Sony PMW-F5 Camera Kit

Put together in 2016, this kit is ready for all you can throw at it. Built to work straight from the case, configured with a genuine Sony CBK shoulder mount, it allows you to shoot cinema grade pictures without requiring an external audio recorder.

It also comes with an MTF B4 to Super 16 adaptor, allowing the use of powered servo HD ENG lenses. A Chrosziel matte box with French Flag is included, allowing two square filters to be inserted in front of the lens. 15mm rods come as standard, attached to the Sony shoulder mount, allowing the use of follow focus units if required. (Not provided)

The camera can shoot in standard news formats, starting at 1920x1080i 50fps at 50Mbps 4:2:2, all the way up to progressive 4k at 150fps in full CineEI mode. (Please let us know your requirements early to see if we can accommodate)

We also have an Optitek lens adaptor to utilize Canon EF lenses, should you require more of a cinema look. We have both 24-70mm 2.8L and 50mm 1.2L lenses that are compatible. Naturally, if you have access to PL lenses, they will work flawlessly with this camera with no adaptors. (Lens supports would be recommended)

Sony PMW-EX3 Camera Kit

The first used camera purchased back in early 2015, it's still going strong today. Re-configured as a run and gun ENG camera, but with some extras thrown in for some more punch.

A Protech St-7 shoulder mount has been added, allowing the use of V-Lock batteries to power the camera, increasing the amount of time you can keep shooting substantially.

Also included, is a powered EX3 to B4 lens mount, allowing the use of HD ENG lenses without having to run extra hirose power leads.

The EX3 can shoot at a maximum of 1920x1080 in interlaced or progressive, upto 35Mb/s, which is still more than acceptable in modern newsgathering standards.
