The ALEXA platform is the most complete digital camera system ever built, with different camera models for everyday shooting as well as specialty applications. ALEXA XT Studio (XT = Xtended Technology) is featuring a quiet, adjustable mirror shutter and an optical viewfinder that provides a real-time, high contrast image with true colors. Additionally, the ALEXA XT Studio also has an internal motorized ND filter and a DNxHD license.
