CineAlta cameras are a series of professional digital movie cameras produced by Sony that replicate many of the same features of 35mm film motion picture cameras.
CineAlta is a brand name used by Sony to describe various products involved in content creation, production and exhibition process within digital cinema workflow. Now Sony's products branded as CineAlta include camera, camcorder, recorder, cinema server, and projector. "CineAlta" is a portmanteau of Cine, from cinematography, and Alta, an Italian word for "high".
The Sony F65 CineAlta Digital Motion Picture Camera provides high resolution with excellent exposure latitude, 14 stops of dynamic range and a wide color gamut. Its file-based SR Codec recording enables fast, efficient episodic TV production workflow, while 16-bit linear RAW supports the most demanding feature films.
The F65 uses a 20 million photosite Super 35 format sensor to capture high-resolution images with 14 stops of dynamic range. It records in 4K RAW from 1-60 fps and in 2K RAW up to 120 fps. The F65 can also output 1080p in Sony's robust SR recording codec. A spinning mechanical shutter eliminates rolling shutter artifacts inherent with most CMOS sensors.
he Sony PMW-F5 CineAlta camera shoots spectacular images with its 8.9 megapixels (effective) Sony 4K image sensor.

Irresistible options include the amazing precision of 16-bit linear RAW 2K/4K recording and high speed shooting at up to 120 fps without cropping.

VENICE is the world's first camera of its class with a servo-controlled 8-step mechanical ND filter mechanism built into the camera chassis. It offers a massive ND of 0.3 (1/2 = 1 stop) to ND2.4 (1/256 = 8 stops) range that reduces time lost on set changing external filters.
