Sony PMW-F5 (PMWF5) Super 35mm Full HD 4K CMOS Sensor Compact CineAlta Camcorder - Records HD/2K on SxS memory plus 16-bit RAW 2K/4K output

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 colour reproduction and greater clarity. The camera offers robust built-in recording modes, all with vibrant 4:2:2 colour. 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.



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

Multiple recording formats include MPEG-2 HD422, MPEG4 SStP*, XAVC 2K*/HD 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 to120 fps XAVC 2K/HD* internally and 120 fps RAW 2K onto the AXS-R5.

*Expected as a future upgrade.
** Recording onto the optional AXS-R5 recorder.

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



The F5 is exceptionally small, light and modular, letting you build up the right configuration for each job – or each shot. As well as the choice of formats and internal and external recording options, you can attached 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 provides for hand-held and shoulder-mounted shooting.
