Sony have finally released specs for their new budget Super 35 sensor digital cinema camera. The native recording they have chosen is not quite what I’d hoped for, standard XDCAM EX, but it does have 10bit 4:2:2 HD-SDI, as well as an upgrade option for 10bit 4:4:4 RGB 3G HD-SDI. This means S-Log recording is possible.
It also has a proper PL mount systems, with ARRI and Cooke lens data connectors, as well as all the usual I/O options used in professional production.
The cost is still vague, but 14000EU has been mentioned, which does seem a bit pricey for the base model with no lens or options.
