Hear from our customers:

ARRI CPO provided a unique opportunity for us to access ARRI quality at an affordable price. With the ALEXA Plus 4:3 we got a reliable camera that enables us to fully indulge in our creative visions as young, aspiring filmmakers. The support from ARRI was amazing and we are very excited to shoot future projects on this incredible piece of equipment.

Opting for the Master Primes through the CPO Program was beneficial to us in terms of pricing and after-sales support. We also feel assured because the pre-owned lenses have undergone a meticulous quality check done by ARRI themselves.

In every shoot, it's crucial to have lenses that are in excellent condition with genuine and superior quality. Using the CPO Master Primes eliminates all our worries. The quality of the lenses is identical to brand new ARRI lenses.

I love my refurbished AMIRA with all my heart. We’ve been through so much together and it always has my back, even on the most stressful days on set. In the two years I’ve had the camera, I’ve shot more than 50 projects with it and it hasn’t faltered once. The image continues to be great and it completely holds up even against newer cameras. I’m still finding new and exciting ways to push the camera and what it can do.

I acquired my ALEXA Classic through the ARRI CPO program and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the warm attention that I was given from the very beginning up to when I had the camera in my hands.

A manufacturer's perspective

You can be certain that every piece of ARRI Certified Pre‑Owned equipment has been thoroughly examined, rigorously tested, and fully serviced. You’re not sacrificing performance for price when you buy a CPO product, because you are buying it from the experts who designed and manufactured it in the first place, and who know better than anyone how it should perform.

The ALEXA Mini is the only camera I'm always sad to leave at the end of a shoot. It is so light, so versatile, so reliable, and in my opinion offers the greatest freedom of expression and closeness to the actors. I'm very happy to have invested in the camera of my dreams and am excited to own it!

After five years of traveling the world with my AMIRA, I decided to invest in an ALEXA Mini LF with a full frame sensor. I was lucky enough to be able to benefit from ARRI's CPO program. The camera is verified and certified by the brand, which allowed me to save money on the camera body and to complete this purchase with additional accessories.

  • The cameras’ parameters, including image sensor quality, recording functions, connectors, flange focal distance, audio system, and ARRI Lens Control System are rigorously tested. The overhaul also includes an update to the latest Software Update Package (SUP) of the respective model. CPO products go through the same final function test that is required for new equipment. This  ensures that every piece offered for resale meets the high standards expected of it. 

  • Under the ARRI Approved Certified Pre‑Owned program, selected lamp heads undergo thorough assessments, are given the necessary overhauls during the refurbishing process, and are tested in detail before they receive ARRI’s stamp of approval. Mechanical defects are repaired, electrical and electronic components updated, and worn-out parts replaced. The light source of each LED lighting fixture is checked against factory specifications and replaced if necessary. Lastly, each lighting fixture receives the latest firmware. The equipment goes through a final function test to ensure its full functionality.
