Zacuto's First Look at the Sony F3 Camera

Focused on the expanding indie filmmaker market, Sony has announced the release of its new super 35mm digital production camera, the PMW-F3. Sony is calling their new PWM-F3 a camera for “professional shooters, resulting in high-performance digital capabilities at an ‘indie’ price.” Sounds perfect for Zacuto – and it is!



The Sony F3 has high sensitivity and shallow depth of field. It comes with a PL mount adaptor giving users more flexibility in lens selection. These qualities make the camera ideal for use in many digital production applications, ranging from feature film work to indie budget documentaries and corporate videos. Zacuto has the ideal professional accessories to outfit your new Sony F3. Our Universal Baseplate becomes the center of your kit which can be customized to fit any shooting style and need.
