A first look at footage from the Sony F55 4K camera. This is a very easy camera to just take out and about on the street as we've done here around our Bloomsbury neighbourhood.

This footage was shot 4K raw in the back recorder alongside S-Log2 HD XDCam on the SxS cards. This made it easy to simply import the HD clips into Final Cut for a quick assembly edit. We exported an XML and the in DaVinci Resolve added the 4K rushes to the media pool and imported the XML. Our cut was then seamlessly linked to the 4K footage.

We've processed this out untouched using the Slog-2 setting in Resolve from the RAW with no LUTS to give you a sense of the uncorrected footage and downscaled to HD. The RAW closely matched the HD XDCam in tone, but saved the highlights that were on point of clipping far better.

A note on the shooting: this was done as one-man-band with a Canon K35 50mm with no matte box. Hence the occasional blue haze/flare spot in the middle of shot.

The Gear Factory has all the best Digital Cinematography kit in central London, UK. This channel is where we will try out new gear, give some how-tos, and generally obsess with the big-screen image. Right now we are concentrating on Red Epic, Sony F55 for 4K UltraHD and beyond, plus the Blackmagic 2.5K and Pocket cameras for budget shooting. The Movi 10 is a great new addition for incredible moving shots.
