About the Sony PMW-F5 Camera

PLEASE NOTE: There is a current Firmware Upgrade (v7.0) for the F5 and F55 Camcorders, Please see the DOCUMENTATION tab for more details

The PMW-F5 CineAlta allows you to shoot spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor.

Simultaneous recording on internal high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards and RAW 2K/4K recording on sleek AXSM™ memory cards using the optional bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder, designed specifically to attach seamlessly to the F55 and F5 cameras. There is also high speed shooting up to120 fps XAVC 2K/HD* internally and 120 fps RAW 2K onto the AXS-R5.

Lightweight modular design to maximise versatility in 2D and 3D.
The F5 is exceptionally small, light and modular, letting you build up the right configuration for each job – or each shot. As well as the choice of formats and internal and external recording options, you can attached a variety of viewfinders, including the revolutionary optional DVF-EL100 OLED viewfinder, PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses, including second-generation Sony PL-mount lenses, and extra long-life Olivine – Lithium Iron Phosphate – batteries. The chassis is only slightly wider than a typical PL-mount prime lens, perfect for 3D rigs. An optional shoulder rig provides for hand-held and shoulder-mounted shooting.

*Expected as a future upgrade.

AXS-R5 records onto ASXM memory cards
The bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder records onto high-capacity AXSM memory cards, which are compatible with an affordable optional USB 3.0 reader, the AXS-CR1. Once on a PC, the RAW files can be screened using Sony’s free RAW Viewer software. AXSM memory provides a super fast, affordable format for sensational quality recordings.

16-bit RAW 2K/4K recording options with bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder
Capture RAW at your choice of resolutions: the camera’s native 4K or beautiful, derived 2K. RAW recording preserves the greatest latitude for colour correction and other post processes. Sony’s 16-bit recording captures more tonal values than the human eye can differentiate. Sony RAW retains 16 times as many Red, Green and Blue gradations as 12-bit RAW and 64 times as many tones per channel as 10-bit recording. Sony’s 16-bit linear RAW is also the ideal point of entry into the 16-bit linear Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow.

Super 35mm equivalent 4K single-chip CMOS sensor
Sony’s 4K image sensor enables a single camera to provide gorgeous, super-sampled HD and 2K while preparing you for the 4K future. With 11.6 megapixels (total) and 8.9 megapixels (effective), the Sony 4K CMOS sensor captures a true 4K 4096 x 2160 DCI-standard cinema image.

Choice of HD/2K internal recording formats
The F5 CineAlta camera allows you a choice of internal recording formats in addition to 16-bit RAW 2K/4K recording output onto the AXS-R5. The camera incorporates high-speed SxS PRO+ memory card recording that allows the choice of: 8-bit MPEG-2 HD422, 50Mbps; 10-bit XAVC 2K*/HD 100Mbps; and SR Codec 10-bit MPEG4 SStP 220, 440 and 880Mbps*. All formats can be recorded at a range of interlace and progressive frame rates (see camera specifications for precise details).

*Expected as a future upgrade.

High speed shooting up to 120 fps 2K internally and 120 fps 2K RAW with optional AXS-R5 recorder
The F5 features high-data-rate on-board XAVC HD recordings up to 60 fps with a free planned upgrade to XAVC 2K/HD recording at 120 fps. It also offers 120 fps 2K RAW with the optional AXS-R5 outboard recorder and a planned upgrade, achieving the high frame rates, while retaining exceptional, 16-bit image quality.

Next generation high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards
The PMW-F5 records internally onto SxS memory. High-speed shooting and the highest quality recording options require next-generation SxS recording media – Sony’s 64 GB* SxS PRO+ memory card – which can be read by the next-generation USB card reader, the SBAC-US20.

* 1 GB equals one billion bytes, a portion of which is used for data management functions.

Real world workflows
Sony understands a fundamental truth: working cameras require practical workflows. That’s why the F5 is part of a larger production platform that includes affordable media cards, affordable card readers, free RAW Viewer software and compatibility with popular NLEs and finishing tools.

