Sony F65

Sony Released more details yesterday on their new 4k camera.  The sensor is actually 8k, but the video it records is 4k derived from that sensor (20 megapixels in DSLR terms).  While it’s clearly a professional camera meant to work in place of 35mm film cameras, the price is pretty impressive.  This post at Cine Technica goes into more details.  Abel Cine is selling a package this fall that includes the F65RS (RS stands for rotary shutter – eliminates “jello” problems) with a color viewfinder, digital recorder 256GB SRMemory Card and data transfer unit for $85,000.  Quite a bit more than what a similar package for RED’s new Epic would cost, but quite a bit less than I would have guessed.
