question

Can I mount a Canon HDGC KH 19x6.7KAS SY14 19x lens on this camera? If so what mounting adapter would I need?
Asked by: Brach P.
We are having a hard time locating the exact model of lens you listed, however lenses from Canon with similar nomenclature are 1/2 B4. You would need at least a 2/3 B4 with an adapter on this camera, it may not be possible with the lens you have I'm afraid. Feel free to email us directly at [email protected] for additional assistance.

question

Does this camera record to SD card or just the SxS card only?
Asked by: John
The F5 and F55 are high performance cameras that create a tremendous amount of data. This requires a high performance card in order to keep up with the tsunami of information coming at it. Unfortunately, SD cards cannot handle that kind of data and you must use an SxS card to record video. What the SD card slot is used for is the loading of scene files into the camera. These scene files contain looks that you can then use to shoot your scene in a particular way. A another advantage is that you can switch back and forth during production and know that the different looks will always be consistent.

question

I'm a bit confused by the description. Does the F5 record 4k raw internally or not? One description says it does, another description and the specs say it does not.
Asked by: Ross
This package includes the firmware upgrade that activates internal 4K/QFHD Recording and Playback using the XAVC 4K/QFHD format. That is not a RAW format I'm afraid. For RAW recording you would have to add the Sony AXS-R5 Recorder as well.
