Five reasons to choose the F55 CineAlta camera

1. Netflix and Amazon's choice for drama
Our F55 CineAlta camera is the popular choice with on-demand Internet video platforms like Netflix and Amazon who are standardizing to 4K HDR to future-proof their own in-house premium drama productions. It’s being picked on TV dramas like Marseille, Blacklist, Sense8, Mozart in the Jungle and many more — plus feature films like the 2015 Palme d’Or winner Dheepan and Cannes 2016’s opening feature Café Society from Woody Allen.

2. Stunning images up to 120 fps in 4K
You’ll enjoy thrilling cinematic images, thanks to the full-size Super 35mm CMOS sensor that renders every scene with extraordinary color, contrast and ultra-low noise — even in the most challenging low-light conditions. And now you can get stunning results at up to 120 fps in 4K with the new AXS-R7 portable recorder.

3. Great for HDR with support for X-OCN
With 16-bit recording and a generous 14 stops of latitude, the PMW-F55 is the perfect tool for receiving High Dynamic Range (HDR) material. Teamed with the AXS-R7, recording in the new X-OCN format with 16-bit scene linear tonal gradation retains the camera’s full dynamic range. And with support for the expanded Rec.2020 color space—and Sony’s acclaimed S-Gamut3 that’s even wider—shooting in 4K with the PMW-F55 extends the shelf-life and commercial appeal of your precious content.

4. Light and versatile
Weighing just 2.2 kg (without lens and accessories), the compact, easy to handle body of the PMW-F55 belies its immense versatility. Built up with a generous range of lenses, adaptors, and other add-ons, it’s ideal as a shoulder-mounted camera. Adding the optional CBK-55PD codec board gives you even more options for great-looking content, with support for Apple ProRes and DNxHD.

5. Always up to date
You’re future-proofed with regular firmware updates to keep you and your camera ahead of the game. Recent enhancements include support for S-Gamut3/Rec.2020 color spaces, plus a Quick Menu for instant access to regularly used functions. And now Version 8 firmware adds XAVC 4K/QFHD Class 480 recording at 23.98p, 24p, 25p and 29.97p on SxS cards, together with full support for the AXS-R7 recorder.
