Beautiful skin tones and natural colors
AMIRA utilizes the same sensor as ARRI’s ubiquitous ALEXA cameras and boasts the same phenomenal image quality, recording in either HD 1080 or 2K.

14-stop dynamic range and low noise
With a dynamic range of more than 14 stops, incredibly low noise levels and subtle highlight handling, AMIRA offers superior image quality that will look fantastic in any distribution format or resolution. It is suitable for countless different kinds of production, but especially for documentary-style projects where handheld camerawork and single-operator usability are key factors. Reportage and unscripted programs, promotional and corporate films, commercials, in-house productions and low-budget movies or dramas will also find AMIRA to be a compelling and value-adding option. Different lens mount options permit a vast range of current or vintage lens types to be utilized.
200 fps with CFast 2.0 memory cards
AMIRA records Rec 709 or Log C images using ProRes LT, 422, 422HQ or 444 codecs. Camera speeds of up to 200 fps allow full-quality slow motion pictures of staggering clarity and detail to be captured. By recording to in-camera CFast 2.0 flash memory cards with super-quick data rates, the route into postproduction is made as simple as possible. CFast 2.0 is an open format, delivering a fantastic price-performance ratio through incredible transfer speeds, long recording times and compatibility with standard IT tools. Costs per GB are brought right down and higher-than-broadcast-quality image pipelines are made available even to low-budget productions.
Single-user ergonomics – perfect shoulder balance - Just pick up and shoot
AMIRA has a minimal start-up time and can be used straight out of the bag by a single user, without delay. 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.
