The Sony F65 is now an Indie Film camera!

Published in Production

It's kind of surprising to see a top-end camera like the F65 being used in smaller independent films. But the reality is that it's not so expensive and difficult to operate that it's out of range of this type of production. And here's the proof

It's just an experiment or hack, but it is real. A computer game running (albeit very slowly) in glorious 8K
