    Sony’s F55 is an incredible cinema camera, with a feature set that is only now being matched by newer cameras.  It has a 4K Super 35mm sized sensor, with a base ISO of 1250.  That global shutter that is suddenly all the rage?  The F55 has had it for years.  Built-in Neutral Density filters?  Got em.  RAW recording?  How does 16 bit uncompressed RAW recording sound?  4 channels of digital audio over AES? Had it for years.

    We can provide an EF mount for the F55, but really it’s designed to go out with the cinema PL mount.  Both mounts pass-through industry standard power and data connections.  What does that mean?  If you decide to use Canon’s DSLR lenses, it means image stabilization and electronic iris controls work.  If you go for one of our Fujinon Cabrio lenses, it means power and data are passed through to the lens with no eternal cables so the built-in zoom handgrip is ready for use with no cables.  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.  It comes with on-board 10-bit recording to SxS+ cards in an easily editable non-RAW format. However, by taking 30 seconds and 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!
