The Sony CBK-RGB01 S-Log Gamma Option for PMW-F3 Camera is a software upgrade key for the PMW-F3 Super 35mm camcorder to enable features such as S-Log gamma mode, 3G-SDI output, dual-link RGB 4:4:4 video output, and user-defined and pre-loaded LUTs (look up tables).

Ideal for high-end digital cinema and commercial production, the CBK-RGB01's dual-link HD-SDI option opens up external recording of 10-bit RGB 23.98/25/29.97PsF uncompressed material – ideal for integration with high-quality production workflows such as HDCAM-SR.

RGB 4:4:4 Signal Output
An RGB 4:4:4 1080 23.98/25/29.97PsF signal is available over an HD-SDI dual-link or 3G-SDI output, allowing the use of an external recorder such as the SR-R1 Memory Recorder for high-quality output for VFX tasks such as chroma-key, compositing, and CGI
S-Log Gamma
S-Log mode is available with wide dynamic range (800%) for the RGB 4:4:4 10-bit signal
LUT (Look Up Table)
LUTs can be applied to the HD-SDI output and to SxS recording off-line. User-defined LUTs (created by Sony's CVP file editor) can be stored by using SxS card. LUTs can be used for off-line editing with SxS-recorded content. Transfer user-defined LUTs from one camera to another for easy setup
Built-in LUT for On-Set Video Monitoring
Retain maximum dynamic range from shadow details to highlights. This employs exactly the same S-Log workflow as used for high-end products such as the F-35 camera

            Comments about Sony CBK-RGB01 S-Log Gamma Option for PMW-F3 Camera:

            Issue: one has to have version 1.4 load on the camera before you can load the S-Log Gamma Option, so if you don't have a spare card around, you'll have to get one to update the program.

            Issue: When I set the camera to 1080P@29 my Aja capture card reads it as 1080P@59 on the SDI A channel and 1080ps29 on the SDI single channel. Don't know what is going on.

                Comments about Sony CBK-RGB01 S-Log Gamma Option for PMW-F3 Camera:

                I was an early adopter of the F3. Very good camera. But I just recently purchased the S-log card & the improvement is significant. Of course as with all equipment it is only useful if you know how to use it. You can create picture profiles that are very good without this upgrade, but if you need more dynamic range this upgrade will not disappoint. Glad it is included for free in the newer models now.
