A new era in digital cinematography

For over a decade the ARRI ALEXA camera family has set the gold standard for digital cinematography. Now, ALEXA 35 raises the bar even higher with a new Super 35 format 4.6K sensor and REVEAL Color Science.

ALEXA 35 in use


Joe Katches


What I look for first and foremost in a camera is flexibility. Which is why the ALEXA 35 as my main camera was an easy choice. It provides the most flexibility in dynamic range, color science, and ergonomics. I couldn’t get the camera to clip in the highlights or shadows, the colors were accurate and beautifully rendered, and the size of the camera is user friendly. Without a doubt this camera is a cinematographer’s dream come true.


Robert McLachlan


I was dropped in on short notice to do two episodes of “1923” and had no prior experience with ALEXA 35 but was very pleased by its performance. The increased dynamic range over the original sensor was very welcome and I made full use of it. The form factor is very good. We ran five ALEXA 35’s all the time and used them in a variety of conveyances including crane and Steadicam work but also on an arm on a boat off the coast of Capetown and it worked flawlessly. It’s really an improvement over the classic ALEXA, that I had so much experience with.


Adam Suschitzky, BSC


I was quite simply BLOWN AWAY by the images this camera helped produce. To say this is a game changer sounds cliché, but it is true! The sensor is outstanding, giving one the toolset to produce such subtle imagery day and night. I’d say that we could also fly through the scenes in the grade far faster than ever before, partly from the marvellous way the sensor reproduces the tones of any given scene so elegantly. There was far less need to window all the highlights or bring detail back into the shadows as it was all there to start with.


Jonas Abenstein


We had a really great setup with ALEXA 35 and anamorphic lenses that worked well both in the arm car and handheld without any major conversions. But the camera itself is really amazing. The colorist was also very excited about the huge dynamic range of the new ALEXA 35 sensor

Director of Photography

The image out of the ALEXA 35 is incredible. The extra stops in the highlights and new color science struck me as the most stand out parts of the new sensor. There is so much depth in the image—I couldn’t believe how much it could be pushed and pulled in the grade. The ALEXA 35 changes the future of Super 35 productions. It is the new standard.

Mike Valentine BSC


As a director, I feel there is now almost no setup I could imagine where I would have to compromise my approach to shooting a scene.


Muko Tirmik


To me, a camera isn’t just a mechanical machine, it has a way of thinking. The ALEXA 35 made us feel safe with its amazingly helpful features. The data integrity and the 17 stops of dynamic range gave us fantastic results. With the help of some specific HDR shooting techniques and 3D lighting setups, I was able to retain detail in all the highlights and all the shadows.

When I saw how the camera was reacting to low light conditions, I shot only with firelight at 3200 EI. Another setup with UV lights had absolutely no reading on the light meter. In both situations the skin tones and textures came out very well.

The way the new sensor sees color is astonishing to me, even after using ARRI cameras for the last few years...In scorching African sunshine, the highlight roll-off is really nice and you still see detail in the shadows.

James Friend ASC, BSC


The new sensor produced images that were extremely malleable, with staggering latitude. It retained all the color and information even in the most brilliant of highlights and deepest of shadows.

Jessie Wang


We couldn’t use any lights; we just used the streetlights and the light from buildings. It was definitely noticeable that the Enhanced Sensitivity Mode has minimal noise, so I think it’s a real improvement.

Nikolaus Summerer


We used one of the ARRI Textures that are available in the ALEXA 35. It added some grain, and a lot of us cinematographers do have a love for grain. There was a certain feel to it, a different structure to just pushing the ASA.

The close-ups on the kids' faces were like nothing else I've seen. Even the dark sides of their faces held so much beautiful skin tone and texture.

I was so impressed by the latitude of the sensor, and I loved how it depicts colors as vividly as a stained-glass window. It is a game changer.

ALEXA 35 sets the highest standards in resolution, dynamic range, and color. It's a totally new type of camera.

More dynamic range

ALEXA 35 measures at 17 stops of dynamic range (exposure latitude), far more than any other digital cinema camera. 
Filmmakers gain 1.5 stops in the highlights and a stop in the shadows over previous ALEXA cameras, while retaining the naturalistic, film-like highlight roll-off. Sophisticated stray-light suppression ensures that the full character and contrast range of each lens is captured. Together, the increased dynamic range and stray light control make it easier to handle any lighting conditions on set, increase flexibility in post, and provide the best possible source for HDR (High Dynamic Range) projects.

More sensitivity

Impressively low noise and sensitivity settings ranging from EI 160 to EI 6400 make ALEXA 35 a “High ISO” camera. An optional Enhanced Sensitivity Mode can be applied to settings between EI 2560 and EI 6400, producing an even cleaner image in low light.

More accurate colors

ARRI’s discussions with filmmakers and careful review of the image pipeline have led to significant image quality enhancements and a faster, easier workflow. REVEAL Color Science is a suite of new image processing steps used by ALEXA 35 internally and also available through leading third-party postproduction tools for ARRIRAW processing.

More creative control

ARRI Textures provide a new and unique way for cinematographers to exert greater creative control on set. A texture defines the amount and character of grain in an image, as well as the amount of contrast at different levels of detail, perceived by the viewer as sharpness.

Choose your digital film stock

ARRI Textures allow you to alter the amount and character of grain in the image, and the amount of contrast at different levels of detail, perceived as sharpness. Previous ALEXA cameras were pre-programmed with a default texture, but ALEXA 35 lets you choose from a menu of ARRI Textures, like selecting a film stock. Texture attributes can be very subtle and are best viewed on a large, high-quality HDR monitor. Example images below have been zoomed in around 500% from the original frame size, in order to illustrate the effect of ARRI Textures on fine detail.

Short film series "Encounters"

Eleven filmmakers from around the world were given an ALEXA 35 and asked to tell a visually compelling story about an encounter—a moment when lives intersect, experiences are shared, and new directions are found. Between their diverse locations, lens choices, and shooting styles, the filmmakers pushed the limits of the camera’s dynamic range and explored the ARRI Textures, unloosing their creativity on the new possibilities with color, low light, blazing highlights, and extreme conditions.
