Sony IBC

– Alternatively follow us on twitter for the important bits!

– And we’re live, the compere takes to the stage to introduce us to IBC 2015.

– Katsunori Yamanouchi Vice President of Sony is on stage.

–  Adam Fry, Head of Media Solutions is now up top. talking about the wow factor of recent Sony 4K application. No meaty goods just yet.

– He’s talking about the current 4K broadcast  HDC-4300 and it’s involvement in the Champions League final this year.

– Now onto the Sony FS7, new camera imminent…

– PXW FS5 has been announced! we have a name

– 0.8kg weight.

– Electronic ND

– Snap off handle like FS7

– Screen looks very similar to FS7 but more twist action

– 240fps

– It’ll also have S-log 3 and raw via output.

– ohh another camera. A7S mark II

– 4K internal as expected. and talk about high ISO performance, probably picking up where the A7R II lets off.

– We’re moving ono a dynamic range monitor now. Look nice on a screen through a camera broadcasted and streamed on an iMac retina…

– Here’s what the FS5 looks like


– The weight of this could be great for gimbal work.

– We’re onto OB trucks in the room, let’s talk more about the cameras for now.

– As predicted the FS5 will sit right between the FS7 and FS700 for now.

– No long adjustable arm like the FS7, but probably a good thing as it leaves third party companies to specialise specifically in that piece, the Sony attempt for the FS7 was pretty poor.

– We’ll grab some more info on the A7S mark II from the floor, it was literally on stage for a minute whilst Sony struggled to take a picture of it (they forgot to turn it on :) )

– Some more pics:
