The ALEXA Mini LF Ready to Shoot Set B from ARRI pairs the LPL-mount, large-format 4K camera with a selection of essential accessories including a B-Mount Power Splitter Box for powering them. This 19mm rod-compatible kit comprises the PL-to-LPL lens adapter, two 1TB Codex drives, an MVF-2 viewfinder, side and rear brackets, accessory and bridge plates, the splitter box, a CCH-2 top handle, a power cable, and two viewfinder cables.
The ARRI PL-to-LPL Lens Adapter enables you to attach a PL-mount lens to the ARRI ALEXA LF camera. Compatible with any PL-mount lens, Super 35 or full-frame, this adapter can be securely fastened to your lens without the use of tools.
The compact Codex Compact Drive 1TB from ARRI is a durable, industrial-style SSD compatible with the ALEXA Mini LF camera. The drive's full 1TB capacity is available for recording both ARRIRAW and ProRes without the need to reformat or switch drives.
The compact drive works without a driver or license and features a sustained write speed of up to 8 Gb/s. Using a Compact Drive Adapter allows you to mount the drives on an existing SXR Capture Drive Dock (Mac only), or any other SXR Capture Drive hardware from Codex.
Offering simultaneous use of its high-resolution OLDED viewfinder and its 4" flip-out monitor, the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF Multi Viewfinder MVF-2 is truly a multifunctional unit. Two control dials (one on each surface of the monitor) enable the MVF-2 to be used on either side of the camera, providing the operator or assistant control as best suits your shot. Both the OLED EVF and the monitor feature upgrades from the MVF-1, including the ability to detach the eyepiece from the monitor unit.
The MVF-2's high-resolution, high-contrast monitor features the same OLED as the ALEXA LF EVF-2, providing matched views when using both cameras at the same time. The ARRICAM-style optical eyepiece incorporates a large exit pupil, providing more leeway for the operator's head movements while still viewing the image. A built-in eyepiece heater can be activated to defog your view when it's cold or muggy; this cable-less function will clear the eyepiece in all but the absolute coldest temperatures.
A new viewfinder cable incorporates keyless, easy-to-attach CoaXpress connectors; cables are available up to 33' long for remote control and viewing. The 4" monitor can be flipped out to the side, folded back with its screen visible, or folded flat for single-operator use. The MVF-2 monitor's tilting function and high daylight visibility provide convenient viewing in almost any situation.
Simultaneous operation enables the MVF-2 to provide a view for your camera assistant or director while the camera operator is using the OLED eyepiece. A single operator can use the monitor's camera control dial while viewing through the EVF or the monitor as they choose. Operator-suggested design improvements include a headphone jack for monitoring audio and a slide-out card for jotting down camera notes or actor/character names.
The 1.15' ARRI Cable VF connects the MVF-2 viewfinder unit to the ALEXA Mini LF camera. Both ends of this cable feature keyless CoaXpress connectors for quick, easy linking to the MVF-2 viewfinder.
