The F65 CineAlta camera is the ultimate expression of the digital cinematographer’s art. Optimised for motion picture and TV production, the flagship F65 captures uncompromising images with truly breathtaking colour, depth and detail.
Go far beyond ordinary colour
Thanks to advanced dyes in the image colour filter array of the 20 megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, Sony’s S-Gamut reproduces reds and greens that are literally beyond the reach of other cameras. Then we preserve every last nuance of colour with phenomenal 16-bit linear RAW recording. This encodes over 65,000 discrete shades of red, plus 65,000 blues and 65,000 greens, for more than 275,000,000,000,000 possible colours. When your next project demands the ultimate in colour fidelity, the F65 exactly matches your vision.
Every instant’s clear at 120 frames per second
The F65 captures up to 60 fps at full resolution and up to 120 fps at 4K resolution. 5x super slow motion playback achieves jaw-dropping slow motion effects – from nail-biting sports and stunts to nature in delicious detail. Slow & Quick (S&Q) motion lets you to alter the narrative by speeding up or slowing down the action, choosing frame rates from 1 to 120 fps in 1 fps increments. In all modes, you’ll get mesmerising high-speed shots without any windowing, crop factor or change of effective focal length.
16-bit RAW, the ultimate archive
RAW recording captures the full potential of the image sensor. The RAW file retains maximum resolution. Sixteen-bit linear recording equates to 65,536 shades of tonal gradation per channel, preserving the maximum in grayscale accuracy and dynamic range. The RAW image file reflects a minimum of in-camera processing: and it doesn’t ‘bake in’ any colour matrix, detail, knee, white clip or saturation adjustments. RAW maintains all the potential of the latent image, allowing its beauty to be revealed in post production. What’s more RAW recording preserves the integrity of your precious camera masters for archive; keeping images as vivid as the moment they were captured.
Latitude for greater expression
With 14+ stops of exposure latitude, the F65 delivers an impressively ‘fat negative’. Colourists are astounded by the way the camera sees into the shadows, while still letting you dig out sparkling highlight detail. And now you can preserve that astonishing latitude in post. If you’re shooting HD, the S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine mode packs maximum dynamic range into your HD signal, retaining the utmost flexibility in post. And if you’re shooting RAW, the S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine LUT is an excellent starting point for colour correction. With the F65 you’ll spend less time ‘getting into the ballpark’, leaving more time for finely-tuned creative expression.
ACES is a free, open, device-independent color management and image interchange system that can be applied to almost any current or future workflow. It was developed by hundreds of the industry’s top scientists, engineers and end users, working together under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Sony has worked closely with the Academy to develop and test various implementations of ACES leading up to Version 1.0. As a member of the ACES Logo Program, Sony is committed to its cameras and related products and solutions supporting ACES-based workflows in the highest quality possible.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) takes viewers’ engagement to the next level with brighter highlights, deeper blacks and richer colours. You’re all ready to shoot in HDR with the F65 – opening up exciting new creative possibilities for audiences to enjoy, today and tomorrow.
I’d be really, really happy to shoot my next film on the F65 and probably will – in fact, definitely will.”
