HOLLYWOOD — Sony Electronics recently announced plans for its next-generation CineAlta digital motion picture camera system. This addition to the CineAlta family is being developed through careful research and close collaboration with creative professionals including directors, cinematographers and digital imaging technicians.
Sony helped pioneer high-end digital motion picture production technology. The company’s HDW-F900 was one of the first 24p digital camera systems. Sony’s F35 features a Super 35mm image sensor and the company’s HDC-F950 and SRW-1 were among the first RGB recording systems.
The next generation CineAlta will feature a full frame 36x24mm sensor that’s been exclusively designed for this digital motion picture camera. The camera will be aspect ratio-agnostic, allowing for production in full frame, Super35 4K 4-perf 4:3 Anamorphic and 4K spherical 3-perf 17:9. The camera will maintain the workflow established with Sony’s 16-bit RAW/X-OCN and XAVC, and will be compatible with current and upcoming hardware accessories for CineAlta cameras, including the DVF-EL200 full HD OLED viewfinder, AXS-R7 recorder, AXS-CR1 and AR1 card reader, and AXS and SxS memory cards.
