SONY PMW F3 CineAlta PL Mount S/N 200328
Super 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor with PL lens mount CineAlta camera
Joining the F35 and SRW-9000PL in Sony’s lineup of CineAlta 24p digital cinema cameras, the PMW-F3L Super 35mm XDCAM EX Full-HD Compact camera with S-Log Gamma continues the democratization of high-end image capture. The camera’s Super 35mm-size CMOS sensor offers a variety of advantages over smaller sensors, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range. Unlike smaller, broadcast-style sensors or the larger “full-frame” sensor found in some DSLRs, the PMW-F3’s chip is on a par with Hollywood film cameras, in terms of field of view and depth of field. That means complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses and consistency of vision for cinematographers used to shooting on 35mm film.
