I had a chance to play with a Sony PMW-F3 prototype last night. It’s a very neat little package. The sensor is uses a standard Bayer pattern, not the new Q67, and is impressively clean and noise free. With a 50mm Super Speed at T1.3, and set to 18db gain, the images amazingly noise free and bright, and at 0db it pretty much matched my eye in quite a dark room with one key light.
This unit is on my gear list for next year.
