Sony's HDC-F5500 System Camera To Be Made Available In Europe

News Image
Sony has announced that the HDC-F5500 system camera, the latest entry in Sony's HDC camera series, which boasts a highly sensitive Super 35mm frame ideal for achieving a cinematic look, on a 4K CMOS global shutter image sensor, combined with perfect integration into live production systems, will be made available in Europe from Spring 2022.

The HDC-F5500, announced in the US in October 2021, builds on the success and benefits of the industry-standard HDC line-up and serves as a powerful tool for those in need of creative expression with a cinematic look, in a system camera form factor and workflow. Thanks to the global shutter effect to prevent rolling shutter distortion and flash band, this camera works perfectly in challenging light circumstances, for example music concerts with fast moving LED laser light. The global shutter technology with shallow depth of field image sensor is also perfect for live studio environments coupled with an LED wall virtual system.

A first for a systemized S35mm system, the HDC-F5500 features a motorized 8-step ND filter adopted from Sony's digital motion picture camera VENICE, which can be controlled locally or remotely, for increased operational flexibility. It also allows the precise selection of focus depth as well as controlled capture of fast-moving subjects, even in bright lighting conditions. Another highlight of the new system camera is its wide colour gamut. Support for BT.2020, S-Gamut3/S-Gamut3.cine and HLG enhance creativity and reality and match seamlessly with the colour science driving Sony's most in-demand cameras.

From a workflow perspective, the HDC-F5500 integrates with Sony's IP Live production system through the use of the HDCU-5500 series and is perfect for remote production thanks to its integration with the IP extension adaptor HDCE-TX50. Its simple integration with a wide range of accessories means it’s easy to use in existing workflows.

The HDC-F5500 also supports full compatibility with Sony remote control panels for live shading and painting work for video engineers. The HDC-F5500 is also compatible with Sony’s existing SR Live for HDR workflow with HLG and S-Log3, which is establishing itself as an efficient HDR live production workflow in the global market.
