Sony to launch PMW-F3 Super 35mm Full HD Compact Camcorder

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.

***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.
