A new era begins 

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.

17 stops of dynamic range

2.5 more stops than previous ALEXA cameras, with filmic highlight roll-off
Easier to handle any lighting conditions, more flexible in post
The best possible source for HDR projects

With increased light sensitivity and more detail in the highlights, I can be even more bold with my lighting and exposure choices.

The ALEXA 35 was spectacular; it outperformed all my expectations. I could not get the camera to clip - the dynamic range is so wide and impressive. This is a completely new generation.

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.

Improved sensitivity: lower noise, higher ISO
EI 160 to EI 6400, with color accuracy maintained at all exposure levels
Enhanced Sensitivity option for even cleaner images in low light

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.

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 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.

Subtler tonal variations for immersive and emotionally powerful images
Easy workflow with REVEAL Color Science

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.

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.

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.

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

ARRI Textures let you tune how ALEXA 35 'sees' the world
Evolving menu of textures for different shooting environments and visual styles

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.

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 texture settings that will emulate film embedded in the sensor are kind of game-changing. Over the years I have tried to make digital look like film...we have not been close to this.

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.

Built for a long-term investment

Before shipping, every ALEXA 35 undergoes extreme temperature and vibration tests to ensure a lifetime of reliable service on set. During development, the camera was shaken, frozen, cooked, and subjected to blunt impact trauma, while connectors were repeatedly stress-tested by robotic arms. The result? ALEXA 35 is temperature resistant, splash and dust-proof, and built to last, delivering a safe return on investment.


ALEXA 35 long term investment

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.
