The Allrounder

ARRI proudly introduces AMIRA Advanced, a versatile documentary-style camera that combines exceptional image quality and affordable CFast 2.0 workflows with an ergonomic design optimized for single-operator use and extended shoulder-mounted operation. Ready to pick up and shoot straight out of the camera bag, AMIRA is hardy enough to take anywhere and features in-camera grading with preloaded 3D LUTs, as well as 200 fps slow motion. It is suitable for a great variety of production types, from reportage and corporate films to TV drama and low-budget movies, so wherever you are headed and whatever you need to shoot, let AMIRA be your companion.

AMIRA Advanced Features


  • Same 35 mm sensor as ALEXA
  • 4K UHD 3840×2160 (with license), HD 1920×1080;
  • Rec 709
  • ProRes recording up to 422 on CFast 2.0 cards
  • Dynamic range of 14+ stops
  • Natural colors and skin tones
  • Up to 100 fps – full sensor area

AMIRA features the same sensor and exceptional image quality as the ARRI ALEXA, recording superior HD 1080 pictures that are suitable for any distribution format. With a dynamic range of more than 14 stops, low noise levels, subtle highlight handling, natural color rendering, breathtaking skin tones and speeds of up to 100 fps, AMIRA will deliver beautiful, life-like images in any situation.

  • Quick start-up – ready to shoot
  • Optimized for the single operator
  • Sliding dovetails – perfect shoulder balance
  • Internal ND filters (0.6/1.2/2.1)
  • OLED eyepiece and fold-away LCD monitor
  • Multi-channel audio – easy-access controls

AMIRA boots up quickly and can be used straight out of the bag by a single user, with no setting up, no rigging and no delays. Sliding dovetails allow the camera to be perfectly shoulder-balanced for comfortable handheld shooting, while the innovative multi-viewfinder combines a high resolution OLED eyepiece with a fold-away LCD monitor that provides both a live view and full access to camera functions.

  • Preloaded looks
  • Adjustable looks – total color control on set
  • High creativity, low postproduction costs
  • Uniquely, AMIRA comes with a number of 3D LUT-based looks that can be applied while filming.

The pre-loaded LUT feature essentially amounts to in-camera grading; it allows cinematographers to craft a consistent, identifiable visual approach, even on small- scale productions that cannot afford to pay them to attend the grade. Documentaries, dramas and commercials often involve a number of contrasting looks for different narrative or thematic elements. With AMIRA these looks can be either ‘burned in’ to the recorded footage or used purely for monitor imaging. Either way, they give cinematographers and directors a greater degree of creative control on fast-moving productions, while keeping costs down for producers.

  • Rugged and reliable ARRI build quality
  • Upgradeable hardware and software
  • Solid lens mounts (PL/B4 2/3”/EF)
  • Sealed electronics and efficient cooling

With a solid internal skeleton that guarantees camera and lens stability, AMIRA is a highly durable product constructed of the strongest possible materials. Sealed and capsulated electronics provide top level protection against humidity and dust, while an integrated thermal core results in an exceptionally efficient cooling system. All of this means that productions can take AMIRA anywhere, from jungles and deserts to snow-capped mountain tops, in the sure knowledge that it will not let them down. Whether on a Hollywood sound stage or a r emote documentary location, technical delays cost money – money that could be saved by working with AMIRA.

Like all ARRI products, AMIRA is designed to be a safe, long–term investment and built to withstand the rigors of life on a professional set. One of the reasons why ALEXA has been accepted so widely all over the world is that its build quality is significantly higher than competitor cameras, and the same is true of AMIRA.

AMIRA Advanced Features

Pre-record function
Crucial for wildlife filmmakers, the pre-record function uses an internal buffer in the camera to perpetually record a loop, the length of which depends on what options are selected. When the REC button is hit, the clip recorded to the CFast 2.0 card will include the specified pre-record period at its start.

Bluetooth audio monitoring
This allows the camera operator, or anyone else on set, to monitor audio through wireless Bluetooth headphones. In addition, by using a microphone-equipped Bluetooth headset, spoken comments can be recorded during filming to provide notation or guidance for editing and other postproduction tasks. These comments are recorded to a fifth audio track, aligned with the four main audio tracks, but kept separate from them.

Dynamic auto tracking white balance
For situations that involve a change of color temperature during a shot, such as when a character is followed from a tungsten interior to a daylight exterior, the new dynamic tracking option makes an automatic white balance adjustment. By using a sophisticated algorithm developed by ARRI, this adjustment is seamless and undetectable even for the most extreme color temperature transitions.

Wifi* and Ethernet remote
allows the graphical user interface (GUI) on AMIRA’s LCD panel to be displayed live on a device, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop, that is connected to the camera via Wifi* connection or an Ethernet cable. The user interface exactly replicates the camera’s home screen menu, much like the AMIRA Simulator web tool.

Temporary licenses
Temporary licenses allow AMIRA shooters to purchase and download specific features for a specific job at the online ARRI License Shop. AMIRA Premium licenses can be activated on a weekly basis, providing a uniquely adaptable solution for the variable needs of owner-operators.

EF and B4 lens support
With the EF mount, AMIRA users can benefit from the huge range of available EF mount stills lenses, electronically controlling the iris in these lenses through the camera’s user interface. B4-type lenses with an integrated servo module gain support for the auto iris function, while one other servo button can also be used as an assignable user button..

Fast boot-up time – AMIRA boots up in about 13 seconds.

Color bar – a color bar is used mainly to judge the colorimetry of the monitor displaying the camera output.

Waveform display –a further tool for judging exposure levels.

Enhanced HD-SDI outputs
AMIRA’s HD-SDI outputs allow the overlay of information about timecode and other parameters that is seen in the viewfinder, to also be seen on monitors. Additionally, it is also possible to use an HD-SDI signal input as a further ‘genlock-like’ sync option.

LDS functionality
ARRI’s Lens Data System® (LDS) comprises a range of products generating highly accurate lens metadata for use on set and in post. When using an LDS lens on AMIRA’s LDS mount, lens data about iris, focus and zoom positions is visible in the viewfinder and all lens data will be embedded in the recorded QuickTime files.
