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

Same connector. Everything the same , just wider and heavier as you stated.

The Alexa 65 does use more power than the other Alexa cameras, so it is best to run it at 24V.

I was convinced the Alexa 65 was the only one in the family that could not be fed with 12V .... Only 24V.    

Bueler ?

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

This is the one I have access to and couldn't seem to make work. I would assume jerry's is very similar but it's worth a try. Or at least a phone call to him to ask if he knows if his plate could work w 65.

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.
