Black shading on Alexa Mini

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

I have a question about the black shading on the Alexa mini. The manual says it does it automatically and I couldn't find any precise information about it, how does it work exactly ? Does it mean that the camera does it when it is switched on ? How is it possible ?

Thank you in advance for your answers !

Hello Julie,

Alexa's in general do not have a Black Shading function to my knowledge (been using them for 5 years now). However the Alexa shows noise and other artifacts at very slow shutter speeds (ex. 1 Sec. Exposure). If you read on Arri's website, they show you the detailed workflow of their great cooling system that adjusts the temperature of the sensor and keeps it consistent.
