Sony 4K sensor for gorgeous, super-sampled HD, 2K and 4K
The PMW-F55 CineAlta camera shoots spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor. You get superb dynamic range, the widest colour gamut, and pristine image quality, whether you shoot in HD, 2K or 4K.

Multiple recording formats includes HD/2K/4K on SxS memory and 16-bit RAW 2K/4K on AXSM™ media

You can have simultaneous recording on internal high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards and RAW 2K/4K recording on sleek AXSM™ memory cards using the optional bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder, designed specifically to attach seamlessly to the F55 and F5 cameras. There is also high speed shooting up to 240 fps RAW 2K and 60 fps in RAW 4K recording onto the AXS-R5.

Lightweight modular design to maximise versatility in 2D and 3D

The F55 is exceptionally small, light and modular, letting you build up the right configuration for each job – or each shot. As well as the choice of formats and internal and external recording options, PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses, including second-generation Sony PL-mount lenses, and extra long-life Olivine – Lithium Iron Phosphate – batteries. The chassis is only slightly wider than a typical PL-mount prime lens, perfect for 3D rigs.

Super 35mm equivalent 4K single-chip CMOS sensor

The PMW-F55’s Sony 4K image sensor captures a true 4K 4096 x 2160 DCI-standard cinema image. Its 4K CMOS sensor features 11.6 megapixels (total) and 8.9 megapixels (effective).

16-bit RAW 2K/4K recording options with bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder (optional extra)

Capture RAW at your choice of resolutions: the camera’s native 4K or beautiful, derived 2K. RAW recording preserves the greatest latitude for colour 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 and Blue 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.

AXS-R5 records onto ASXM™ memory cards

The (optional extra) bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder records onto sleek, high-capacity AXSM™ memory cards, which are compatible with an affordable optional USB 3.0 reader, the AXS-CR1. Once on a PC, the RAW files can be screened using Sony’s free RAW Viewer software. AXSM memory provides a super fast, affordable format for sensational quality recordings.

Choice of HD/2K/4K internal recording formats

The F55 CineAlta camera allows you a choice of internal recording formats in addition to 16-bit RAW 2K/4K recording output onto the AXS-R5. The camera incorporates high-speed SxS PRO+ memory card recording that allows the choice of: 8-bit MPEG-2 HD422, 50Mbps; 10-bit XAVC 2K*/HD 100Mbps; SR Codec 10-bit MPEG4 SStP 220, 440 and 880Mbps*; and XAVC 4K/QFHD* 300Mbps. All formats can be recorded at a range of interlace and progressive frame rates (see camera specifications for precise details).
*Expected as a future upgrade.

High speed shooting up to 60 fps 4K and180 fps 2K internally


The F55 features high-data-rate on-board XAVC HDrecordings up to 60 fps, plus a free planned upgrade to XAVC 4K, QFHD and 2Kup to 60 fps and XAVC 2K/HD up to180 fps.

Next generation high-speed SxS PRO+ memory card

The F55 records internally onto SxS memory. High-speed shooting and the highest quality recording options require next-generation SxS recording media – Sony’s 64 GB* SxS PRO+ memory card.
* 1 GB equals one billion bytes, a portion of which is used for data management functions.

Simultaneous RAW and onboard camera SxS recording

Sony provides a coordinated “off-line, on-line” workflow with simultaneous recording to internal SxS cards and the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder. For seamless conforming in post, you get matching time code, start frame, stop frame, file names and other metadata. The camera supports the following RAW + Onboard combinations: RAW 4K/2K + XAVC 2K*/HD, RAW 4K/2K + MPEG-2 HD422 and RAW 2K + XAVC QFHD*/4K.
* Expected as a future upgrade.

Real world workflows
Sony understands a fundamental truth: working cameras require practical workflows. That’s why the F5 is part of a larger production platform that includes affordable media cards, affordable card readers, free RAW Viewer software and compatibility with popular NLEs and finishing tools.

Vast exposure latitude to 14 f-stops

The ability to render tones from deepest shadows to brightest highlights is a crucial test of any digital camera. The F55 excels, with an impressive 14 stops of exposure latitude, extraordinary low-light sensitivity and extremely low noise in the blacks.

True colour technology

Sony believes that your camera should not limit your colour palette. That is why the F55 incorporates the same advanced colour filter array technology as used in Sony’s flagship F65, which is equipped with the industry’s only 8K sensor. You get a colour gamut that’s not only wider than other digital cameras.It is even wider than motion picture print film.

Small lightweight design for added versatility in 3D

The small size of the F55 is particularly welcome in stereoscopic 3D shooting. The chassis is only slightly wider than a typical PL mount prime lens, perfect for both mirror rigs and side-by-side configurations.

Incredible flexibility with the choice of PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses


The F55 is designed to accommodate PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses. With the PL-mount adaptor, you can take advantage of acclaimed cine optics from Angénieux®, Canon®, Carl Zeiss®, Cooke®, FUJIFILM®, Leica® and more. Slip off the supplied PL-mount adaptor to reveal the native FZ mount with 18 mm flange focal distance. It’s perfect for accepting commercially available adaptors for still lenses, including Canon® EF, Canon FD, Nikon® DX, Nikon G, Leica® M and even 2/3-inch broadcast B4 lenses. There’s also Sony’s game-changing FZ-mount auto focus servo zoom: the SCL-Z18X140.

Intuitive one-touch interface


Carefully designed with significant input from cinematographers, the F55 provides an incredibly rich range of controls. And the interface is nicely intuitive. Instead of diving through menus, you get direct, one-touch access to key shooting parameters including frame rate, shutter speed, colour temperature, ISO sensitivity and gamma. Assignable buttons mean that favourite adjustments are always at your fingertips.

Real-time 4K output and other vital connections

The camera offers powerful connections, including real-time 4K output to a compatible monitor. It is made possible by four 3G-SDI outputs. There is also HDMI®, USB, DC in connection, a removable XLR audio module and a removable time code/genlock module. The XLR inputs accept balanced analogue signals, provide 48-Volt phantom power and will accept four channels of AES/EBU digital audio with an expected firmware upgrade.

Long-life Olivine battery and quick charger

The F55 takes advantage of Sony’s innovative BP-FL75 battery pack, which uses Olivine – Lithium Iron Phosphate – instead of conventional Lithium Ion cathodes. The result is a substantial increase in charge-discharge cycles, compared to previous Sony batteries. The Olivine battery works with Sony’s BC-L90 quick charger. The camera is also compatible with Sony’s BP-GL95A, GL65A, L80S and L60S batteries, which use the BC-L70 and L160 chargers.

Revolutionary electronic global shutter

The traditional CMOS image sensor uses a ‘rolling’ shutter that can result in images with unwanted distortions like motion skew and flash banding. That can be annoying, especially when shooting visual effects or 3D. Anything but typical, the F55 incorporates electronic global shutter. Rolling shutter distortions aren’t minimised, they’re completely eliminated
