A great thing about the ARRI AMIRA PREMIUM it is that it is suitable for a great variety of production types, from reportage and corporate films to TV drama and low-budget movies.

This camera is built with a solid internal skeleton that guarantees camera and lens stability. Sealed and capsulated electronics provide top level protection against wetness and dust, while an integrated thermal core results in an exceptionally efficient cooling system. This ensures the correct performance of the camera no matter where you are or how hard the location conditions are. 



If you need to hire a camera for a single operator, we recommend the quick start-up conditions the Arri Amira Premium offers; with easy access control of the menu for both audio and image, a perfect shoulder balance, a sliding dovetail plate, the OLED eyepiece and fold-away LCD monitor, and an easy control of the ND internal filters on camera. ARRI camera rental - hire in Camaleon Rental.

The ARRI AMIRA PREMIUM also comes with a number of 3D LUT-based looks that can be applied while filming. You could customize your own 3D LUTs in external color grading systems, load them into the camera during prep, and even modify them on set.


  • Pre-record function. This is a great option for wildlife filmmakers. The pre-record function uses an internal buffer in the camera to perpetually record a loop, you can configure the length of the pre-recorded footage. When the REC button is hit, the clip recorded in the C-Fast 2.0 card will include the specified pre-record period at its start.
  • Dynamic auto tracking white balance. There are some situations where you will find this option quite useful. Scenes  that involve a change of color temperature while recording (for example, following a person from a tungsten interior to a daylight exterior) won't be a problem any more, this dynamic tracking option makes automatic white balance adjustments.

This adjustment is subtle and undetectable even in the most extreme color temperature transitions. ARRI camera rental/hire in Camaleon Rental.

  • Wifi and Ethernet remote. Thanks to this option, you can live display what the AMIRA´s LCD panel is showing on another device, such as a tablet, smartphone or laptop via wifi or an ethernet cable. The interface reproduces the camera's home screen menu.
  • LDS functionality. ARRI's Lens Data System® (LDS) generates highly accurate lens metadata for its use on set and post-production. When using an LDS lens on the AMIRA's LDS mount, information about iris, zoom position or focus is visible in the viewfinder, and clip files will have lens data included in the recorded footage.
  • Bluetooth audio monitoring. This option allows the camera operator to monitor audio through wireless Bluetooth headphones. Using a microphone-equipped headset, the director's comments could be recorded. This could be useful to provide guidance in post-production. These comments would be recorded on an independent audio-track.

The ARRI AMIRA PREMIUM uses an updated version of the ARRI ALEXA Classic/XT image sensor, which ensures a great image quality. With 14 stops of dynamic range, perfect highlight handling, an EI range from 160 to 3200 (ASA equivalent) at low noise levels, and natural color reproduction with natural skin tones.

This camera records HD, 2K or 4K (UHD) QuickTime ProRes clips with 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 color sampling, including 4 tracks of 24bit 48kHz audio and camera metadata. ARRI camera rental/hire in Camaleon Rental.

  • ARRI AMIRA Color Tool. The ARRI AMIRA Color Tool (Mac only) can create, modify and store AMIRA Look Files outside the camera. This software can read files from a library on the hard drive, it could also import a custom 3D LUT created in a color grading tool or from camera footage. Using the AMIRA Color Tool will let you work faster and more conveniently than from the camera menu.


  • Image Encoding. AMIRA allows you to shoot your images in LogC, Rec709 video, or with a customized LUT. LogC and video are two types of image encodings that are usually found in different production environments.

  • Rec709 Video delivers images that are ready for display on a computer, video monitor, or digital projector without any further conversion.

  • LogC stands for a logarithmic encoding of the high dynamic range scene data coming from the sensor. The digital numbers in a LogC image are proportional to the exposure measured in stops, which results in a very flat "data curve". Without compressed highlights and blacks, LogC encoding provides much more control over your recorded image. However, for a visually correct contrast and color representation, LogC images must be converted to the display color space (e.g. Rec 709 video or DCI P3). ARRI camera rental/hire in Camaleon Rental.

