ALEXA Mini LF SUP 7.0 officially available

Thu May 06, 2021 3:35 pm

Hello all,

We are happy to inform you about the availability of ALEXA Mini LF SUP 7.0 with many new and exciting features.

One of the most asked for additions to the Mini LF are the new Super 35 recording formats. With these new formats, the Mini LF is now more flexible than ever and can be used for both large-format and Super 35 productions. In addition, three of the four Super 35 recording formats offer higher frame rates than the ALEXA Mini.

At the same time, we are expanding the cameras’ features for the immensely popular large format. Two new large format recording formats deliver the large format look with a significantly reduced data rate (HD or UHD recording). Many additional features are based on customer requests and greatly improve the overall usability of the camera.

A full list of features, the download of the SUP, the camera manual and of the Release Notes with a detailed explanation of each feature can be found on the ALEXA Mini LF SUP 7.0 download page in the Service section of our website.
