Description

Slow / Quick Motion

The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record videos with slow or quick motion, such as 120 fps / 5x,* all in Full HD. The slow/quick motion function also lets you switch between 1/2x slow and 2x quick motion in a single video while recording.

Dolly Zoom

This technique zooms only the background, without changing the subject’s size. It’s often used to express feelings, such as confusion, distress, or surprise.

Cinelike Gamma

“CINELIKE D” and “CINELIKE V” give the video rich, cinema-like gradation.

V-Log L Upgrading

The DMW-SFU1 Upgrade Software Key (sold separately) enables log video recording (V-Log L) with exceptional flexibility as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in the post-production process. It boasts a log characteristic with 12 stops, and the same characteristic curve and LUT (Look Up Table) can be used in common.

Operation Type

The GUI is for exclusive video use. The operation type is selectable from Shutter Duration/ISO, Angle/ISO, or Shutter Duration/dB.

Time Code

An SMPTE-compliant Time Code in either Rec Run or Free Run count-up method makes it easy to synchronise multiple video footage or sound sources in the post-production workflow. Drop Frame or Non-Drop Frame is also selectable in the 59.94Hz or 23.98Hz setting.
