This ARRI Alexa Camera Took a 26 Foot Fall Onto Concrete and Continued to Work


Oh man…how would you feel if your camcorder took a major fall? And we’re not talking about a camcorder that two two thousand dollars, but something significantly more. In a recent photoset posted to their Facebook page, Arri told the short story of a camera that took a 26 foot fall onto concrete and continued to function. After it took the massive tumble, the crew charged it up and it kept working. But the Arri team performed a maintenance check and found that there was no serious damage to the camera.

For what it’s worth, the Classic Arri Alexa starter kit is over $80,000.

That poor first AC probably curled up into a ball and cried to himself in the corner. More images are after the jump.
