The PMW-F5 CineAlta camera shoots spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor, which can shoot 2K and up to 120fps internally. The PMW-F5 offers superior, super-sampled pictures with noticeably high contrast, rich colour-reproduction and clarity. 

The camera shoots in multiple recording-formats including Sony's brand new future-proof XAVC, and has been designed to be lightweight and modular for greater flexibility. The camera offers robust built-in recording modes via dual SxS card slots, all with vibrant 4:2:2 colour. When used with the Sony AXS-R5 external recorder, the F5 offers the amazing precision of 16-bit linear RAW 2K/4K recording and high-speed shooting up to 250fps without cropping.
