Arri has just launched its new AMIRA camera.
AMIRA is designed to use as an ENG or documentary camera, robust enough to take almost anywhere. Key features include in-camera grading with preloaded looks based on 3D LUTs, Internal NDs (0.6,1.2, 2.1), and offers standard as well as high speed - 200 fps slow motion.
AMIRA records Rec 709 or Log C images using ProRes LT, 422, 422HQ or 444 codecs. By recording to in-camera CFast 2.0 flash memory cards with super-quick data rates.
No word yet on the price but it does sport a full 35mm sensor (even at high speed), 14 stops latitude, and appears to be lighter than the Alexa.
