Signature Prime Lenses

Organic images filled with life and emotion

ARRI Signature Prime Lenses

The newest members in the ARRI lens family are 16 large-format ARRI Signature Prime lenses, ranging from 12 mm to 280 mm and fitted with the ARRI LPL mount. While the Signature Primes exemplify state-of-the-art optical precision, they have been designed to render organic, emotionally engaging images, gently softening and texturizing the large format with natural skin tones and creamy bokeh. A fast T-stop of T1.8 facilitates shallow depth of field and the smooth focus fall-off gives subjects heightened presence in the frame. 

Features

  • Timeless aesthetic
  • Precision engineered
  • Warm, emotional images
  • Lightweight magnesium casing
  • Creamy bokeh
  • Beautiful skintones
  • Magnetic rear filter holder for nets, glass elements, etc.

The ARRI Signature Prime range is the first cine lens series to feature machined magnesium lens barrels, making the optics incredibly lightweight and robust. They are also the first to incorporate ARRI’s next-generation LDS-2 Lens Data System, with high data rates and absolute encoders for fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lens data and is being licensed to other lens and camera manufacturers.

The ALEXA LF camera and Signature Prime lenses are an elegant combination. I love the lenses; they strike a wonderful balance between modernity and character.

Cinematographer Matias Boucard

With the 25 mm Signature Prime lens, you feel like you are there in the scene with the actors. The lenses are lightweight and are not too sharp, but with a certain softness and very specific.

Cinematographer Dan Laustsen ASC, DFF

These lenses are a leap forward in the same way that Master Primes redefined what was possible optically. The look and feel are completely new, consisting of a pleasing contrast level combined with a radical clarity.  I’m not sure how they pulled this off, but they were wonderful to work with.

Cinematographer Logan Schneider

I love the look of the Signature Primes.  They have a gentle feel to their contrast and resolution -  sharp and crisp enough to see details in the shot, but not so defined and edgy as to look clinical.  I designed shots to look directly into the sun. I really liked the flares: soft edged and blue-yellow in color.  Signature Primes are a gorgeous complement to the magnificent ALEXA LF.

Cinematographer Bill Bennett ASC

I intentionally shot mundane subjects I wouldn’t normally cover, and the results got me really excited. The camera and lens captured every tonal nuance with unmatched detail, gradation and color. I love how the out-of-focus areas are rendered, contributing to a rich and vivid overall look.

Cinematographer Wang Yu

To me, the system embodies typical ARRI quality, but there is a new level of emotion to the images—a smoothness to the way the camera and lenses work together.

In contrast with other ALEXA LF showreels exploring low light and shadow, cinematographer Tom Fährmann BVK shot a diverse palette of faces and skin tones against a white background. Varying portrait lighting illustrates the humanity, color and exceptional clarity of the ALEXA LF/ARRI Signature Prime combination.
