New Sony F5 Camera!

To compliment our 2 new PMW-200 cameras, we just received one of the most exiting cameras on the market, the Sony PMW-F5.  This camera also gives us the look of our Canon 5D that we love, but with all of the efficiencies afforded by a true production digital cinema camera.  We are using a new Canon EF 2.8 16-35mm zoom lens on it along with the Canon EF 4.0 24-105.  In addition to the Sony initial offerings below, they are constantly adding options via firmware including high-speed recording and now 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 HDCamSR file formats!

From Sony: "Sony 4K sensor for gorgeous, super-sampled HD and 2K The PMW-F5 CineAlta camera shoots spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor. You get superior, super-sampled pictures with noticeably higher contrast, rich color reproduction and greater clarity. The camera offers robust built-in recording modes, all with vibrant 4:2:2 color. Irresistible options include the amazing precision of 16-bit linear RAW 2K/4K recording and high speed shooting at up to 120 fps without cropping."

Warhola Adds New Cameras to Lineup

To help out with our many, many, multi-camera shoots, Warhola has invested in the latest camera technology from Sony.  Two new PMW-200 cameras are on their way to Warhola Productions and Studios to help with the task of high-quality, high-definition, multi-camera shooting.  The Sony PMW-200's have larger sensors than their competition, resulting in shallower depth of field, light sensitivity, and low noise.  They are true broadcast cameras and meet or exceed the stringent EBU broadcast standards for long format production.  Using a 4:2:2 compression at 50 Megabits/second, these new cameras offer stunning quality at full 1080p resolution!  The high-quality recording capability combined with all of the professional features such as genlock and time-code I/O will prove to make us even more efficient than ever in the field or studio (it's hard to believe we could be even more efficient... I know!).
