This week saw Sony announce two new cameras, the Pmw-F5 and Pmw-F55, as well as some details about 4K recording for the Nex-FS700. Unfortunately, they didn’t announce many pricing details, other than the $2,000 price for the interface unit for the Nex-FS700. The cameras are expected in January, and pricing information will probably come sometime in December, but we have been left to depend on whispers from those who say they have been told numbers, even though Sony continues to say that they haven’t told anyone the prices.

That said, it appears that the Pmw-F5 will be under $20,000 and the Pmw-F55 will be around $40,000. The consensus seems to be that these cameras could seriously challenge Red, and probably Canon as well.

In answer, two days later, Red dramatically reduced prices on their cameras:

5K Epic-x Brain- $19,000

5K Epic-x Monochrome Brain- $20,000

5K Epic-m Brain- $24,000

5K/4K Scarlet Brain- $7,950

4.5K Red »
