The Arri ALEXA XT has starting shipping across the US, and we recently put our hands on one to see what it could do. The ALEXA XT features the XR, or extended recording, module that allows you to record in ARRIRAW, along with ProRes or DNxHD. The camera has the same simple and elegant design we have all come to know, but with some new features including an internal ND option and an even quieter fan. Check out the video above to learn more about the ALEXA XT and some of the new accessories available for it.
In the second video, below, I go over the ALEXA XT Workflow with the new XR module. I also show how to download clips when recording in ProRes or DNxHD, and how to use the Codex VFS when recording in Raw. With the Codex VFS, the camera can deliver in multiple formats at the same time. Make sure to stay tuned for future videos featuring the ALEXA XT!
