Want to take the ARRI AMIRA for a spin? Well, the camera is not widely available and prices start at $40,000, so checking it out might be a problem. But the good news is that ARRI came up with a creative and brilliant idea - the company released a great online app called "The AMIRA Camera Simulator". The camera manufacturer describes it as an interactive learning tool to familiarize yourself with the menu navigation of the new AMIRA Digital Camera. Now you don't need to own the AMIRA to play with it as the main user interface on the viewfinder shows a simulation of the real AMIRA camera in its first software version: "We demo all buttons of the view finder, the ND switch as well as the most controls and switches of the left side of the camera in a clearly arranged way. In a later version we will also add the audio panel."
To control the Simulator all you need to do is point your mouse cursor over any of the buttons - it is very simple and intuitive, so if you want to give it a try don't hesitate to follow this link and enjoy!
