Sony PMW-F55 (PMWF55) Super 35mm Full HD 4K CMOS Sensor Compact CineAlta Camcorder - 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, incorporating a revolutionary electronic global shutter to eliminate rolling shutter distortions. You get superb dynamic range, the widest colour gamut, and pristine image quality, whether you shoot in HD, 2K or 4K.
Multiple recording formats includes HD/2K/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.



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

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. 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 provides for hand-held and shoulder-mounted shooting.
