The PMW-F3 by Sony is complemented by the introduction of a wide short zoom, 11 - 16mm and a 14x Powerzoom, 18 - 252mm. Put this together with an SR-R1 4:4:4 recorder and you have a system designed for shooting at cinema quality.
14x High power zoom for high-end production
The SCL-Z18X140 is a new zoom lens for the PMW-F3 Super 35mm CineAlta compact camcorder. It is a 14x high-power zoom lens from 18mm-252mm at T3.8 (Wide). The SCL-Z18X140 has been specifically designed to fit to the PMW-F3 via the camcorder’s own FZ mount, expanding the operational flexibility of the PMW-F3 so it can be used for almost any application. The SCL-Z18X140 is the first zoom lens which you can operate with the zoom rocker of the PMW-F3.
Wide angle zoom lens for high-end production
The SCL-P11X15 is a new PL mount lens for the PMW-F3 Super 35mm CineAlta compact camcorder. It is a wide-angle zoom 1.5-times 11-16mm T3.0 lens aimed at high-end cinema, drama, documentary and commercials productions.
The SCL-P11X15 has been specifically designed to fit to the PMW-F3K via the camcorder’s supplied PL Mount Adapter, which also means the lens is compatible with any other PL Mount camcorder from Sony and also camcorders from many other manufacturers.
