NEW for NAB 2018…SONY FS5 v2

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment

The FS5 II offers several new features and refinements over the original FS5. First among these is a re-tuned color science leaning heavily upon the color science incorporated in the flagship Venice camera.

Sony claims this will result in a more fresh and vivid look with softer tones and more accurate skin tone reproduction.

In addition it will support 4 second bursts of 4K/UHD video at 120fps or continuous 240fps in 2K RAW. These framerates and formats both require output to a compatible external recorder.

Internal SD card recording will support HD 10bit 4:2:2 at 120fps continuous or 8 seconds of 240fps.
