Two new additions to the CineAlta™ camera family

November 1, 2012

In addition to XAVC, Sony is also announcing the launch of two new CineAlta™ 4K cameras, the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55. The new cameras join Sony’s established line-up of Super35mm cameras positioned between the PMW-F3 and the exceptional 8K-sensor F65 CineAlta Premium 4K camera. The PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 are equipped with newly developed Super35mm 4K CMOS image sensors and give content creators new levels of flexibility and creative options for HD, 2K or 4K acquisition and production.

Both cameras offer multi-codec support featuring Sony’s new XAVC MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, the SR codec (MPEG4 SStP) and the industry-standard High Definition XDCAM 50Mbps 4:2:2 codec. In-camera recording is to Sony’s new SxS media, SxS PRO+ (plus), which can be used to record XAVC in HD High Frame Rate and in 4K at up to 60fps (in the PMW-F55), and XAVC HD at High Frame Rate (in the PMW-F5). In addition to on-board recording onto SxS PRO+, the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 can also be connected to the new AXS-R5 RAW recorder for the capture of pristine images in RAW format.

Sony is also at an advanced stage of developing an HXR-IFR5 interface unit, allowing the Full-HD Super Slow Motion NEX-FS700E camcorder to capture stunning 4K RAW footage with the AXS-R5.

The PMW-F55 features a global shutter to eliminate rolling shutter skew and flash band, and features a wider colour gamut for exceptional colour reproduction. The cameras are further distinguished by wide (14 stops) exposure latitude, high sensitivity, and low noise. Customers can choose from a new selection of lenses and viewfinders, including the new DVF-EL100, a 0.7-inch high-visibility OLED device for the two cameras, to build a system that matches their particular requirements.
