The F65 draws viewers deeper into your story, capturing images with unprecedented fidelity, colour and dynamic range that’s delivered all the way into post production. With the F65 you’ll see – and keep – a more accurate picture of reality that conventional cameras just can’t achieve.
It’s the secret of unparalleled emotion and story-telling power. With a resolution of 20 megapixels, the Super 35mm 8K CMOS sensor inside the F65 delivers unprecedented 8K/4K/QFHD/2K/HD images with extremely fine texture and low aliasing. Even if you’re post producing for delivery in 2K/HD, this extraordinary sensor provides gorgeous super-sampled images beyond the reach of ordinary HD cameras.
“…when Woody called me this year asking me to be the cinematographer of his new film… I convinced him to record the film in digital, so we can begin our journey together in the digital world. It’s now time for the Sony F65!”
Thanks to advanced dyes in the image colour filter array of the 20 megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, Sony’s S-Gamut reproduces reds and greens that are literally beyond the reach of other cameras. Then we preserve every last nuance of colour with phenomenal 16-bit linear RAW recording. This encodes over 65,000 discrete shades of red, plus 65,000 blues and 65,000 greens, for more than 275,000,000,000,000 possible colours. When your next project demands the ultimate in colour fidelity, the F65 exactly matches your vision.
RAW recording captures the full potential of the image sensor. The RAW file retains maximum resolution. Sixteen-bit linear recording equates to 65,536 shades of tonal gradation per channel, preserving the maximum in grayscale accuracy and dynamic range. The RAW image file reflects a minimum of in-camera processing and it doesn’t bake in any colour matrix, detail, knee, white clip or saturation adjustments. RAW maintains all the potential of the latent image, allowing its beauty to be revealed in post production. What’s more, RAW recording preserves the integrity of your precious camera masters for archive, keeping images as vivid as the moment they were captured.
ACES is a free, open, device-independent colour management and image interchange system that can be applied to almost any current or future workflow. It was developed by hundreds of the industry’s top scientists, engineers and end users, working together under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Sony has worked closely with the Academy to develop and test various implementations of ACES leading up to Version 1.0. As a member of the ACES Logo Program, Sony is committed to its cameras and related products and solutions supporting ACES-based workflows in the highest quality possible.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) takes viewers’ engagement to the next level with brighter highlights, deeper blacks and richer colours. You’re all ready to shoot in HDR with the F65 – opening up exciting new creative possibilities for audiences to enjoy, today and tomorrow.
“I’d be really, really happy to shoot my next film on the F65 and probably will – in fact, definitely will.”
