The Allrounder

The ALEXA XT Plus (XT = Xtended Technology) is the most versatile and flexible of the ALEXA XT camera range, and thus a true allrounder. With an integrated wireless receiver for camera and lens remote control, built-in tilt and roll sensors, a DNxHD license and additional connectors for camera and lens control, signal output and accessory power supply, the ALEXA XT Plus offers the best value for anyone who can live without an optical viewfinder.

Like all ALEXA XT cameras it has a Super 35 sensor with Open Gate and 4:3 sensor modes, in-camera ARRIRAW up to 120 fps, ProRes 4444 XQ, ProRes 3.2K, internal ND filter, Lens Data System, integrated CDL capture, ARRIRAW checksum, included anamorphic de-squeeze and high speed licenses, new viewfinder mounting bracket as well as a new, super silent fan.

The ALEXA XT Plus is available either as a complete camera package or as an upgrade to the basic ALEXA XT.
