Sony Product Specialist, Tom Crocker, talks about the Sony PMW-F5, PMW-F55, and the codecs supported by these cameras.

A new codec, XAVC, which can recorded at HD, 2K, or 4K is supported, along with XDCAM at 50mbps, and RAW - with the F55 to the latest SxS cards and with the F5 to an external recorder.

Also featured on both the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 is S-Log 2. This enables images to be recorded designed to give a wide dynamic range, without the overheads of RAW in terms of storage requirements.

**PMW-F55 codec support**

Multiple recording formats include MPEG-2 HD422, MPEG4 SStP*, XAVC 2K*/HD, XAVC QFHD*/4K and 16-bit RAW 2K/4K**. You can have simultaneous recording on internal high-speed SxS PRO+ memory cards and RAW 2K/4K recording on sleek AXSM™ memory cards using the optional bolt-on AXS-R5 recorder, designed specifically to attach seamlessly to the F55 and F5 cameras. There is also high speed shooting up to 240 fps RAW 2K and 60 fps in RAW 4K recording onto the AXS-R5.
