Gary Adcock walks through the surprisingly easy-to-navigate Arri Alexa interface.

With amazing image quality and massive support in high-end professional film/video community, Arri Alexa has established itself as the go-to camera for major Hollywood productions. Unfortunately most indie-filmmakers never get a chance to use an Alexa unless they are on a very high budget production. If and when you do get a chance to shoot on such an amazing camera you want to be prepared. In the following video, Gary Adcock walks us through an Arri Alexa camera interface and explains what each button and knob does.

The video covers:

  • Finding the right frame rate
  • Using the scroll wheel
  • Changing the ASA
  • Choosing the right codec
  • Formatting a card
  • Setting recording output
  • P vs PSF output
  • Different inputs and outputs
