Do you like what you’re hearing so far?

Depending on the price point, this would be a direct competitor to cameras like the RED Epic and Scarlet.  It’s certainly situated above the current Sony F3 model. We’ll know more next week, as we’re just outside of a week from the official unveiling…

Sony F65 CineAlta

Initially unveiled at NAB back in April, Sony has officially launched its F65 CineAlta camera, which offers 4K resolution captured to 16 bit Linear RAW files. These massive files will chew up plenty of storage – with 60 minutes taking up 1TB, or 1 minute using 17GB of storage space.  [click to continue…]

At NAB 2011 today, Sony took the wraps off of its new F65 CineAlta camera, which offers 16-bit 4K RAW capture at up to 72 fps.  It will also shoot 2K resolution at 120 fps.  The F65 is a serious pro-level filmmaking tool.  It has an 8K sensor (approx. 20MP) in which a full half of the photosites in 4K output are green photosites – with the other half evenly split between red and blue.  Sony says, “This is twice the amount of green resolution compared with traditional 4K Bayer pattern sensors, providing a significant improvement in image resolution that is ideal for VFX processing.”

The Sony F65 is the big brother to the recently-announced Sony PMW-F3, along with its junior sibling, the Sony NEX-FS100.
