Sony F3 Act II: S-Log, 4:4:4 output and more as standard equipment | Gear in Motion |

"Sony has refreshed the PMW-F3 Super 35mm camcorder, reconfiguring it as the PMW-F3/RGB. The last three letters signify that 10-bit 4:4:4 RGB output and 10-bit S-Log gamma—previously extra-cost options—are now standard equipment. In addition, we’ve introduced a free firmware upgrade—version 1.40, created an accessory LCD monitor hood, and launched two lenses: a PL mount zoom and an interesting FZ mount servo zoom.

The F3 attracted directors of photography through a combination of Super 35 imagery, practical workflow and accessible pricing. At the initial launch, Sony discussed a roadmap of firmware upgrades, effectively promising to make the camera even better over time. We’ve been delivering on that promise consistently.
