The cat is out of the bag as Sony reveal their New PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K Super 35mm Sensor Camcorders.

Sony has now launched a pair of PL-Mounted CineAlta Cameras with a New Super 35mm Sensor which will be known as the PMW-F5 and the PMW-F55.

The PMW-F5 even though equipped with a 4K CMOS sensor will only provide you with 2K and HD resolution with a rolling shutter, whilst the up market PMW-F55 will provide 4K pictures as well as 2K and HD Video.  The PMW-F55 also has a global shutter, wider colour gamut.

Depending on your workflow these cameras offer a variety of ways to capture video to each camera. You are able to record MPEG-4 H.264 video or Sony’s SR MPEG-4 SSTP which can be recorded onto Sony’s new SxS PRO+ media. If however RAW footage is more to your liking then there is the new AXS-R5 Access Memory System for 2K & 4K RAW capturing. Using the latter system then the PMW-F5 is more than capable of grabbing up to 120fps slow motion in RAW HD, whilst the PMW-F55 can capture 240fps of video at 2k, putting bang in RED Epic-X territory.

These cameras are expected to ship around February 2013 and as of yet there is no idea on price.

    I have the pmw f3 and am very satisfied. My first impression of the new camera is good. I like the viewfinder instead of the LCD display and v-mount connector. the PMW-5 also has 4 channels of audio.
