Using a solid-state workflow based on the XDCAM EX platform, the PMW-F3 records onto the standard of the industry SxS cards, using the MPEG-2 long GOP codec in an 8-bit 4:2:0 color space. In addition, for more demanding applications, you can utilize the camera's dual-link HD-SDI ports to output to an external recorder in 10-bit 4:2:2 (1080 50p/59.94p). 

RGB 4:4:4/S-Log Option Now Available!

This new feature now allows the Sony PMW-F3 camera to output via the dual link connectors an outstanding 10 bit uncompressed RGB 4:4:4 image that can be captured by the Convergent Design Gemini 4:4:4 portable recorder.  In addition, the upgrade option also enables the S-Log gamma curve which gives your image an incredible amount of flexibility to adjust in post production. 

The key features of the new S-Log Gamma option upgrade are:

  • An RGB 4:4:4 1080 23.98/25/29.97PsF signal over an HD-SDI dual-link or 3G-SDI output (The use of an external recorder such as Convergent Design Gemini 4:4:4 is needed to record pristine images from the camera).
  • S-Log Gamma.  The S-Log mode is available with a wide dynamic range (800%) for the RGB 4:4:4 10-bit signal.  The S-Log creates a kind of digital negative that allows for the most amount of adjustment in post production.

Phantom Flex 2K (by Vision Research)

The Phantom Flex offers an unprecedented degree of flexibility in all areas of high-speed image capture, and goes beyond HD to support 4-megapixel imaging, when the highest resolution is required. Depending on the shooting mode and resolution, the Flex is capable of shooting from 5 fps to over 10,750 fps.
The Phantom Flex offers two user-selectable shooting modes, each adapted to a particular shooting environment. In Standard Mode, the Phantom Flex is just like any other Phantom digital high-speed camera. Shoot at resolutions up to 2560x1600 pixels at anywhere from 10 frames-per-second up to 1,455 frames-per-second (fps). Maximum speed increases as the resolution decreases – up to 2,570 fps at 1920x1080, 5,350 fps at 1280x720, and 10,750 fps at 640x480.
In Phantom HQ Mode, Vision Research's proprietary image enhancement technology results in electronic image stability unprecedented in digital high-speed cameras: stable blacks, low noise, higher dynamic range, and repeatable shots over the full range of supported resolutions, frame rates and temperatures without the need for pre-shot black references. Maximum frame rates in HQ mode are about half those in Standard mode, which means that in HQ Mode Flex captures images at speeds up to 1,275 fps at 1920x1080 or 2,640 fps at 1280x720.
The Phantom Flex supports multiple workflows: a raw digital workflow, a video workflow, or combination of both for maximum control and flexibility.
With a video workflow, the Flex offers a video signal on the dual-link HD-SDI ports independent of the camera resolution. Set the resolution to 2560x1440 (16:9), and the camera will automatically scale the oversampled image when rendering the video signal. This technique increases the dynamic range and decreases noise in the video signal.

Camera Features:

  • Up to 1455 fps at 2650x1600 in Standard Mode (725 fps in HQ) up to 2,570 fps at 1920x1080 in Standard Mode (1275 fps in HQ), up to 5350 fps at 1280x720 in Standard Mode (2640 fps in HQ)

Canon EOS 7D PL Mount--Hand Held Canon EOS 7D PL Mount--Studio
Canon EOS 7D-PL Mount

Our new specially modified Canon EOS 7D camera is now PL mounted which will accommodate nearly all PL mounted cine lenses that are the industry standard in 35mm film production.  The advantages to using these fine lenses from manufacturers such as Angenieux, Cooke and Zeiss are that they are robust, have the highest level of optical quality, their focus marks are easy to read, and you can still use all your film style accessories on them such as motors, follow focuses, and matte boxes.  Also, since the Canon 7D’s CMOS sensor size closely resembles that of 35mm motion picture film’s image area, you can expect, for example, that the angle of view and depth of field characteristics of a 24-290mm Angenieux zoom lens will look the same on this camera as on a film camera.
Another feature that makes this camera so attractive to filmmakers is that all its exposure settings can be controlled manually and it can record in more than just one frame rate mode.  In Full HD (1920 x 1080) you can record 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) and 25p, in HD (1280 x 720) you can record 60p (59.94) and 50p and in SD (640 x 480) 60p (59.94) and 50p.
Other features of the Canon 7D-PL include a 3” 920,000 dot LCD monitor, ISO sensitivity range of 100 – 6400 (expandable to 12800) and small, 2 lb. body offering the ultimate in portability.  In addition, its camera body chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium and is water and dust resistant which make this camera production proof and ready for rugged handling.
