Details are sketchy at the moment but it’s clear that Sony will launch their new PL mount ****edit – this is actually F3 mount with a PL mount adaptor*** 35mm sensor camera today. Sony claims it “brings cinematic image quality to DoPs and filmmakers working within tight budgets”.
My sources say it has dual link-HDSDI output and the same 35Mbps card based recording as the Sony EX-1R. Sources also say it should be available by February. This could be wrong so please take it with a pinch of salt, hopefully we should know later today.
There’s a little more info here. http://www.sony.co.uk/biz/content/name/ssw-bc-35mm-2010
***Edit Preliminary info is now available from Sony here
The camera will have a 10bit 4:2:2 HD-SDI output which should be perfect for recording into a Aja KiPro or Nanoflash at high bitrates.
There will be three high quality Sony 35mm lenses supplied as standard – a 35mm, 50mm and 85mm T2.0, further F3 mount lenses will be made available later.
There will also be a PL mount adapter included with the camera.
