Sony’s F55 is an incredible new addition to our cinema camera fleet. Here’s a quick rundown: it has a 4K Super 35mm sized sensor, with a base ISO of 1250. It has a global shutter which eliminates the “jello cam” artifacts typical of most CMOS chips. It has built-in Neutral Density filters. Its electronic viewfinder is the best we’ve seen, and uses organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology. The body is very small, light and power efficient.
Its unique design means almost any lens ever made can mate to it, and we supply it with a PL mount, or an adaptor to use Canon EF lenses. Both mounts pass-through industry standard power and data connections. What does that mean? Well, on our Fujinon Cabrio lenses, the built-in zoom handle/motor works with no outside connections or wires to get in the way. If you decide to use Canon’s DSLR lenses, it means image stabilization and electronic iris controls work. We’ve equipped our F55 with Vocus brand top and side cheeseplates, as well as their shoulder mount and tripod quick-release plate. All of these features add up to a “film” camera with unprecedented capabilities for shoulder use.
Tightly integrated modular construction allows you to easily add or subtract features based on your needs. For example, it comes with on-board 10-bit recording to SxS+ cards, and that includes not only HD, but onboard recording of 4K images too, in an easily editable non-RAW format. However, by adding Sony’s RAW module, one can record in 16-bit 4K for unmatched image quality at up to 60 frames per second. And since High Definition is one quarter the resolution of 4K, all of that bandwidth can be used for high frame rates when shooting HD. Think about it: unmatched range for colour timing, at 240 frames per second. Super!
