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 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.
