Band Pro Taking Orders for Sony F65 Cameras


Sony's new F65 camera is expected to ship in January.
Band Pro Film & Digital is now accepting pre-orders for the new Sony F65 digital cinema camera. The Burbank-based distributor is offering an F65 Introductory Pack that includes a full compliment of accessories for $85,000.

Customers who place their orders before Dec. 31 will be among the first to get the new 4K camera when it starts shipping in January.

The Sony F65 Introductory Pack includes:

  • Sony F65 Camera Body with Mechanical Rotary Shutter
  • Sony HDVF-C35W Color Viewfinder
  • Sony SR-R4 Digital Recorder
  • 1x Sony 256MB SRMemory Card
  • Sony SR-PC4 Data Transfer Unit

The Sony F65 camera uses an 8K digital sensor to generate a 16-bit 4K image. It offers 14 stops of dynamic range and is capable of frame rates from 1-120 fps. The rotary shutter is a mechanical shutter upgrade for the camera that will eliminate the rolling shutter effect common in many other digital sensors. SRMemory conforms to the Academy’s ACES-IFF workflow and will be supported by a wide range of postproduction systems, including Adobe, AJA, Avid, Blackmagic Design, Colorfront, Quantel and Vegas.

The company will be taking pre-orders for the F65 Introductory Pack at its booth at IBC, (Hall 11, F.40).

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
