The design and technical features of the Amira provides a unique camera that can be operated by one person. Below we try to sum up the Amira to the existing Alexa based on information provided by Camera Nordic.

Dokumentär-aktig kamera

En mångsidig dokumentär-aktig kamera med exceptionell bildkvalitet, enkelt arbetsflöde, inbyggda ND-filter, flertal optik fattningar och en väldigt ergonomisk konstruktion gör den optimerad för en-mans och axel opererad inspelning.
Den kan plockas upp ur väskan och är redo för inspelning direkt. Amiran är robust byggd för att ta med varsomhelst, kostnadseffektiv och klarar upp till 200 bilder per sekund.
Framtidssäker konstruktion, baserad på FPGA teknologi ger utrymme för att klara uppdateringar och nya funktioner utöver dagens produktionskrav.

Dagsljus förutsägelse

Då Amiran ännu inte har lanserats kan Dagsljus endast ge en förutsägelse baserad på teknisk information och ha fingrat lite på en beta version. Amiran kommer att fungera utmärkt som B-kamera såväl som 2nd unit kamera på större produktioner. Den enkla hanteringen och priset tillsammans med ARRI’s kvalitet öppnar upp för en bred användning från det enklaste/minsta till större produktioner som ovan nämnt.
När Dagsljus blickar in i framtiden kan vi se denna nykomling få sin roll inom en mängd olika scenarier.

Dagsljus prediction

As Amira is not yet released Dagsljus can only make some predtictions and assume things based on the technical information provided and a brief hands on moment with a beta-version of the camera. Amira will be work well as a B camera and or second unit camera when needed on larger productions. The easy handeling and pricing together with the ARRI quality stamp opens up a new fields of operations ranging from the tiny to the biggest as mentioned above. When the Dagsljus crew look in to the crystal ball of the future we see this newcomer in a wide variety of scenarios.
