Recently, I was able to get my hands on the new Sony PMW-F3. This compact camera features a 35mm sized sensor and all the formats and functions of the EX1R and EX3. Sony has also incorporated several features previously only available on the highest end cameras, including dual link HD-SDI output (for 4:2:2 1080 50/59.94P as standard; and RGB 1080 23.98/25/29.97PsF as an option) and S-Log gamma modes. Both of these features will be add on features in the future. The sensor is a new design with pixels four times larger than those on a Sony DSLR, which makes it very sensitive and very low noise. We are now taking orders on both the F3L model (without lenses) and F3K model which comes with three Sony branded PL lenses. Watch my video above to learn more about this exciting new camera.
