Deck Hand now rents the Sony PMW-F3 Super 35 PL Mount Camera

By: Joe Mealey | November 15, 2011

The Sony F3 is equipped with a Super 35mm sensor, the same size as 35mm film. It is terrific in low light with an approximate ISO of 800 and takes PL mount lenses for use with 35mm cine lenses. It is a perfect match of size, weight and price with Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 lenses. When recording on SxS cards, It blows DSLR out of the water, and when recording with S-Log and an external recorder such as the Ki Pro Mini, the F3 easily competes with much higher priced digital cinema cameras. The camera allows simultaneous recording on an external recorder and on the SxS cards which make for an excellent back up. Because of it's high resolution and large sensor, an external high quality electronic viewfinder such as the Zacuto EVF is recommended with this camera for critical focus.
