    Hi,

    So we have managed to mount an Alexa M on the Movi M15 and just thought I would share it with you. You need two extra bits in order for it to work, as shown in the extra picture.

    Thanks for sharing. Appreciated. What is the connector you have posted? Looks like power?

    It is an optical u turn adapter as the cable that comes with the camera comes out too far at the back meaning you cannot mount the camera on the Movi.

    Hope that helps,

    Arri rentals in Uxbridge have a couple they made up themselves. Let me know if you need an extra hand on the shoot :).

    Preston MDR and motor, Panavision P-Vintage lenses, 1 or 2 filters. Worked a treat given a good balance.

    No, I used an earlier shortened version from FIS Blue, works well, not as well as U-turn.

    Hey guys,

    How are you powering the mini when its mounted? Side mounted v-lock or whats best? We have one on order but want to make sure we have all the mounting parts before it gets here.

    Thanks!

    Aliesha,

    the mini has several options to be powered. Arri will offer a side plate for v-mount similar to the Freefly mount for the red epic. you can also velcro a lipo or v-mount bat to the side of the mini. When did you order? i ordered mine end of march and hope to get it in july….

    Best,

    Wolf