Vast exposure latitude to 14 f-stops
The ability to render tones from deepest shadows to brightest highlights is a crucial test of any digital camera. The F5 excels, with an impressive 14 stops of exposure latitude, extraordinary low-light sensitivity and extremely low noise in the blacks.

Simultaneous RAW and onboard camera SxS recording
Sony provides a coordinated “off-line, on-line” workflow with simultaneous recording to internal SxS cards and the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder. For seamless conforming in post, you get matching time code, start frame, stop frame, file names and other metadata. The camera supports the following RAW + Onboard combinations: RAW 4K/2K + XAVC 2K*/HD and RAW 4K/2K + MPEG-2 HD422.

* Expected as a future upgrade.

Choice of viewfinders includes amazing OLED technology
A digital interface on the PMW-F5 allows for a variety of optional viewfinders, including the DVF-EL100.This 0.7-inch* viewfinder has the incredible clarity of 1280 x 720 High Definition, plus superb OLED brightness, contrast and response. The DVF-L350 3.5-inch* LCD viewfinder has higher resolution (960 x 540) than previous Sony viewfinders, plus ten times the contrast. And the eyepiece flips up for direct monitoring. The DVF-L700 compact 7-inch* LCD view finder enables high resolution when shooting in 2K and 4K, not to mention pixel-for-pixel 1920 x 1080 representation of your HD images.

*Viewable area, measured diagonally.

Optional shoulder rig
The optional Sony shoulder rig provides comfortable handheld operation, hour after hour. The rig is sturdy, lightweight and features industry-standard rosettes on both sides for quick and easy attachment of third-party hand grips and other accessories.

Small lightweight design for added versatility in 3D
The small size of the PMW-F5 is particularly welcome in stereoscopic 3D shooting. The chassis is only slightly wider than a typical PL mount prime lens, perfect for both mirror rigs and side-by-side configurations.

Incredible flexibility with the choice of PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses
The F5 is designed to accommodate PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses. With the PL-mount adaptor, you can take advantage of acclaimed cine optics from Angénieux, Canon, Carl Zeiss, Cooke, FUJIFILM, Leica and more. Slip off the supplied PL-mount adaptor to reveal the native FZ mount with 18 mm flange focal distance. It’s perfect for accepting commercially available adaptors for still lenses, including Canon EF, Canon FD, Nikon DX, Nikon G, Leica M and even 2/3-inch broadcast B4 lenses. There’s also Sony’s game-changing FZ-mount auto focus servo zoom: the SCL-Z18X140.

Intuitive one-touch interface
Carefully designed with significant input from cinematographers, the PMW-F5 provides an incredibly rich range of controls. And the interface is nicely intuitive. Instead of diving through menus, you get direct, one-touch access to key shooting parameters including frame rate, shutter speed, colour temperature, ISO sensitivity and gamma. Assignable buttons mean that favourite adjustments are always at your fingertips.

A new generation of Sony PL-mount lenses
The PMW-F5 works with Sony’s second generation, cost-effective PL mount prime lenses. Thanks to refined glass, all are certified for 4K capture, while minimizing geometric distortion, vignetting and breathing. A 9-blade iris delivers beautiful bokehs. The focus rings rotate 240°. The series includes focal lengths of 20, 25, 35, 50, 85 and 135 mm. For easy lens changes, all have the same T2.0 aperture, the same external diameter, matte box diameter, and gear locations for follow focus and aperture. All are the same size except for the 135 mm.

Wide choice of connections
The camera offers numerous connections to suit your workflow, including four HD-SDI jacks, HDMI®, USB, DC in connection, a removable XLR audio module and a removable time code/genlock module. The XLR inputs accept balanced analogue signals, provide 48-Volt phantom power and will accept four channels of AES/EBU digital audio with an expected firmware upgrade.

Long-life Olivine battery and quick charger
The F5 takes advantage of Sony’s innovative 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 camera is also compatible with Sony’s BP-GL95A, GL65A, L80S and L60S batteries, which use the BC-L70 and L160 chargers.
