Note to Filmmakers: Our F3 cameras come loaded with the latest free firmware available at this time(v1.10), as well as, the complete set of Abelcine Picture Profiles. The new CBK-RGB01 4:4:4 Upgrade is available here.
The PMW-F3L is the first compact camcorder to be a member of the legendary Sony CineAlta family. Key features include:
- Super35mm-size CMOS sensor. This sensor offers a variety of advantages over smaller sensors, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range. The PMW-F3’s chip is on a par with Hollywood film cameras, in terms of field of view and depth of field. That means complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses and consistency of vision for cinematographers used to shooting on 35mm film.
- Low Power Consumption. Power consumption of 24 watts gives the camera up to 3 hours on a single battery and also minimizes heat generation.
- SxS Media. The F3 records natively to SxS media, using the MPEG-2 long GOP codec in an 8-bit 4:2:0 color space. More demanding applications can utilize the camera’s dual-link HD-SDI ports to output to an external recorder in 10-bit 4:2:2.
- Native 23.98p Recording. In combination with advanced creative features such as selectable gamma curves, this camcorder is ideal for cinema production. In 1440 × 1080/23.98p (SP) mode, images are handled as 23.98p and recorded as 59.94i signals through means of 3:2 pull-down.
The camera comes with a PL mount adapter. This camera does not include an AC adapter.
