ALEXA XT Plus

ALEXA XT Plus

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 in-camera ARRIRAW recording, internal ND filtration, a 4:3 Super 35 sensor, Open Gate sensor mode, integrated CDL capture, LDS PL mount, new viewfinder mounting bracket, included anamorphic de-squeeze and high speed licenses 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.
