Lemac orders first F65s bound for Aus

Lemac has become the first Australian rental house to commit to the new F65 camera, through Sony Australia, which will be due early 2012.

Lemac Managing Director Sue Greenshields said “Lemac have always been the first to provide the latest in production technology and we believe the Sony F65 represents a very exciting addition to our high-end camera fleet. We are very pleased to be among the first in the world to offer this ground-breaking camera, as well as provide solid backup and support for on-set and post production workflows. Lemac will be rolling out new training programs that will start with an F65 course for Lemac customers.”

“We are very pleased to see such a strong commitment from Lemac to the F65,” said Nick Buchner, Senior Product Manager, Professional Solutions Division, Sony Australia and New Zealand. “The F65 is a highly anticipated camera with unmatched performance and we are expecting it to develop a solid position in the local feature, commercial and TV drama production markets.”

The F65 CineAlta Digital Motion Picture camera was one of the most talked-about announcements at this year’s NAB Show in April and was launched locally at events in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide earlier this month. It features a newly developed 8K sensor, which delivers HD, 2K, and 4K resolution today - and will go beyond 4K in the future, as industry needs evolve.

Sony is scheduled to commence deliveries of the F65 from early 2012.
