Sony F65 Rental Digital Motion Picture Camera
The F65 is Sony's brand-new top-end digital motion picture camera. At the heart of the F65
camera is Sony's newly developed 8K CMOS sensor, which delivers pristine HD, 2K, and true 4K
resolution today and will go far beyond 4K in the future, as the industry needs evolve.
Main Features for Sony F65 Camera Rental
- Unique 8K CMOS sensor with approx. 20M pixels
- Wide color gamut, ideal for AMPAS-IIF workflow
- Rotary shutter model to prevent motion artifacts
- 1 to 120p high frame rate image capturing
- 16 bit Linear RAW output
- HD-SDI output
- Built-in ND filter
- Wi-Fi control from tablet device (In Development)
The Sony F65 Rental Camera exceeds the resolution of any previous digital motion picture camera - (August 2011)
The F65 image sensor has the most photosites of any digital motion picture camera (20 million) and is the world's first to offer a dedicated green photosite for every pixel in the 4K output image. The F65 can provide exquisite images of supersampling 1080p high definition, perfect for the time-is-money pressures of episodic television. The F65 can also output 16-bit linear RAW, which preserves all the information obtained from every photosite on the image sensor—up to 8K of resolution. This gives you phenomenal ability to demosaic, adjust grayscale, color correct, composite and even re-frame the image in post.The advantage here is ability to derive 4K, 2K, HD from 16-bit linear RAW.
SUPERSAMPLING HD AND 2K
Even if your postproduction workflow and deliverable are currently high definition or 2K, the 20 million photosites of the F65 deliver a powerful imaging advantage. The difference is "supersampling." All cameras deliver high contrast on large image areas. But as the detail gets finer and finer, contrast suffers. Thanks to the new image sensor, the F65 contrast remains strong, even in fine details. So the picture is dramatically sharper.
EXPOSURE LATITUDE AND SENSITIVITY
Conventionally, increased resolution comes at the sacrifice of other photographic qualities. But the F65 is no conventional camera. It takes advantage of Sony's expertise in creating ever smaller photosites with ever higher performance in sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio. Thanks to Sony CMOS advances, the F65 empowers the cinematographer with prodigious exposure latitude, high sensitivity and extremely low noise.
Many HD cameras are limited to the Rec.709 color space. While this produces broadcast-legal color for television productions, it still falls short of motion picture film. The Sony F65 features a new Color Filter Array on the sensor, along with a 3D lookup table (LUT) and proprietary color management systems. In this way, the F65 can shoot in either Rec.709 or F65 Gamut, which actually exceeds the SMPTE specification for color negative film in every direction.
The F65 camera is designed to work with the docking SR-R4 SRMASTER field recorder, which captures your work to solid-state SRMemory cards. Here is file-based recording of phenomenal versatility, capacity and image quality. Best of all, the SR-R4 is just one part of a comprehensive, next-generation production system that includes field recorders, studio decks, a transfer station as well as the SRMemory cards.
The Sony F65 Rental Camera adheres to the 1.9:1 aspect ratio of the DCI projection standard (4096 x 2160 or 2048 x 1080). This canvas enables a choice of picture composition as needed: 1.85:1, 1.78:1, 1.66:1, 1.33:1, 2.35 spherical, 1.3x anamorphic, or 2x anamorphic cropped.
To support slow motion and fast motion, the F65 provides over- and undercranking at frame rates of 1 to 60 frames per second (4Kx2K resolution), and up to 120 frames per second (4Kx1K resolution). In both modes, you get high-speed shots without "windowing," crop factor or change of effective focal length.
Typical CMOS sensor cameras are prone to "rolling" shutter defects, where the exposure timing of each row of pixels is slightly offset from the next. Row after row, these differences can trigger geometric distortion in moving objects or camera movements, particularly visible in the horizontal movement of objects with strong vertical lines. Rolling shutter artifacts are especially troublesome in 3D mirror rigs, where one camera is upside down. The artifacts in the left camera don't match those in the right, causing unwanted disparities. Rolling shutter also incurs "flash banding" where a strobe light illuminates only a horizontal band across the frame. As with other Sony cameras, the F65 uses an advanced CMOS design to reduce rolling shutter artifacts to a bare minimum.
