    Sony Press conference is over.

    Sony showing Golf Masters in 3D on the big screen as people flock past to check out the F65.

    The Japanese Press release:
    http://www.sony.co.jp/SonyInfo/News/...045/index.html

    Some interesting points:

    16 Bit Raw; which means that this camera has a 16-bit ADC (analog-to-digital converters). Pretty impressive, being that 16-bit ADCs were usually reserved for cameras like the Hasselblad/Phase One. dSLRs usually top out at 14-bit ADC.

    Optional Rotary Disc Shutter; the camera is suppose to have no rolling shutter artifacts

    8k Sensor; The new F65 sensor is reported to have 20MP resolution and send 16-bit raw data at speed of 20Gbps. The optical array area is 24.7 x 13.1 mm, diagonal is 28 mm. . Rotated bayer which better utilizes sensor space. That CFA arrangement isn't new, as Sony has used the same arrangement in their ClearVid sensors. Sony is calling this CFA "Double Bayer" it seems.

    What is new is how pixels are processed. Its technology that Sony has demonstrated at the 2011 ISSCC a little over a month back. The sensor has completely new ADCs that aren't column parallel based on up-down counters that Sony usually uses. Basically they can construct RGB color information without interpolation because they can sample multiple adjacent photosites simultaneously compared to photosites just being in a column. This is likely done (based on the ISSCC conference) at the analog signal BEFORE it gets converted by the ADC into digital pixels (before it becomes RAW). Each pixel coming off the ADC will have full color information. This means that the 16-bit RAW file will be 4k rather than an unmanageable 8k (20 megapixels), this is crucial being that 16-bit RAW file will already be massive.


    "Double Bayer" CFA for Sensor.

    And even that is often just marketing as the data coming off the sensor isn't actually 16/14-bit. Sorta like the new "10-bit P-IPS" LCD panels that are actually just 8-bit H-IPS panels with 10-bit LUTs.

    I'm sure given the price point that the F65 will ACTUALLY be 16-bit. What I'm more curious about is whether it will actually be RAW or if what Sony actually means is "uncompressed."

    It should be RAW by definition that it'll be data coming directly off the ADC of the sensor. However, this camera's RAW will not be a traditional bayered image, as this camera doesn't require debayering.

    Each raw pixel coming off this sensor will be panchromatic (meaning that it contains red, green, blue data) and not the traditional RGGB data from a bayer pixel. The benefit of this is that real analog signal from an RGGB photosite array will form a panchromatic pixel, rather than converting each color signal in the CFA into a digital bayer image that then must be interpolated.

    The downside is that it doesn't have the advantage of the traditional bayer sensor of inflating the overall resolution. Which is why the raw resolution will be 4k, not 8k. However, given that 16-bit 4K is already 19Gbps worth of data, outright resolution would be irrelevant.

    More pics:

    Sony will sell the 8K sensor head separately from the F65, wrapped in carbon fiber no less. This F65 T-head can be rearranged for 3D applications.
