The Sony PMW-F5 is a camera engineered with cinematographers needs in mind for today and tomorrow, with planned firmware updates with more frame rates, more operating features and more recording options in the months and years to come. The 4K CMOS imaging sensor in the PMW-F5 features 8.9 megapixels (effective) and records super-sampled HD and 2K while preparing you for the 4K future.
The new Sony DSP gives you many recording options. The camera records to SXS cards internally at 50 Mbps 4:2:2 8-bit, records to the Sony HDCAM SR (SStP) format at 220 Mbps 4:2:2, with plans for 440 Mbps 4:4:4 compression coming sometimes after release. Additionally, the camera can record to the new XAVC codec, which offers intra-frame 100Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit performance. The F5 can record internally up to 60fps in XAVC HD or 2K, and up to 120fps with the planned update.
Sony has simplified the interface and made the menus no more than three layers deep. The operator’s side has an LCD screen, which displays the basic camera settings including frame rate, shutter speed, color temperature, ISO sensitivity and gamma. On the side of the camera you’ll also find assignable buttons, and a large jog wheel for moving though the menus.
