The PMW-F55 camera shoots beautiful images with Sony's 4K image sensor for HD, 2K and 4K recording. An upgrade from the F5, it looks identical to its brother apart from the silver FZ mount. Unlike the F5, the F55 benefits from an electronic global-shutter to eliminate rolling-shutter distortion at high speed, and has the same colour-gamut sensor as its big brother, the cinematic Sony F65. It can record up to 240fps with an external recorder, or 180fps internally, whereas the F5 tops out at 120fps. 

The F55 shoots in multiple recording-formats including Sony's brand new future-proof XAVC, and has been designed to be lightweight and modular, producing incredible imagery at an affordable budget. Recording to dual slot SxS cards and offering an S-Log 2 option for extended dynamic range, the addition of the 16-bit AXS-R5 recorder allows for linear RAW recording for maximum post-production flexibility.

Firmware 5.0 includes:

  • DNR (Noise suppression) in Cine-EI mode
  • Memory A/B White Balance in Custom mode
  • Assignable Colour Bars On/Off
  • Assignable VF Magnification On/Off
  • Changing FPS (STEP) with Menu knob (push for 2 seconds)
  • Double Speed VF setting remains while switching HFR On to Off
  • Simultaneous recording on SStP 422 SQ at 59.94i (SStP and MPEG 50).
