The new F65 has an unbelievable Super 35mm 8k sensor with 20 Mega Pixels, thus raising the bar when in comes to HD acquisition at the point of shooting. It has resolution that is currently up to 4096x2160 (and designed to go up to 8k); it is beyond anything else on the market, and with HD (Sstp – Simple Studio Profile for longer recording times), 2k, and true 4k readily available, any DOP would be clamouring to get the chance to use this in their production.
It doesn’t stop there, Sony has also included its HDCAM-SR VTR format to back up the front end; creating a ‘Sony SDK’ (Software Development Kit) in which alliance partners can integrate RAW F65 workflow into post production tools (AJA, AVID, Da Vinci, Final Cut Pro, the list goes on. . .). Sony also has the SR-R4, an SR Master portable Recorder that is a 4k recording system (at 16bit RAW output onto SRMemory Cards – at speeds of up to 5Gbps) which provides digital media which is comparably cheaper for high end productions. This system also provides awesome on-set monitoring features for production teams and directors with its LUT (Lookup Table) designed so you can see the RAW data or almost finished article on-set.
The SR recording system is already in place around the world and with faster than real-time file transfers and easy archiving onto HDCAM-SR tapes, the versatility of the F65 and SR-R4 (F65 will be compatible to control from tablets, and to be used with Steadicam) this shows that Sony wants to transform digital video capture and recording media.
