Sony F35 Camera Now Offers 12-bit processing
Sony Electronic’s F35 digital cinematography camera system—already used on several high-profile motion pictures, and TV series—is being enhanced this summer to deliver a more effective exposure index workflow at ratings from 640 to 1000, making it ideal for the demanding lighting conditions of motion picture, episodic television and 3D productions. In order to make the best use of the camera’s superb image quality, Sony also plans to upgrade the F35 to real time 12-bit RGB workflow capabilities later this year with its next-generation HDCAM-SR recoding technology.
Since its introduction, the F35 camera, with its full RGB 4:4:4 capability from image capture to recording has become widely accepted for its high picture quality. The wide dynamic range of the F35 enables scene luminance exposures with a superior signal-to-noise ratio, and an 800 Exposure Index can effectively be achieved using S-Log to ensure capturing 12 stops of dynamic range.
In addition to enhancing the capabilities of the F35, Sony has been actively participating in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Image Interchange Framework (IIF) Project for next-generation motion picture workflows and will be supporting IIF and the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES).
