New capabilities...Limitless potential

It's the power to change, and the freedom to choose; to always push for more. It’s about the same cameras you know so well - the F5 and F55 - with more options, new capabilities and limitless potential.

 

We are transforming these cameras without compromising performance.

 

This is about more than just metal rods, plates and pads, it is about the best options for today......and tomorrow.

 

We have heard your feedback, and we will deliver.

Ahhh, come on Peter.. That is not cool, tell us something solid even if it's just a little at a time. Panny let their cat out of the bag, now it's your turn!

Interesting! A casing to make the F5/55 look like a traditional ENG camera?

Re: New capabilities...Limitless potential

I would think that along with reaffirming the current capabilities, the announcement has to include growth in recording formats both internally and with the R5. Sony has already made it possible to put so many different lenses on the thing, no one can complain. If Sony does lay the foundation for a long product life cycle of the F, this only provides us with better support, firmware, parts, and third party goodies. In any case this can only be a good thing.

Re: New capabilities...Limitless potential

I'm going to state what's maybe obvious - it'll be a traditionally-shaped ENG shoulder cam with the guts/sensor of the F5/55.

Re: New capabilities...Limitless potential

I hope it's not a new F-camera in the style of the Amira.....

Re: New capabilities...Limitless potential

Oh boy, will the F5 finally get internal 4K XAVC? This would be aweseome.

Re: New capabilities...Limitless potential

It wont be new cameras. 

 

In Sony's first teaser post they wrote this.

 

"And we’re not about to rest on our laurels, with the same cameras will come surprising new capabilities"

 

Same cameras! Smiley Happy

 

If I had to guess, and I do,  I'm guessing 4K for F5,  something to make F55 users happy too like higher frame rates, Prores? Maybe new rear module for radio mics? Audio? Something modular?
