At Abel, we’ve been seeing strong interest in the ARRI ALEXA for all types of production. With any new technology, there are lots of questions as to the virtues of the system, how it functions on set and what it is like to carry it through post. To help answer these questions, Abel Cine Tech has been building a library of Technical Resources on the ALEXA.
