The Scene at AbelCine Rental – Outfitting the F3
Tuesday, 13 December 2011
The Sony PMW-F3 is a hugely popular choice among our clients. Key features include a Super-35 sensor with PL mount, high sensitivity and low noise in an affordable, professional package. AbelCine Rental has a variety of accessory options to adapt the F3 to suit your needs, including a few unique solutions we’ve developed ourselves.
Sony F3 Production Kit
All of our F3 kits include the Element Technica Riser and Shoulder Pad with rear accessory mount, as well as the Berkey Top Mount Accessory Plate, both of which integrate seamlessly with the camera.
AbelCine manufactures the ProVFM adapter to mount a professional Color or B&W HD viewfinder on the camera. We also offer numerous adjustable handgrip options including the new Shape Quick Handles, making for a comfortable and functional handheld camera system.
A Fully Outfitted System
AbelCine can build an F3 kit for any type of production from studio-style productions to run-and-gun.
– Large 35mm zooms, Angenieux Optimo 24-290
– On-board recorders
– Battery systems
– Wireless video
– Paintboxes, etc.
Many Lens Options
The F3 features a Super-35 sized sensor with a PL mount adapter included. AbelCine offers eight different sets of prime lenses and twelve different lengths of zooms. We also have our HDx35 B4/PL Optical Adapter, which allows 2/3″ HD zoom lenses to mount to the camera.
Capture In Any Format
The PMW-F3 offers built-in XDCAM EX recording to SxS cards. For those who wish to capture in other formats, AbelCine offers several camera-mounted recorders such as the Ki Pro Mini, the nanoFlash, Cinedeck, and soon the PIX 240 and Gemini 4:4:4. From XDCAM to ProRes to DNxHD to Uncompressed, we can outfit your F3 with the recording option you need.
