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

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.

Sony announced at IBC 2013 a new set of HD live production solutions consisting of four new studio cameras, the HSC-300R/300RF and HSC-100R/100RF plus the MVS-3000A multi-format switcher, at IBC2013.

The new additions build on the strengths of Sonys existing HSC-300 and HXC-100 system cameras, incorporating the latest generation of 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCDs for high quality image capture with minimal noise. The HSC-300R/RF models are compatible with the HDLA series of large lens adapters and equipped with Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC) dual optical servo-controlled filter wheels. This makes them ideal for customers who produce live broadcasts operated via outside broadcast (OB) vans. The HSC-100R/RF models are compatible with a portable lens and perfect for studio use. To better meet operational requirements across different venues, the new system cameras are equipped for digital triax (HSC-300R and HSC-100R) or optical fibre (HSC-300RF and HSC-100RF) transmissions. The MVS-3000A switcher supports Digital Multi Effects (DME) as well as a wide choice of control panel configurations and broadcast performance features as standard.
