AMIRA Advanced Features


Pre-record function
Crucial for wildlife filmmakers, the pre-record function uses an internal buffer in the camera to perpetually record a loop, the length of which depends on what options are selected. When the REC button is hit, the clip recorded to the CFast 2.0 card will include the specified pre-record period at its start.

Bluetooth audio monitoring
This allows the camera operator, or anyone else on set, to monitor audio through wireless Bluetooth headphones. In addition, by using a microphone-equipped Bluetooth headset, spoken comments can be recorded during filming to provide notation or guidance for editing and other postproduction tasks. These comments are recorded to a fifth audio track, aligned with the four main audio tracks, but kept separate from them.

Dynamic auto tracking white balance
For situations that involve a change of color temperature during a shot, such as when a character is followed from a tungsten interior to a daylight exterior, the new dynamic tracking option makes an automatic white balance adjustment. By using a sophisticated algorithm developed by ARRI, this adjustment is seamless and undetectable even for the most extreme color temperature transitions.

Wifi* and Ethernet remote
allows the graphical user interface (GUI) on AMIRA's LCD panel to be displayed live on a device, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop, that is connected to the camera via Wifi* connection or an Ethernet cable. The user interface exactly replicates the camera's home screen menu, much like the AMIRA Simulator web tool.

Temporary licenses
Temporary licenses allow AMIRA shooters to purchase and download specific features for a specific job at the online ARRI License Shop. AMIRA Premium licenses can be activated on a weekly basis, providing a uniquely adaptable solution for the variable needs of owner-operators.

EF and B4 lens support
With the EF mount, AMIRA users can benefit from the huge range of available EF mount stills lenses, electronically controlling the iris in these lenses through the camera's user interface. B4-type lenses with an integrated servo module gain support for the auto iris function, while one other servo button can also be used as an assignable user button..

Fast boot-up time – AMIRA boots up in about 13 seconds.

Color bar – a color bar is used mainly to judge the colorimetry of the monitor displaying the camera output.

Waveform display –a further tool for judging exposure levels.

Enhanced HD-SDI outputs
AMIRA's HD-SDI outputs allow the overlay of information about timecode and other parameters that is seen in the viewfinder, to also be seen on monitors. Additionally, it is also possible to use an HD-SDI signal input as a further 'genlock-like' sync option.

LDS functionality
ARRI's Lens Data System® (LDS) comprises a range of products generating highly accurate lens metadata for use on set and in post. When using an LDS lens on AMIRA's LDS mount, lens data about iris, focus and zoom positions is visible in the viewfinder and all lens data will be embedded in the recorded QuickTime files.

* Will be supported with later SUP
