It’s now obvious to most of us that we are getting another large sensor camera from Sony, probably one that gives you all the best features of the F3 plus 50-100Mbps and a decent viewfinder. Don’t see it being 4K but Sony need to make ground up from Canon’s C500…who knows.

CVP seem to not only know but have official information from Sony…




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.

  1. My first though when I heard about a new Sony camera in the “F” series is that it would be 4K. But now I wonder if it will be full frame, coming off tech from the a99 and the NEX-VG900. I doubt “the new F” would be both 4K and full frame though. 4K is a pretty pro feature now and full frame limits pro lens options.

  2. The specs CVP mentioned (4K, 50 Mb/s 4:2:2 and high frame rate) are already officially confirmed by Sony, so yes, they are correct. Sensor size should be Super35.

  3. Most likely an PMW-F5 or F7 to compete with the C300 or C500? I hope it has a usable viewfinder in the right place!

  4. Yes agree.. why has the VF become some crap add on stuck on the back like a really cheap crappy consumer camera.. for people who this for a living its pretty important..
