RED Raven Camera Review 2023

Arri Alexa Mini vs RED Camera

Both the ARRI ALEXA Mini and RED cameras are extensively used as professional-grade digital cinema cameras in the film and television industries. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between the two would depend on the filmmaker’s or cinematographer’s particular demands and preferences.

Here are some significant distinctions between the two cameras:

Size and Weight:

Compared to the RED cameras, the ALEXA Mini is smaller and lighter, which makes it easier to handle and use in tight spaces and tough environments.

Image quality:

Both RED and ALEXA Mini cameras are known for taking high-quality photos, but RED cameras usually have a wider dynamic range and deeper color depth than ALEXA Mini cameras. On the other hand, the ALEXA Mini is known for its natural color reproduction and accurate skin tones.


RED cameras are usually more expensive than the ALEXA Mini, especially when you add in the extra costs of lenses, media, and accessories.


The ALEXA Mini is part of the ARRI ecosystem, which includes products like the ARRIRAW codec and the ARRI Look Library that work well with each other. This can make the ALEXA Mini a better choice for productions that already have ARRI equipment because it can work better with it.

 In the end, a filmmaker or cinematographer would choose between the ARRI ALEXA Mini and the RED camera based on things like the size and scale of the production, the image quality they want, their budget, and the workflow and system they already use.
