Super 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor with PL lens mount CineAlta camcorder recording full HD / SD
A New Era of Super 35mm Digital Production
The PMW-F3 is part of the CineAlta 24P family of digital cinematography products and its support for multiple frame rates includes a filmic 23.98P as well as S-Log workflows.
Sony's Exmor™ Super35 CMOS sensor was designed with the benefit of two decades experience in Digital Cinematography, pioneering digital HD acquisition for feature films and broadcast TV through the legendary CineAlta product range. It brings a true 'film look' and superior image quality into reach for independent movies, pop promos, commercials and other applications, as well as making the PMW-F3L an ideal B-camera for high-end feature film production.
The PMW-F3L is supplied with an industry standard PL Mount adaptor, providing compatibility with industry standard 35mm lenses. (Also available is the PMW-F3K with three 35mm lenses.)
Exceptional flexibility is a key feature of the F3 along with multiple workflow options. XDCAM EX's proven high-speed, intuitive workflow offers seamless integration with leading nonlinear editing software - as standard. In addition, a 10bit 4:2:2 HD-SDI output opens up hybrid recording possibilities with a variety of external recording devices. And from April 2011, a Dual Link HD-SDI option will enable 10bit RGB uncompressed signal output - ideal for the high-end film production.
