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."