Inside an AMIRA, the sensor data always starts out as a LogC encoded image. Setting the camera to output Rec 709 video activates a 3D LUT that transforms the Log C image into a video encoded image for monitoring or recording. Video output can also be customized with the camera's set of look parameters. Rec 709 video represents the default video look in the AMIRA. 


  • Amira Premium 4k updates. ARRI announced two new updates for the Amira camera in 2015. On the one hand, the update of the SUP 2.0 software maximizes its capacity in terms of resolution, reaching 4K UHD. On the other hand, the SUP 3.0 software allows recording in MPEG-2 MXF for more fluid workflows, offering accessibility in broadcast formats.

  • SUP 2.0 Amira Premium 4k software update. With this update, the Amira camera incorporates a new recording format: 4K UHD, ideal for productions that need to generate digital media at high resolutions. It allows direct capture on C.Fast 2.0 cards, using Apple ProRes codecs up to 4444 at a 3840x2160 resolution (Ultra High Definition) up to 60 fps. Another addition the SUP 2.0 software has is the ability to record ProRes 3.2K in direct compatibility with ALEXA cameras. You can add remote wifi support. Ability to get audio channels and monitor them individually. It allows making speed adjustments in pre-rec mode and capturing video-frames live.
  • Software update SUP 3.0 Arri Amira Premium 4k. With the update of the SUP 2.0 software to SUP 3.0, the ARRI Amira camera acquires greater agility, to improve and facilitate workflow. This new update allows us to record with the Amira camera in MPEG-2 422p HL file format at 50 Mbit/s in MXF, which speeds up the workflow with a format of extreme compatibility, like XDCAM. The SUP 3.0 software is also accompanied by increased recording options, allowing ProRes 4444 XQ to capture 12bit RGB color depth at 420 Mb/s with the Premium feature. It incorporates interval rec mode and stop motion. It incorporates WIFI remote control support. It allows time code display via SDI output. A new audio accessory attached to the rear part of the camera has also been launched, equipping the Amira with a portable wireless slot to tune and receive audio. It also sets sound warning functions, like when the C.Fast card is full. It incorporates a time code for sensor synchronization and delimiting frame masks to determine which area of ​​the ALEV III CMOS sensor is being used or to mark the center of the image.The new SUP 3.0 software facilitates the operability of the Amira camera, expanding the assignable buttons' possible functions. With this software you will be able to set internal NDs, the 'EI' parameter, Color bars and the overlay menu. Other facilities included in the SUP 3.0 software are: the incorporation of a remote control interface for live and multi-camera productions, and a support for 16mm lenses. ARRI camera rental/hire in Camaleon Rental.
  • SUP 4.0/4.1 Arri Amira Premium 4 Software update. The new SUP 4.0 update for the Amira camera brings great news related to recording modes, media capture and video outputs. This update is compatible with all 3 Amira models (ARRI Amira, Amira Advance and ARRI Amira Premium). The SUP 4.1 update is only a software version that serves as maintenance support for SUP 4.0.
  • Super 16 HD recording modeThe capture mode in S16 HD on the Amira camera makes a 1600x900 sensor scale up to a full 1920x1080. The working size of the sensor circle would be 15.1mm, a bit larger than the usual S16 (14.5mm image circle). This recording mode allows the use of S16 lenses, such as ARRI Ultra lenses or the Zeiss S16 MKIII T1.3. You won't have any trouble using this type of lenses, despite the minimum size the S16 HD format the ARRI Amira camera has.
It is recommended to mount the S16 lens on camera carefully, taking into account the iris and focus adjustments, since these adjustments mechanics of the lens go very deep. The camera support might not be appropriate and the lens could end up crashing the front ND's cover glass. ARRI camera rental/hire in Camaleon Rental.
