Three modification kits are now available for the Sony PMW-F3 to provide more flexibility depending on the user's application. These kits make it possible for the F3 to be mounted onto 3d rigs and improve the usability when shooting in 2D. The modifications are as follows:
This kit is perfect for 2D shootings where size is important but the zoom rocker needs to be available. It will give you lots of screw holes for accepting mounting plates or camera accessories and can be used in conjunction with Sony's high powered zoom lens. Will also allow the camera to be mounted to most 3D rigs (except 3ality TS5 Rig).
Modification for small 3D rigs to reduce weight and allow easy handling in 3D rigs. Also good for Steadicam operation or when you need to get them close to each other. Can be used in conjunction with small size 3D rig like the 3ality TS35 Rig.
For medium sized 3D rig like the Element Technica Pulsar when you do not need SCL-Z18X140 control. Modification for 3D rigs to reduce weight and allow easy handling. Also good for Steadicam operation or to get them close to each other.
These modifications will be carried out by Sony Service, for pricing and more details please contact Prokit at enquiries@Prokit.co.uk
