Acquired in 2016, this Sony F5 camera kit has been assembled to allow for "run and gun" news and current affairs work, as well as high-end cinematography. Coming with the CBK-55BK shoulder mount as standard, we now have native digital wireless audio inputs, as well as the controls and inputs you'd expect on your standard ENG or EFP cameras.
Combine that flexibility with the ability to shoot in Sony LOG formats with 14 stops of exposure latitude, and you've got a great run and gun documentary camera.
For lenses, we can currently attach any PL, EF, FZ and even B4 lenses with the use of adaptors included in this kit. Built-in recording modes span all the way from 720p 50fps at 50Mbps 4:2:2, to 16-bit raw 2k/4k in full CineEI mode. (With external recorder, the AXS-R7, not included here)
As standard, high-speed shooting is possible up to 180fps in NTSC, and 150fps in PAL. (Higher rates are possible with the AXS-R7 attachment)
Included also are two Sony 128Gb E class SxS Pro Memory Cards, engineered to utilise the fast transfer speeds necessary to shoot in high-speed modes, and internal 4K recording.
Included in the kit are the following:
