    The compact, flexible PMW-F5 makes serious cinematography in HD, 2K, QFHD or 4K accessible on all budgets. Modular, easy to use and highly sensitive, it's effortlessly adaptable to suit different production agendas, from documentaries to music promos and ENG. It can even be upgraded to the PMW-F55 to match your widening creative horizons.

    Cinematographers tell their stories with light and shadow - and the ability to render tones from deepest shadows to brightest highlights is a crucial test of any digital camera.

    The F5 excels with an impressive 14 stops of exposure latitude, bringing audiences more emotion, depth and detail in every frame.

    DPs notice how the F5 holds remarkable detail in the highlights, together with extremely low noise in blacks and lowlights. The result? Graceful, ultra-natural contrast rendering in any scene.

    From stunts and explosions to a single raindrop - high-speed shooting at up to 240 frames per second with the F5 gives directors and DPs a powerful storytelling tool.

    The camera also supports Slow & Quick (S&Q) motion for overcranking and undercranking, letting you alter the narrative by speeding up or slowing down the action in 1 fps increments.

    You'll enjoy full quality at any frame rate, with no sacrifice in bit depth and no `windowing' of the sensor. So there's no crop factor and no loss in angle of view.

    Surprisingly small, light and modular, the F5 lets you build up the right configuration for each project - or each shot.

    Add the AXS-R7 Portable Memory Recorder and capture 2K RAW at up to 240 fps for silk-smooth 10x super slow motion. Detach the recorder with an extension cable to shoot in tight spaces with rigs and cranes. Or go with internal recording whenever size and weight are top priorities.

    The optional CBK-55BK build-up kit transforms the F5 into a familiar shoulder-mounted camcorder for news and field-based production. You can even mount B4 lenses via an optional adapter to switch between broadcast- and cine-style shooting.
