If you’re looking for a camera rental that can handle highlights and shadows similar to film, then renting the Arri Alexa is the way to go.
The Arri Alexa camera was designed to marry the worlds of film and digital acquisition and truly deserves to be called a digital cinema camera. ARRI has over 100 years of experience making high quality lenses, accessories and camera bodies and has used all of that expertise to deliver a camera system that combines the ruggedness and reliability of 35mm film camera bodies with the ease of use and practicality of a digital workflow. Most importantly, the camera delivers stunning film-like images due to a massive dynamic range that is tweaked to deliver natural highlight roll-offs and crisp blacks.
Under the hood, the camera boasts a 3.5K sensor capable of sending 12bit Arriraw to an external recorder or 1920x1080 ProRes to SXS cards. This flexibility in workflows means the camera can be used on the biggest of features or the smallest of webisodes with a workflow that makes sense for either type of project. The camera also has a native ISO of 800, making it great in low light and adding even more to the practicality factor.
The Alexa is not perfect by any means; one major drawback is the lack of high speed recording in the base package, something taken for granted with film cameras. Another consideration is that the ALEXA is essentially a 2K camera. With that in mind, for effects work or keying you might be better off renting another camera.
That said, this is one of the most requested cameras we offer here at Stray Angel for rent. It’s the kind of camera you can put some nice glass on, point in the right direction and get a great image every time and we think that’s a huge reason it’s been such a hit for ARRI.
The Codex ARRIRAW Onboard recorder is a compact, lightweight and affordable solution that sets the standard for file-based workflows. ARRIRAW provides the best quality digital camera originals for motion pictures and high-end television drama and commercials.
The 4K Blackmagic Production Camera is an EF Mount Ultra HD 4K capable camera.
After an extra long wait, Blackmagic finally released the 4K Blackmagic Camera and it has not disappointed. From the outside it may not look much different from the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera, but improvements include higher resolution and a global shutter.
Unbutton your high-waist pants, crack open a PBR, and get ready to geek out because the 4K BMPC has some seriously good specs for the price.
We’ll start with the 4K Blackmagic’s recording capabilities. This little guy records Ultra HD 4K (3840x2160) and 1080HD in visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) files. Blackmagic uses a global shutter in this camera so you won’t get rolling shutter artifacts like you would with a CMOS sensor.
Not only does the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera’s Super 35mm sensor offer impressive resolution, but it also gives you 12 stops of dynamic range. Having this large amount of dynamic range allows the camera to capture more information so you have greater flexibility in post.
As far as media goes, the 4K BMPC records to standard 2.5” SSDs. While you can playback directly from the camera, it is important to remember that you can not format the cards in camera.
Our 4K Blackmagic Camera rental includes a cage with power solution, swappable external batteries, and 2 SSDs.
The Canon 5D Mark II is a DSLR available for rental at Stray Angel Films.

Wide Camera/Lens Compatibility
The Auto Configuration feature means the Ronin can adapt to a range of camera sizes from lightweight mirrorless models up to cinema cameras. It is suitable for payloads up to 16 pounds.
SmoothTrack gives a single gimbal operator the ability to translate their tilt and pan movements of the gimbal into smooth and stabilized movements of the camera's angle. This is designed to make framing of broad wide-angle scenes or even shooting in close quarters much easier during single gimbal operator use.
After balancing the camera with a simple tap of the ATS (Auto Tune Stability) button, Ronin will be automatically tuned for the mass and weight distribution of your camera rig. The gimbal will intelligently adjust parameters based on the camera rig's weight and independently adjust each of the three axes until an optimal setting is found.
Three Operation Modes
Upright Operation Mode
Upright Mode allows the gimbal to be flipped over so the camera can be operated closer to eye level without straining to lift the gimbal. This can be used in various situations, such mounting on the top of the vehicle.
Underslung (Suspended) Operation Mode
Suspended Operation Mode is the standard operation mode for Ronin. Low slung, close to the ground, or simply holding the gimbal in front of you offers stabilized handheld footage. This mode would also be used when mounted the gimbal on a flying platform such as a multirotor RC helicopter.
When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed - such as when moving through doorways or narrow paths - Briefcase Mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.
Second Operator Control
A second operator transmitter (radio controller) is included with the package. Featuring the form factor of an RC aircraft radio controller, the 2.4 GHz Ronin transmitter provides pan and tilt control as well user-assignable speed settings and operation modes via two toggle switches. If you would rather use a third-party transmitter a D-bus port is provided.
Optional Joystick Pan/Tilt
Single thumb control is possible for the Ronin Handheld Gimbal System. These Pan and Tilt movements are controlled via the optional joystick attachment, available separately. Additionally, SmoothTrack Mode can be turned on or off using the joystick interface.
Assistant Software for Mobile and Windows
A mobile device or computer to run the Assistant Software is essential. It is available for select iOS mobile devices and Windows computers. With the software you can:
A built-in balance adjustment system means no tools are needed for setup and adjustment, saving time when changing the setup for different camera arrangements.
Dual 15mm (LWS) rods are incorporated for adding follow focuses or matte boxes. Meanwhile top bar accessory mounts let you attach field monitors, lights, microphones, recorders, and other "camera-mounted" accessories.
Quick Release Smart Battery
Providing an estimated 4 hours of run time (depending on use), the proprietary Ronin battery system is designed for easy changes in the field and charges using a dedicated charger that is included. The batteries feature indicators so remaining power can be checked directly on the battery itself. Unlike may lithium-polymer batteries, with the Ronin Smart Battery, overcharge and over depletion protection is built-in, as is individual battery cell charge balancing.
Power Distribution Box
Two regulated 12V DC PowerTaps, one 500mAh type A female USB connector, and also a connection point for the DJI Lightbridge Long Range HD Video Downlink are provided. These provide power connection for various accessories, including motorized follow focus systems, video transmitters, and more - all while keeping the wiring to a minimum.
Quick Release Top Handle
Designed to save time breaking the system down or transporting it between locations.
Protective Carrying Case Included
A watertight, hardshell case with wheels is included for transporting and storing the Ronin. The case features a custom-fitted foam interior with spaces for the disassembled Ronin, transmitter, and two batteries with room leftover for sundry accessories.
Based on Zenmuse Technology
The Ronin adapts the same brushless motor technology used in DJI's aerial gimbals for handheld, terrestrial use.
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Construction
Built with taxing professional shoots in mind, the Ronin is designed for durability and features integrated cable management to avoid cable ties or loops that can get snagged.
Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders
Implemented at each axis, these help the Ronin achieve a control accuracy of ±0.02%.
