm maximum sensor size
  • 4448x3096 maximum capture resolution
  • 150fps possible in 2.39x1 4448x1856 ARRI Raw
  • ALEV IIII Sensor
  • A2X layout
  • Brand new LPL lens mount
  • Ships with LPL to PL adapter
  • 44mm flange focal distance
  • 12mm wider and longer than standard Alexa
