ARRI Signature primes on Alexa LF lens test

Florian Stadler

Received this combo from Arri and wanted to feel it out. This is not really a test as it is more of a taking the lenses out on a spin.

It was shot with only natural light handheld at my landlords art studio at 1280 ASA.

We had the 25mm, 47mm and 75mm as those were the first in the set to deliver.

I have a 4K Prores file available i will send a link if requested. 


This lens test boogie showcases the talents of many creative individuals.

Special Thanks to Peter Shire for letting us shoot in his beautiful studio.

Beautiful work!

Thank you for this!  My I ask what/if any grading was done?  Were the colors popping that much straight from camera?  And more importantly, how was handholding the LF!?

Yes we did a grade in Resolve and I went pretty saturated with the colors (in the 60 range) as I felt it was nice how the image detail could hold up to that and fitted the subject matter.
The LF with the Signature Primes was on the heavy side but balanced very nicely on the shoulder and was very manageable in conjunction with an Easyrig, Serene arm and Gravity One.
