The Barber of Seville becomes the first opera to be filmed with Sonys 4K High Dynamic Range technology Posted: 29/10/2015
The Barber of Seville becomes the first opera to be filmed with Sonys 4K High Dynamic Range technology

After shooting the first real 4K HDR test at the 2015 TIM Cup final between Juventus and Lazio, Sony and DBW Communication have achieved another important technological first, this time in the context of opera music. Gioacchino Rossini's masterpiece, the comic opera "The Barber of Seville", has become the first opera in the world to be filmed in the 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) format. The production was staged last July at the Teatro Regio in Turin, among the world's most important opera houses and one of the largest and most historic in Italy. For the shoot, Sony's PMW-F55 cameras were used in live mode, positioned at eight filming points and all equipped with 4K Prime Lenses the same as the ones used by director Jacques Audiard for his most recent film "Dheepan", which won the Palme d'Or at the last Cannes Film Festival.

Short film Earth, Air, Fire, Water shows off stunning high frame rate capability of Sonys PMW-F55 camera Posted: 26/09/2013
Short film Earth, Air, Fire, Water shows off stunning high frame rate capability of Sonys PMW-F55 camera

Steve Lawes, the first person in Europe to use Sonys F55 when it launched, commented: Having put the F55 through its paces before, I was delighted to find that the firmware upgrade hasnt affected the cameras usability at all. The most pleasing thing to see was that the camera still shoots full sensor, so the image isnt cropped in any way and the shot we were getting didnt change at all when we switched the frame rate up. This is incredibly useful for filmmakers, as it means theres no need to change the lens or perspective, and you can continue shooting as normal.
