The large sensor line-up now spans from the FS100 and FS700 and F3, to the new F5 and F55 to the flagship F65, and gives content creators incredible flexibility and creative options for acquisition in HD, 2K, 4K and beyond. The total line-up, with our new accessories, further underscores Sony’s commitment to supporting every aspect of the highest-quality workflows.”
