The Sony PMW-F3L Camcorder w/ Firmware v4.5

The PMW-F3L is the first compact camcorder to be a member of the legendary Sony CineAlta family. Key features include:

Firmware has been updated to v4.5.

Super35mm-size CMOS sensor. This sensor offers a variety of advantages over smaller sensors, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range. The PMW-F3’s chip is on a par with Hollywood film cameras, in terms of field of view and depth of field. That means complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses and consistency of vision for cinematographers used to shooting on 35mm film.

Low Power Consumption. Power consumption of 24 watts gives the camera up to 3 hours on a single battery and also minimizes heat generation.

SxS Media. The F3 records natively to SxS media, using the MPEG-2 long GOP codec in an 8-bit 4:2:0 color space. More demanding applications can utilize the camera’s dual-link HD-SDI ports to output to an external recorder in 10-bit 4:2:2.

Native 23.98p Recording. In combination with advanced creative features such as selectable gamma curves, this camcorder is ideal for cinema production. In 1440 × 1080/23.98p (SP) mode, images are handled as 23.98p and recorded as 59.94i signals through means of 3:2 pull-down.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
