IMAX väljer Arri Alexa 65

När IMAX nu digitaliserar sin fimproduktion och sina biografer, valde de en kamera med stor sensor, Alexa 65. Detta för att få bästa möjliga kvalité.

Alexa 65 har samma typ av sensor som den vanliga Alexa-kameran, fast ca dubbelt så stor. De nya objektiven är gjorda av Hasselblad/Fujinon och ”rehousade” av IB/E Optics. En zoom 50-110 mm och nio fasta brännvidder 24-300 mm. Även de äldre Hasselblad/Zeiss objektiven, som är gjorde för Arriflex 65 mm filmkamera, är nu anpassade till att passa Alexa 65.

IMAX has announced via VARIETY that it has entered into an agreement with ARRI to customize the ALEXA 65 system for use on IMAX productions.

We’re looking forward to working with the IMAX team to create a specially customized camera, lens and workflow solution that not only does justice to the corporation’s rich history of 15-perf 65 mm and 3D filmmaking, but carries it forward into a new era of even more spectacular large format image capture.

ARRI MD Franz Kraus

ARRI is very proud to announce this collaborative venture with IMAX, the recognized world leader in large format imaging technologies.

The ALEXA 65 was tested during the filming of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER by directors Anthony and Joseph Russo, who were impressed with the results and plan to make use of the cameras through IMAX on CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

Separate from the IMAX agreement, ALEXA 65 is available exclusively through the ARRI Rental network. Offering a complete large-format solution for high-end theatrical motion pictures, the system comprises a 65 mm digital cinema camera, custom-designed prime and zoom lenses, and fast, efficient workflow tools. After outstanding feedback from demos and field testing, ALEXA 65 is now in use worldwide on its first major productions.
