Sony PMW-F5 - CineAlta Digital Cinema Camera
The Sony PMW-F5 CineAlta Digital Cinema Camera features an 8.9 MP Super 35mm image sensor, capable of capturing 2K(2K recording, 120 fps 2K, and high bit rate recording modes will require a firmware upgrade) and HD resolution video via the camera's internal recorder. Sony has designed the F5 as the foundation of a versatile, modular system. A key component of that system is the AXS-R5(sold separately) external recorder, which will enable the F5 to capture 4K and 2K files in 16-bit linear RAW.

Out of the box, the F5 is capable of capturing 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second, and a planned firmware upgrade will allow the camera to capture 2K video at up to 120 fps. The F5's imaging power is further bolstered by exceptional exposure latitude, which is rated at 14 stops of dynamic range for a truly film-like rendering of highlights and shadows. Additional firmware upgrades will enable the SR Codec for 10-bit 4:4:4 at up to 440 Mbps.

In keeping with Sony's mandate on versatility, the F5 will feature a native FZ-mount, which will provide an interface for Sony's SCL-Z18x140(sold separately) auto focus servo zoom lens as well as a wide range of lens adapters, such as the included PL-mount adapter. Regarding recording media, the F5 will use Sony's newly developed SxS PRO+ memory cards. Finally, Olivine Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries will provide a substantial increase in charge-discharge cycles, compared to previous Sony batteries.
