Band Pro showcases the new Sony F35 at NAB

(PresseBox) (Dornach bei München, ) Band Pro Munich, the renowned distributor of professional HD video and camera equipment, exhibits at NAB 2008 in Las Vegas. Band Pro will be introducing the brand-new Film-Style Digital Cinematography Camera, the Sony F35. Additionally, the phenomenal ZEISS product line for Digital Cinematography, consisting of various lenses of the DigiPrime©Family, DigiZoomTM 6-24mm and DigiZoomTM 17-22mm, a set of DioptersTM (+1 and + 2) and a DigiMutarTM 1.4X will be showcased.

Each year, the global community of media professionals converges at the NAB Show; this year Band Pro will be in Hall SU1320. The company co-exhibits with it s US-American headquarter Band Pro Burbank, which plays an exceptional role in the worldwide film and TV industry ever since 1979.

"With the new F35, Sony brings together the advantages of digital cinematography with film-style operability. The F-35 is designed to extend Sony s CineAlta line up; it will not replace the F23; both will address distinct production environments and will comfortably co-exist together," states managing director Gerhard Baier of Band Pro Munich. The new F35, which complements the F23 by offering a new Super 35mm-sized CCD sensor and PL lens mount, has been designed for cinematographers who have a perennial passion for 35mm film lenses. The F35 s newly developed Super 35mm-sized CCD sensor provides breathtaking picture quality, an extensive range of depth-of-field-controls, extended dynamic range compared to the F23 and F23-equivalent wide color gamut. The PL lens mount of the F35 allows flexible use fo the vast majority of 35mm cinema lenses, which greatly expands creative possibilities for users. Like the F23, the F35 is also designed to record on to an HDCAM SR recorder, which can be docked directly on to the back or top of the camera, or connected remotely via cable. The entire Sony CineAlta range now represents a spectrum of solutions to meet every acquisition, production and professional display need.

"The NAB show has always served as incubator for excellence and has continually lead the everchanging broadcasting industry over the last eight decades.
