In this comprehensive camera primer, join AbelCine Camera Technology Specialist Megan Donnelly to discover how to setup and operate the ARRI Amira digital camera system. This course teaches you exactly how to set up, configure and operate the camera, including the operation of the camera’s body controls, the menu system, working with audio, monitoring waveforms, working with LUTs and ARRI Looks and finally on to post production and how to understand and handle ARRIRaw files.
In this opening module, AbelCine camera specialist Megan Donnelly introduces us to the ARRI Amira and gives an overview of the main specifications and features of the camera.
In this module we look at the external buttons, I/O ports and controls of the camera and how they are used, as well as the EVF and Monitor, explaining how each is used to access the camera controls.
In this module Megan breaks down the Amira's audio features and how to use timecode to maintain consistency in multi-camera shoots or if using an external sound recorder.
Here Megan identifies the five key parameters for any project and how to set them up on the Amira.
In this lesson Megan starts by explaining how the camera captures an image, to then discuss the relationship between RAW and Log and how it relates to the Amira camera system.
Continuing from the last module, we explore the difference between Looks and LUTs in respect to the Amira and how they can be used both functionally and creatively throughout production and post-production.
Here Megan discusses ARRI Log-C and how to correctly set color space to maximise exposure latitude for your ARRI Amira resulting in maximum detail in your image.
