Digital full frame

Full-frame cameras such as the ALEXA Mini LF and Sony Venice.

Shooting in large format is like painting on a bigger canvas. Different stories call for different tools, and cinematographers are increasingly turning to larger formats to enhance the cinematic feel, capture the detail of landscapes, or enhance background separation for close-ups that pop out of the screen. 

ARRI Rental carries the ARRI ALEXA LF/Mini LF camera system and the Sony Venice, alongside a wide range of large-format lenses, including ARRI Signature Primes and our exclusive DNA LF series.

Fred Elmes screen shot (4)

Fred Elmes ASC ("The Dead Don't Die")

Large format gave me an opportunity to use lenses I wasn't used to. It allowed me a big image with much more quality than I'm used to with Super 35, and that I could manipulate and play with later.

Like anamorphic, large format allows you to shoot on longer lenses for an equivalent field of view, which pulls the landscape in and somehow makes the image more immersive.
