PMW- F55 CineAlta

The Sony PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K Digital Cinema Camera features an 8.9MP Super 35mm image sensor, capable of capturing 4K, 2K and HD resolution video in a variety of formats via the camera’s internal recorder. The F55 is among the first digital motion picture cameras with a global shutter, which completely eliminates motion skew and other “rolling” shutter distortions. Sony has designed the F55 as the foundation of an exceptionally versatile, modular system.

High speed shooting with the F55 creates exquisite slow motion. Capture 2K RAW at 240fps for playback at 24 p. You’ll get 10 x super slow motion playback – perfect for catching the fine details of sports, stunts and explosions, as well as the exquisite beauty of the natural world.

Before the F55, 4K digital cinematography cameras all had one thing in common – they couldn’t save your 4K footage – at least not without some sort of external recorder. The F55 changes that completely. Turbo-charge your workflow with full 4096 x 2160 resolution, captured on board with the all-I-frame quality of Sony XAVC I recording at a highly practical 240 Mbps (24 p).
