At the Bench: Introduction to the Sony PMW-F55

Sony has just started shipping their new F5 and F55 cameras, so I thought the timing was perfect for an At the Bench video. The cameras are so packed full of features that I opted for two 15-minute videos to cover the camera system. The first video goes over the F55's form, function and IO capabilities, while the second covers its menu system, various recording modes and output options.

Sony is always working to add even more features to their cameras through firmware updates. Let us know what you think about the cameras, as well as the features you'd like to see added first, in the comments below.

If you're in the LA area, be sure to check out the cameras in person at our Introducing the F5 and F55 Event, February 28 at our Burbank office.
