New image sensor in ARRI's latest Alexa 35 cine camera

ARRI has officially unveiled the ALEXA 35, a new Super 35 digital cinema camera with 17 stops of dynamic range and a host of new features that are all aimed to provide the best possible image quality.

The ALEXA 35 has big shoes to fill as it is the first ARRI camera to feature a sensor that isn’t based on the ALEV-III. The ALEV-III has been used in various forms in every single ALEXA camera since 2010. The ALEXA 35 represents the next big step for ARRI in the evolution of the ALEXA family.


With its new image sensor with ~6 micron pixel pitch, Arri claims to provide 17 stop of dynamic range but details about the sensor manufacturer were not available on their website. Earlier models of their camera used the Alev-III sensor which was a CMOS sensors from onsemi.

A couple of other videos about the new Alexa 35:



  1. I was wondering what the engineering DR is, someone said it might be near 120 dB.

  2. Who designed the CMOS Image Sensor for ARRI?

    1. I assume the same team that designed ALEV-III.

    2. that team was fired last year (see the comments here: https://image-sensors-world.blogspot.com/2021/03/on-semi-celebrates-performance-of-its-6.html )

    3. They said it was designed by ARRI but i dont buy that

    4. Quite similar
