The Sony PMW-F5 CineAlta Digital Cinema Camera features an 8.9 MP Super 35mm image sensor capable of capturing 2K and HD internally in Sony’s XAVC codec onto SxS PRO+ memory cards, and 4K and 2K RAW to an optional Sony AXS-R5 external recorder. It features 14 stops of dynamic range, applicable to both RAW and XAVC recording as long as S-Log is turned on, for truly film-like rendering of highlights and shadows. The camera natively features an FZ mount and includes a PL-mount adapter.
Out of the box, the F5 records 2K and HD in up to 59.94p in XAVC. With the latest firmware updates installed, it will be able to record 4K RAW from 1p to 60p and 2K RAW from 1p to 240p to an AXS-R5 recorder, and 1080p 4:2:2 from 1fps to 180fps internally in XAVC. It will also be able to record SStP SR at 4:4:4 internally when you select RGB mode at 440 Mbps instead of YUV 4:2:2. All RAW recording is in 16-bit.
