444 Multi Frame Rate Camera

Pricing available upon request

The F23 camera system is the pinnacle of Sony's 2/3" CineAlta™ line of 24P acquisition products for digital television and motion picture content creation. With cinematographers in mind, the F23 was designed to provide the highest picture quality with a wide color gamut and over 12 stops of exposure latitude.

The F23 also features cinema camera style controls, a robust B4 lens mount, and a ergonomic chassis design that accepts traditional film camera accessories. In addition, the SRW-1 HDCAM SR recorder can be directly docked on either the top or tail of the camera system, or tethered by dual link HD-SDI cabling for mounting flexibility. When the SRW-1 is equipped with the optional HKSR102 board, the F23 can record overcranking, undercranking, slow shutter, and interval recording.

The F23 also captures in full 1920 x 1080 progressive in either 4:4:4 RGB color, or 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr.

Highlights:

  • High precision, high temperature-stability B4 Lens Mount
  • Shutter angle can be varied from 3.9 to 360 degrees
  • Compact and flexible design, the camera can be mounted in con-fined spaces and operated from any side.
