Hello,

 

Just curious, if anyone has any first hand experience flying the Alexa 65? Is it the same power connector as a normal Alexa? Other than it being wider and heavier are there any other challenges with flying it?

 

Any info would be a great help!

 

Cheers

 

Kevin

I believe you're correct, Frederic. I looked through my notes, and the power supply I made for IMAX for the Alexa 65 required 350W at 24V nominal (28V was the actual output.)

Wondering if anyone has flown Alexa 65 and had a plate that could still clip in to the back of the cam. Seems like the bottom of camera is different from regular Alexa's as well as the Studio. Couldn't get the precision plate to line up- lines up with "studio" screws but need a longer screw to clip into back. The spacer block connects with the back of cam in a bad way so that didn't seem to work either.

 

Thanks,

Mike

The one on Jerry's page is made by Sal as well. I bought mine at Sal's shop.

 

Give him a call or send him an email. He is keen to keep his stuff up to date.

 

A new spacer block will do it.

The bottom of the camera is indeed different than a normal Alexa, and wont work with our usual Alexa plates. 

The package that I was using included it's own Steadicam plate for the base to connect the front and back.
