New Sony “F” Cinema Camera Coming October 30

Sony F Teaser

Based on this teaser image posted in Sony’s Super 35mm Facebook page, it appears that Sony will be dropping a new F-class Super 35mm cinema camera in October.  All reasonable speculation points to a Sony F5 situated above the current 1080p-equipped F3.

Given that Sony’s lower-end NEX lineup features a high-frame rate, 4K camera (the NEX-FS700), it is likely that the Sony F5 would also get the 4K resolution and possibly a high frame rate option as well.  If that feature set were to hit, it would be expected to be in the $20k price range and would likely compete with the RED Scarlet and Epic market.
