Sony agrandit sa gamme de caméras à large capteur avec les nouvelles caméras 4K PMW-F55 et PMW-F5

Sony grows large sensor camera family with new 4K camera systems with PMW-F55 and PMW-F5

Les nouvelles caméras PMW-F55 et PMW-F5 CineAlta 4K offrent des options créatives sans précédent pour la production HD/2K/QFHD/4K (PMW-F55) et 2K/HD (PMW-F5). Les deux caméras proposent le support de plusieurs codecs dans le tout nouveau XAVC MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 de Sony, le codec ST (MPEG SStP) et le standard de l’industrie haute définition, le codec XDCAM 50Mbps 4:2:2. L’enregistrement se fait sur le nouveau format de Sony SxS, Sxs PRO+, ce qui signifie qu’il est possible d’enregistrer en XAVC HD High Frame Rate et en 4K jusqu’à 60fps (sur la PMW-F55) et XAVC HD High Frame Rate sur la PMW-F5.

En plus de l’enregistrement sur SxS PRO+, la PMW-55 et la PMW-F5 peuvent aussi être reliées au nouvel enregistreur AXS-R5 RAW. L’enregistrement en Slow Motion jusqu’à 240fps (PMW-F55) et jusqu’à 120fps (PMW-F5) est possible en RAW 4K sur la mémoire de l’AXS.

La PMW-F55 possède un Global Shutter qui permet d’éliminer la déformation et la bande de flash des Rolling Shutter et comporte aussi une gamme de couleurs plus large pour un rendu exceptionnel. Les caméras se distinguent aussi par par la grande latitude d’exposition (14 arrêts), la haute sensibilité et le bruit réduit.

New Options for Monitoring
The PMW-F55 can connect to the new 4K 30-inch LCD monitor, PVM-X300, using four 3G-SDI interfaces to monitor pictures at 4096×2160 resolution at up to 60p, while recording and playing back XAVC 4K images. Similarly, it is also possible to connect directly to the 84″ BRAVIA 4K LED TV for large-screen monitoring of the camera’s 4K 60P images (at resized horizontal resolution of 3860 pixels).

PL Lens System – The Second Generation
The PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 cameras continue Sony’s efforts to offer the most flexible lens options. A PL-mount lets users choose cinematic lenses from suppliers such as Angénieux, ARRI, Canon, Carl Zeiss, Cooke, FUJIFILM and Leica.

Sony is also launching a second generation of cost-effective PL mount prime lenses. Each is certified for 4K capture, and is designed to minimize geometric distortion, vignetting and breathing. A 9-blade iris delivers beautiful bokehs and the focus rings rotate 240°. The new lens series includes focal lengths of 20, 25, 35, 50, 85 and 135 mm. For easy lens changes, each has the same T2.0 aperture, the same external diameter, matte box diameter, and gear locations for follow focus and aperture. All are the same height except for the 135 mm lens.

Shooters can use stills lenses by removing the supplied PL-mount adaptor to reveal the native FZ mount. This makes it easy to accept commercially available adaptors for third-party lenses, including Canon® EF, Canon FD, Nikon® DX, Nikon G, Leica® M and even 2/3-inch B4 lenses. A third option is the use of Sony FZ-Mount lenses with auto focus servo zoom (model SCL-Z18X140.)

Viewfinders
Using a new digital interface, PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 users can take advantage of a new series of high-quality OLED and LCD viewfinders. The DVF-EL100 OLED viewfinder measures 0.7-inches with 1280 x 720 HD resolution, superb brightness, contrast and response. The DVF-L350 3.5-inch LCD viewfinder offers 10 times the contrast of previous Sony LCD viewfinders, with a flip-up eyepiece for direct monitoring. A third option is the full HD DVF-L700. This compact 7-inch LCD viewfinder enables high resolution when shooting in 2K and 4K, with pixel-to-pixel 1920 x 1080 representation of HD images.

New RAW Recording System
Sony is also unveiling the AXSM™ Access Memory System for 2K*/4K RAW recording, based on Sony’s unique recording technology. Optimised for this new platform is the AXSM memory card (512 GB capacity, model AXS-512S24), using the generic file system exFAT. Users can record 4K RAW data up to 60 fps and 2K RAW up to 240 fps**, with a 300MB/s sustained transfer speed. PC-friendly operation is enabled through use of the AXS-CR1 card reader, offering a USB 3.0 interface for high speed transfer.

Additionally, the new AXS-R5 RAW recorder directly docks onto the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55, for an extremely elegant and compact recording system for 2K** and 4K RAW recording.

New Recording Media
The cameras support Sony’s new high-speed, enhanced versions of its SxS PRO memory cards: the “SxS PRO+(PLUS)” series (in 128 and 64 GB capacities, models SBP-128B and SBP-64B). Based on the format long used in Sony’s XDCAM EX camcorders, the cards support XAVC 4K and XAVC HD high frame rate recording, and can be directly inserted into the cameras.

New Battery and Charger
The PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 cameras take advantage of Sony’s new BP-FL75 battery pack, which uses Olivine-Lithium Iron Phosphate-instead of conventional Lithium Ion cathodes. The result is a substantial increase in charge-discharge cycles, compared to previous Sony batteries. The Olivine battery works with Sony’s BC-L90 quick charger. The new battery supports outstanding mobility for on-set shooting enabling two times higher speed charging than current chargers and a maximum 150 minutes of consecutive shooting.

The PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 cameras are also compatible with Sony’s BP-GL95A, GL65A, L80S and L60S batteries, which use the BC-L70 and L160 chargers.

Shoulder Rig
Delivering advances in ergonomics specifically requested by cinematographers, the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 feature Sony’s newest shoulder rig for extra stability and comfort. The rig is sturdy, lightweight and uses industry-standard rosettes on both sides for quick and easy attachment of third-party hand grips and other accessories.

Pricing and Availability
The new cameras are scheduled to be available in February 2013, with suggested list pricing to be announced. For more information, visit www.pro.sony.eu/pro/product/f55 or www.pro.sony.eu/pro/product/f5.
