Hands On: Sony F65 Camera Overview

We have had a number of different events over the last few months featuring Sony’s F65 camera. The F65 offers unparallelled 8k resolution and produces stunning 4k imagery. We’ve done a lot of testing with it, and found both the resolution and dynamic range to be off the charts. For all of you that were not able to attend our events, I put together this short video covering some of the big features of the camera; stay tuned for future videos on workflow and data management. The F65 has a special package price offer through Dec 26th, so make sure to speak with our sales team if you are interested.

*First* Red Scarlet-X Short Film

This short film was shot on a RED Scarlet-X in December 2011.

It started out as a test to put the Scarlet into a real life shooting situation and we ended up creating this short in 3 hours time.
