As you can guess news is a bit thin on the ground at the moment but this picture tickled me when I saw it, a full frame grab from a Sony F65 posted by Alister Chapman over at XDCAM-USER.

The detail in the picture is truly stunning and all I can add is God help any actress with a bad skin condition when being filmed with this camera !

The F65 is a top-end motion picture camera. It features a true step-change in sensor technology, using a 20 Mega pixel 8K CMOS sensor. The F65 runs up to 120Fps, creates HD/2K or genuine 4K resolution images with a huge colour gamut, outstanding dynamic range, and high sensitivity.

The dockable SR-R4 SRMemory unit records 16bit linear SRRAW directly on to an SRMemory card at up to 5 Gbps. This can be developed with industry-standard NLEs from companies such as Adobe, Avid, Apple, Film light, Quantel, Sony and many others. For maximum operational flexibility, the SR-R4 can also support SStP (same as HDCAM SR) recording which can be used natively on the same NLEs.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “Alister Chapman gets to play with a Sony F65

  1. Its a great camera, but its big, its heavy and uses lots and lots of power.

    In the end its great to have more choices for what camera we shoot on.

    I can’t wait to see what Arri and the rest of the 2K camera companies are going to come out with now.
