  • Stereo MIC, Windscreen
  • Body Only, Lens NOT Included
  • RGB 4:4:4 and S-LOG output features pre-installed
  • Identical recording format and media to the existing PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3
  • Small, compact body with a very modest footprint, weighing just 2.4 kg (5 lb 4 oz)
  • About three hours' recording can be achieved with only one BP-U60 battery
  • HD-SDI Dual-link output connector
  • Scalable external recording solution
  • 3D-LINK option
  • Affordable and "ready-to-use" solution
  • Ideal for entry-level users
  • Features future expandability, including RGB 4:4:4 baseband output with S-LOG gamma for external recording which means it can be used in an HDCAM-SR workflow
  • It also offers a 3D-LINK option (CBK-3DL01 Sold Separately), which allows two camcorders to be controlled simultaneously for 3D stereoscopic shooting
  • Exmor Super 35 CMOS Sensor:
  • The PMW-F3 is equipped with a Exmor Super 35 CMOS image sensor which offers creative shallow depth of field, similar to that of a film camera
  • This sensor has an extremely high sensitivity of F11 (ISO800) with a very low noise level (an S/N ratio of 63 dB)
  • This is a significant advantage especially when shooting in low-light conditions or at night using only ambient light
  • RGB & S-LOG Output (CBK-RGB01):
  • The PMW-F3K/RGB now includes a scalable external recording solution
  • The RGB 4:4:4 and S-LOG output features are now included pre-installed
  • RGB 4:4:4 baseband signal output is available for external recording devices such as HDCAM-SR recorders (i.e. Sony SR-R1)
  • A LUT (Look Up Table) function is also provided for monitoring purposes when S-LOG output is activated
  • The PMWF3K/RGB also includes 3G-SDI output functionality
  • It enables users to select Dual-link HD-SDI or 3G-SDI depending on the connecting devices
  • PL Lens Mount:
  • The PMW-F3 employs a PL lens mount that is standard for film cameras, allowing use of a virtually unlimited number of prime and zoom lenses for 35-mm film cameras
  • This greatly broadens the choice of lenses for a wider spectrum of creative expression
  • A PL lens mount adapter comes with the camera as standard
  • The PMW-F3 supports the Cooke/i Technology protocol, which enables the camcorder to communicate with the lens to obtain lens metadata such as focus and iris position
  • The ARRI LDS interface will be supported as well
  • This improves post-production workflow as lens metadata can be recorded onto an SxS card and brought into the post-production process
  • XDCAM EX Workflow:
  • The recording format and recording media are identical to the existing PMW-EX1R and PMW-EX3, and proven, high-speed, intuitive XDCAM EX workflow can be used with high reliability
  • This workflow offers seamless integration with leading nonlinear editing software
  • Small and Lightweight, With Low Power Consumption:
  • The PMW-F3 has a small, compact body with a very modest footprint, and weighs just 2.4 kg (5 lb 4 oz)
  • It offers mobility, flexibility, and cost efficiency
  • In addition, the camcorder's power consumption is only 24 W, and about three hours' recording can be achieved with only one BP-U60 battery
  • HD-SDI Dual-link Output:
  • The PMW-F3 has an HD-SDI Dual-link output connector which offers 4:2:2 1080 50/59.94p uncompressed signal output as standard
  • By using external recording devices such as HDCAM-SR recorders, users can achieve x 2.5 natural slow-motion playback in 1080/24p mode
  • 3D-LINK Option (CBK-3DL01):
  • 3D-LINK option is especially convenient for 3D stereoscopic shooting
  • Two PMW-F3 cameras can be controlled by one camera remote controller at the same time
  • The two cameras are connected with a special 10-pin cable that includes genlock, timecode in/out, and control line Simultaneous control of the Iris and Focus functions of two cameras is extremely useful
  • Painting capabilities for Digital Imaging Technicians:
  • With the use of either the RMB-150 or RMB-750 controller (sold separately) hooked up to the 8pin remote connector, digital imaging technicians can make various adjustments to the look of the footage captured by PMW-F3 camera based on the needs of the DP
  • Native 24P Recording with Slow & Quick Motion:
  • For a film look the PMW-F3 offers native 24P (SD or HD) recording and Slow & Quick Motion function also known as over and under-cranking
  • These features enable users to create unique 'looks' or special effects with slow- and fast motion images
