Arriflex 416 is a motion picture camera product line created by Arri in 2006. This camera line was introduced in large part to accommodate new lenses of larger diameter which physically interfered with the Arri 16 SR 3 viewfinder. The 416 camera series is designed for 16mm filmmaking in the Super 16 format. The 416 series has some features that are derived from Arri's 35mm cameras. The 416 series is compatible with some 35mm camera accessories, such as PL-mount lenses, base plates, matte boxes, follow focus units, etc.

The 416 is used on movie and TV drama productions such as Bronson, Canterbury's Law, The Walking Dead, the 2008 movies Ivory and The Wave, Black Swan, Dhobi Ghat, and Fruitvale Station.[1] It was also used on the 2015 films, Suffragette, and Carol [2][3] And the 2016 war drama Anthropoid.
