ALEXA Sample Footage

ARRI provides sample footage, shot on ALEXA LF, ALEXA SXT and ALEXA 65.
This site provides an overview of the footage available.

The shots are intended for anyone who wants to test a workflow with ALEXA ProRes and/or ARRIRAW files. For example, to test LUTs for converting from LogC to Rec709, or to check how each of the different formats the ALEXA camera has to offer is best handled in different editing systems.
Please note that this sample footage was created for workflow evaluation purposes.

ALEXA LF Footage
For ALEXA LF we shot samples in our Munich Showroom; for reasons of comparability we repeated the same scene over and over with different recoding modes. 
We’ve used all three sensor modes and shot all possible recording resolutions in their respective formats (ProRes 4444 or ARRIRAW).
The clips have been shot with the following settings (unless otherwise stated): 24fps, 800ASA, 3200K; shooting gamma for all clips is Log C. Most clips run for about ten seconds each with 2-channel audio.
You can get hold of the full set of metadata by extracting it from the corresponding file’s header using
ARRI Meta Extract.
