Overview

16-bit RAW 2K/4K recording options for PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 CineAlta cameras:

Record RAW at your choice of resolutions: the PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 captures native 4K or derived 2K.RAW recording preserves the greatest latitude for color correction and other post processes. Sony’s 16-bit recording captures more tonal values than the human eye can differentiate. Sony RAW retains 16 times as many red, green andblue gradations as 12-bit RAW and 64 times as many tones per channel as 10-bit recording. Sony 16-bit linear RAW is also the ideal point of entry into the 16-bit linear Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow.

Records onto ASXM memory cards:

The AXS-R5 recorder works with  high-capacity AXSM memory cards, which are compatible with an affordable optional USB 3.0 reader, the AXS-CR1.

The AXS-R5 allows you to record up to 240 fps 2K RAW with the F55 and up to 120 fps 2K RAW with the F5, with free planned upgrades, achieving the highest frame rates most productions will need, while retaining exceptional, 16-bit image quality.
