Sony’s F65 CineAlta Digital Motion Picture Camera Won the Prestigious Scientific and Engineering Academy Award 2016 / 2017.

With a resolution of 20 megapixels, the Super 35mm 8K CMOS sensor inside the F65 delivers unprecedented 8K/4K/QFHD/2K/HD images with extremely fine texture and low aliasing. Even if you’re post producing for delivery in 2K/HD, this extraordinary sensor provides gorgeous super-sampled images beyond the reach of ordinary HD cameras.

With our flagship digital motion picture camera, the Sony F65, we’ve not only matched the quality of 35mm, but surpassed it!

This camera together with the accessories cost around £70,000 when new and it s had only 520 hours use!

It is in great condition and comes fully tested in perfect working order. Requires a PL Mount Lens (not included).

It has a mechanical shutter, as well as an electronic shutter.

Can a single Sony F65 be used to shoot in 16K?

The F65 is a top-end motion picture camera. It features a true step-change in sensor technology, using a 20 Mega pixel 8K CMOS sensor. The F65 runs up to 120Fps, creates HD/2K or genuine 4K resolution images and 8K too, with a huge colour gamut, outstanding dynamic range, and high sensitivity.


The dockable SR-R4 SRMemory unit records 16bit linear SRRAW directly on to an SRMemory card at up to 5 Gbps. This can be developed with industry-standard NLEs from companies such as Adobe, Avid, Apple, Film light, Quantel, Sony and many others. For maximum operational flexibility, the SR-R4 can also support SStP (same as HDCAM SR) recording which can be used natively on the same NLEs.


Super 35mm CMOS sensor with 20 Mega pixels


The Sony F65 features superb image quality in HD/2K, True 4K and 8K (with its 4.01 firmware upgrade). There is a choice of format composition as required, including 1.85:1, 1.78:1, 1.66:1, 1.33:1, 2.35 spherical, 1.3x anamorphic, or 2x anamorphic cropped. The F65 has a 14-stop latitude, high sensitivity and ultra-low noise. It offers filmic colour reproduction with an unrivalled colour gamut.


Records on to SRMemory with dockable SR-R4 SRMASTER Portable Recorder


The SR-R4 is a 4K recording system specifically designed for Sony’s new top-of-the-line F65 cinematography camera. It takes full advantage of the ultra high-speed SRMemory platform to record super-rich RAW data from the F65 at speeds as fast as 5 Gbps.


SRMemory is unique as nothing can match its combination of capacity, sustained data throughput, security and portability. It opens up completely new ways for end-users to work. With huge transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps, SRMemory media also has massive capacity up to 1TB for long recording times.


Wide range of interfaces for on-set workflow


The F65 provides 16bit RAW output for recording onto SRMemory in the dockable SR-R4. Other interfaces include monitoring via HD-SDI and HD viewfinder with LUT, camera remote connector, LAN connecter, WiFi Camera Control and Cooke /i support.


Rotary shutter


The mechanical rotary shutter eliminates the rolling-shutter effect common to CMOS sensors.


Built-in ND Filters


Four Neutral Density Filters are supplied with the Rotary Shutter option.


Records at up to 120 FPS


The camera features higher frame rate recording up to 120P, which is especially useful on productions such as commercials that require a slow motion effect.




With the F65 analog film quality is really becoming digital. Using the F65 with the right lenses is giving me the opportunity to create pictures which are so clear and perfect as looking through your own eyes. if a project needs on the other hand a more analog look i can add some grain to it which makes the F65 a perfect tool for different requirements and applications.


Berti Kropac, Director of Photography, KROPAC MEDIA




Since we were shooting 16-bit 4K RAW, we had enormous latitude with dynamic range, color, and gamma. It was unbelievable, and I would always be shocked in certain scenarios at what the cameras could do.


Michael Grady

Cinematographer of the “Annie





A huge draw for Luc Besson was the color fidelity and rendition of skin tones. The colors were really there; we could pick out the blue of the sweater and the carnations seemed very natural.

Camera F65


What would make someone buy an F65 and not an F55?


The F65 is Sony’s flagship 4K camera and its 20 megapixel 8K sensor is designed for filmmakers looking to shoot at the absolute pinnacle of image quality.


The PMW-F55 is aimed at production companies, directors of photography and filmmakers looking to bring the power of 4K into their content from short films and music videos right up to high-end drama production. The F55, and indeed the F5, both use Sony’s XAVC open format, which bridges the gap between 4K raw and HD workflows and opens up the possibility of 4K for broadcst in the future. In short, the cameras complement each other, but address different needs and budgets.


Given some of the global blockbusters which have been filmed using the F65 since it started shipping in 2012, it’s fair to say that the camera has taken Hollywood by storm!


Can you list some recent films that have been made with the F65?


There are over 30 commercials and feature films currently in production which have shot on the F65, most notably Oblivion – the upcoming sci-fi movie shot by Joseph Kosinski, M. Knight Shyamalan’s After Earth and Amma Asante’s Belle shot by DoP Ben Smithard.


Is it easy to mix footage from the F55 and F65? Can you transfer set-up information between them?


The cameras match in terms of colour and dynamic range, so yes, it is quite easy to mix footage from the two. While you can’t transfer set-up information, the default settings for the two cameras match.


What is meant by saying that you can have an 8K output from an F65? Is this the raw output that needs Debayering? What is the actual resolution once Debayered?


Yes, this refers to the raw output of the F65, but a new RAW viewer is in the pipeline which will have at least a 6K output, even from existing RAW files.


What is the true dynamic range of raw output?


The true range of the raw output is at least 14 stops.


Sony quotes a 20 megapixel sensor for the F65 but 8K is 33 megapixels? Is the 20 megapixels the resolution after debayering?


The 20 megapixels quoted actually refer to the number of photosites on the sensor itself. Interpolation then allows us to increase the number of output pixels for 8K to 33 megapixels.


What is the advantage of a mechanical shutter in the F65 over the F55’s electronic global shutter? Is it mainly dynamic range?


The main advantage is that a mechanical shutter gives exactly the same motion blur as a film camera, giving the shots a cinematic quality. In addition, it also ensures the retention of full sensitivity of the sensor.


Sony makes its own sensors. What are the advantages that this gives Sony, compared to the companies that don’t make their own?


Fundamentally, it’s a matter of quality control – we control the whole camera and subsequently the resulting picture quality and consistency of images between cameras. Close liaison between the chip design and camera design team means we can achieve an optimised picture quality, so the quality of the sensor matches the quality of processing.
