Alexa Plus 4:3 cinema camera
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Arri Alexa Plus 4:3 (K1.71150.0)
is like the standard Alexa Plus, but has a 4:3 Super 35 sensor ideal
for using anamorphic lenses. The full area of the sensor is used
and a much higher image quality retained - the magic that anamorphic
lenses provide is rendered faithfully and fully in the digital image.
This can also be used in 16:9 mode just like any Alexa, so it's
versatile even if you're not using anamorphic. This has the exceptional
film-like organic image the Alexas are known for with extended clean
highlights, low noise floor, natural skin tones, excellent color
separation, and cinematic depth. Extremely rugged and reliable build
with ergonomics and easy usability well considered. Form factor
ideal for balanced shoulder use and on tripod.
The newer Alexa Plus models have all the features of the Alexa
Classic EV, but adds features such as: Arri wireless lens control
system compatibility, electronic horizon, lens mount has LDS contacts
(lens data system), extra monitor BNC out (1.5G HD-SDI), GPS function,
lens synchronisation for 3D, a third RS accessory power output,
built-in position and motion sensors, and quick switch BNC connectors.
These come with the Alexa Plus 4:3 license bundle - which includes
high-speed (120fps), DNxHD recording, and anamorphic de-squeeze
Can record in HD / 2K ProRes up to 4444 and HD DNxHD. This has
the newest SUP 11.1.1 which allows 3.2K Pro Res at 16:9 (which
is easily upscaled to 4K / 3.8K UHD). Also has the XR module upgrade
just like the XT models have, so also can do internal ARRIRAW
2.8K as well (though note does not do Open Gate). This module
uses capture card drive such as Codex CDX-3730. But can also use
SxS Pro / Pro+ cards if adapter CDX-3790 (K2.48838.0) is installed.
Can also work with qualfied SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0 card
with use of adapter K2.48839.0.
Maximum frame rates are: 16:9 ProRes HD at 120fps, 16:9 ProRes
2K at 60fps, 16:9 Prores 3.2K at 30fps. 16:9 ARRIRAW at 120fps,
4:3 Prores at 48fps, 4:3 ARRIRAW at 90fps. Some reduced frame
rates at 4:4:4 when using SxS media instead of CFast 2.0 or XR
Additional features include: 14 stop dynamic range, EI 800 base
sensitivity (160-3200 range), Log C / Rec 709 / DCI P3, audio
recording over 5-pin XLR line level input, surround view, false
color exposure check, peaking focus, color bars/tone, and much
This has the XR module upgrade installed, allowing internal
ARRIRAW onto CDX-3730 drives (adapter are available to allow Prores
/ DNxHD onto SxS / SxS Pro+, or Sandisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0
cards). The XR module makes this very similar to the Alexa XT
model, except without Open Gate. Newest Sup 11.1.1 installed,
unlocking 3.2K pro res recording in addition to HD / 2K. Also
includes many valuable accessories: EVF-1 viewfinder with eyecup,
long length viewfinder connecting cable, VMB-2 viewfinder mounting
bracket, V-mount battery plate, CCH-1 center top handle, BP-13
bridge plate, sliding dovetail plate. This does not have shoulder
pad or velcro for pad installed. This will ship in a hard case.
The case is not in very good condition, but will provide extra
protection in transit and is considered a "bonus" item.
Cosmetically in acceptable condition for a professionally used
Alexa - with just some paint wear, touchups, and scuffs on body
- but no damage or indications of rough usage. Overall very presentable.
This has a reasonable 3960 hours of use. All features, functions,
sensor, connections and included accessories are tested in excellent
AJ-HPX3100G P2 HD camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Panasonic AJ-HPX3100 P2 HD
camcorder is a 2/3" 1920x1080 10-bit 4:2:2 master quality ENG style
shoulder camcorder. Newly designed smaller/lighter and less power
consumption than the AJ-HPX3000 / AJ-HPX3700. Records in AVC Intra
and DVCPROHD. Worldwide framerate capability of 24P, 25P, 30P, 50i,
and 60i. High sensitivity and excellent s/n ratio. Power is via
Anton Bauer goldmount battery plate or any quality 4-pin XLR power
supply. It can also use v-mount / v-lock batteries by installing
a simple goldmount to v-mount adapter plate. Features include: advanced
gamma settings, film-like shutter controls, HD-SDI output, wireless
metadata input, chromatic aberration compensation (CAC), three level
dynamic range stretch (DRS), advanced 14-bit digital signal processing
(DSP), digital zoom/super gain, one clip REC function, 2 disc/4
position ND/CC optical filter wheel, 3.5" color LCD monitor, and
full customization of image you'd expect in a high end broadcast
This includes the Panasonic AJ-HVF21G 2" black & white
viewfinder. Provides ample resolution for easy focusing. Useful
functions for focus peaking, contrast, brightness, zebra, and
front/rear tally. Includes microphone holder and eyecup.
This comes with the AJ-HVF21G viewfinder. Microphone, batteries,
and power supply not included - as is typical with broadcast camcorders.
This has some cosmetic wear and paint touchups sporadically but
overall gives a clean and well taken care of appearance. The flip-out
LCD has some hairline scratches, which are not visible unless
looking closely while it's off and not noticed when in use. The
LCD is for basic composition and menu operation anyway, not for
the most critical viewing like the viewfinder and HD-SDI output.
This has already been upgraded to the latest firwmare. Hours of
use: operation 301x10, power on 6343. While this may seem a little
high at a glance, this is a solid state camcorder and extremely
well made and taken care of, so this is just moderate usage in
the scheme of a high end ENG camcorder. This is tested in excellent
working order, good sensor, with all functions/features operating
HVR-A1U HDV camcorder

for monitoring or live output include: HDV/DV firewire / i.link
IEEE 1394, component HD / SD, composite. This doesn't have HDMI,
but one can always gets a component to HDMI converter for example
if they need that. Many use this as an affordable studio / live

of situations where larger cameras are impossible.
This includes XLR adapter, remote, ac adapter / charger, long-life
battery, component/av cables, manual (not pictured), lens hood
w/ integrated cap. This does not include external mic. Good cosmetic
condition with some exterior scratches from transportation, not
from usage because this has low hour meter readings. The hood
shows a bit of extra wear because it came from a different camera
with more usage. The previous owner did etch the serial number
into the bottom of the camera. Clean LCD screen. Good lens optics.
Hours of use: drum 0x10, tape 0x10, threading 5x10, operation
1x10. So this has had under 10 hours of actual usage, which is
quite rare indeed. All functions, features, connections, tape
transport are tested in good working order.
