PMW-F55

Super 35mm 4K CMOS sensor compact CineAlta camera records HD/2K/4K on SxS memory plus 16-bit RAW 2K/4K output

Sony 4K sensor for gorgeous, super-sampled HD, 2K and 4K

The PMW-F55 CineAlta camera shoots spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor. You get superb dynamic range, the widest colour gamut, and pristine image quality, whether you shoot in HD, 2K, QFHD or 4K.

  • Multiple recording formats includes HD/2K/QFHD/4K on SxS memory and 16-bit RAW 2K/4K on AXSM™ media

    Multiple recording formats include MPEG-2 HD422, MPEG4 SStP, XAVC 2K/HD, XAVC QFHD/4K and 16-bit RAW 2K/4K*. You can have simultaneous recording on internal high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards and RAW 2K/4K recording on sleek AXSM™ memory cards using the optional bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder, designed specifically to attach seamlessly to the F55 and F5 cameras. There is also high speed shooting up to 240 fps RAW 2K and 60 fps in RAW 4K recording onto the AXS-R5. Recording directly in Apple ProRes codec and Avid DNxHD codec are also available options.**

    * Recording onto the optional AXS-R5 recorder.
    ** Requires CBK-55PD codec board.

  • Lightweight modular design to maximise versatility in 2D and 3D

    The F55 is exceptionally small, light and modular, letting you build up the right configuration for each job – or each shot. The camera includes cache recording functions and has an easy-to-access customised user menu that sits on top of the setup menu. As well as the choice of formats and internal and external recording options, you can attach a variety of viewfinders, including the revolutionary optional DVF-EL100 OLED viewfinder, PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses, including second-generation Sony PL-mount lenses, and extra long-life Olivine – Lithium Iron Phosphate – batteries. The chassis is only slightly wider than a typical PL-mount prime lens, perfect for 3D rigs. An optional shoulder rig (CBK-55BK) provides best ergonomics, flexibility and usability for shoulder operation.

  • Version 5.0 firmware update

    Version 5.0 firmware increases the functionality of the PMW-F55/F5. Upgraded functions include: DNR (Noise suppression) in Cine-EI mode; Memory A/B White Balance in Custom mode; assignable Colour Bars On/Off; assignable VF Magnification On/Off; changing FPS (STEP) with Menu knob (push for 2 seconds); the Double Speed VF setting remains while switching HFR On to Off; and simultaneous recording on SStP 422 SQ at 59.94i (SStP and MPEG 50). Version 5.0 also supports additional codecs, including ProRes 4444* with the installation of the optional CBK-55PD codec board. It is also possible to assign EI value to the Gain Switch in Cine-EI mode** and 3200K/4300K/5500K to White A/B/Preset switch in Cine-EI mode**. Wireless Audio settings can also be set via the “WRR” page**.

    * Requires CBK-55PD firmware update 2015.
    ** These functions require the attachment of CBK-55BK build-up kit.
