Sony camera highlights include updates for the F55 and F5, including a shoulder-mount dock, which enables users to quickly convert an F5 or F55 into a run-and-gun ENG/documentary camcorder, and then easily return it to a traditional-style Super 35 camera. They also are updated with a new option board (CBK-55PD) to enable these cameras to record in Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD and a 4K upgrade license for the F5.

The PXW-X180 camcorder’s Version 2.0 firmware update enables wireless streaming so shooters can stream con- tent live from the field through a wireless network such as 3G, 4G, LTE and Wi-Fi. A laptop or a Teradek can function as the receiver necessary for the streaming function, and using the Content Browser Mobile app, a smartphone or tablet can be used as a camera remote control to operate start/stop, zoom, focus and iris and also review clips.
