Multiple recording formats include MPEG-2 HD422, MPEG4 SStP, XAVC 2K/HD and 16-bit RAW 2K/4K. Simultaneous recording is supported, to internal high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards in RAW 2K/4K to AXSM memory cards using the optional bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder. There is also high speed shooting up to120 fps XAVC 2K/HD* internally and 120 fps RAW 2K onto the AXS-R5.
The F5 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, you can attach a variety of viewfinders, including the DVF-EL100 which features an OLED screen, 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. An optional shoulder rig provides for hand-held and shoulder-mounted shooting.
