F3 Act II

S-Log, 4:4:4 output and more as standard equipment.

By The Sony Tech Guy | August 10, 2012

It looks like the F3, but it's the F3/RGB.

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. Read More

By Adam Wilt | May 08, 2012

I got this fisheye lens, y'see, and by gosh and by golly I'm a-gonna use it.
