    The Sony PMW-F5 CineAlta Digital Cinema Camera features an 8.9 MP Super 35mm image sensor capable of capturing 2K and HD internally in Sony's XAVC codec onto SxS PRO+ memory cards, and 4K and 2K RAW to an optional Sony AXS-R5 external recorder. It features 14 stops of dynamic range, applicable to both RAW and XAVC recording as long as S-Log is turned on, for truly film-like rendering of highlights and shadows. The camera natively features an FZ mount and includes a PL-mount adapter. 

    Out of the box, the F5 records 2K and HD in up to 59.94p in XAVC. With the latest firmware updates installed, it will be able to record 4K RAW from 1p to 60p and 2K RAW from 1p to 240p to an AXS-R5 recorder, and 1080p 4:2:2 from 1fps to 180fps internally in XAVC. It will also be able to record SStP SR at 4:4:4 internally when you select RGB mode at 440 Mbps instead of YUV 4:2:2. All RAW recording is in 16-bit.

    Highly Modular Design
    In addition to the AXS-R5 recorder, a digital interface on the F5 allows for a variety of optional viewfinders. DVF-EL100 is a 0.7" OLED viewfinder with 1280 x 720 resolution. DVF-L350 is a 3.5" LCD viewfinder with 960 x 540 resolution, and the eyepiece flips up for direct monitoring. DVF-L700 is a 7" LCD viewfinder with 1920 x 1080 resolution for monitoring Full HD pixel-for-pixel. Other modular components include the optional Sony shoulder rig, which features industry-standard rosettes on both sides for quick and easy attachment of third-party hand grips and other accessories.
    Optional AXS-R5 "Bolt-on" Recorder
    The optional AXS-R5 recorder is designed to dock on the rear of the PMW-F5 and enables 4K and 2K resolution video recording in 16-bit RAW. The AXS-R5 also facilitates high speed frame rates of up to 120 fps in 2K RAW and simultaneous RAW + on-board SxS recording. The recorder uses Sony's newly developed AXSM memory cards, which are compatible with an optional USB 3.0 reader (AXS-CR1). RAW files can be screened using Sony's free RAW Viewer software. (AXS-R5 is sold separately.)
    Native FZ-Mount and PL-Mount Adapter
    The F5 is designed to accommodate a wide range of 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 an 18mm flange focal distance. The FZ-mount provides an interface for native FZ lenses like Sony's SCL-Z18X140 auto focus servo zoom lens or a range of adaptors for still lenses, including Canon EF, Canon FD, Nikon F, Leica M and more.
    Dynamic Range Rated at 14 Stops
    The ability to render a range of exposure values from deepest shadows to brightest highlights is a crucial test of any digital camera. The F5 is capable of an impressive 14 stops of exposure latitude, low-light sensitivity and low noise in the blacks. The digital sensor's dynamic range approaches that of traditional motion picture film.
    Long-life Olivine Battery and Quick Charger
    The F5 supports Sony's 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.
    Intuitive One-touch Interface
    Designed with significant input from cinematographers, the F5 features an intuitive interface for a range of controls. Instead of diving through menus, you get direct, one-touch access to key shooting parameters including frame rate, shutter speed, color temperature, ISO sensitivity and gamma. Assignable buttons mean that your favorite adjustments are always at your fingertips.
    Wide Choice of Connections
    The F5 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.
