Ranging from 12mm to 280mm, the ARRI Signature Prime lenses offer a unique look never seen before in cinema. Warm, smooth, skin; open shadow with crisps blacks, and bokeh like looking through a window in the rain. The timeless look of the signature prime will never be out of style.
Next-Generation LDS-2 lens data system
The Arri Signature Prime range is the first to incorporate Arri’s Next generation LDS2 lens data system, with high data rates and absolute encoders for fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lense data and can be licensed to other lense and camera manufacturer.
Detachable Magnetic Rear Filter Holder
The detachable ARRI Magnetic Rear Filter Holder for Signature lenses opens up all kinds of customized looks, without having to disassemble the lens. No other manufacturer offers this degree of creative customization across a range of matched primes and zooms.
The filter holder accommodates a wide variety of materials, allowing filmmakers to experiment as much as they want. Glass elements can be used to simulate vintage lenses, or anything from fishing line to stockings and vintage fabrics can be tried—each of them affecting bokeh, flaring, and diffusion in different ways.
Discover how retro filmmaking techniques such as nets, and diopters can help you customize the look of your Signature lenses.
Compatibility of Signature lenses
ARRI Signature Prime and Signature Zoom lenses are equipped with the LPL (Large Positive Locking) lens mount. A wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth allow LPL lenses to be small and lightweight, with a fast T-stop and pleasing bokeh—a combination of features that would not be possible with the old PL lens mount.
ARRI has shared LPL specifications openly and free-of-charge across the industry, establishing the LPL lens mount as a standard interface between cameras and lenses. ARRI LPL lens mounts are available for ALEXA 65, ALEXA LF, ALEXA Mini LF, ALEXA Classic/XT/SXT, ALEXA Mini and AMIRA cameras. In addition, third parties offer LPL lens mounts for cameras, director’s viewfinders, and lens testing tools, so ARRI Signatures and other LPL lenses can be universally used.
