Sony HDW-F900/3 Features:

  • Colorimetry: The HDW-F900 produces picture with astonishing color reproduction accuracy. The Multi Matrix function also offers unique possibilities for creative intervention by allowing selective color enhancement of alteration. Multi Matrix allows a particular color to be selected and its hue changed over a range of approximately 20 degrees.
    Color Balance: Color Balance is widely accepted as one of the key settings for any shot. There are a number of ways of setting this when working with the HDW-F900.
    Paint Functions: Paint functions permit color levels to be adjusted on set according to the cinematographers creative needs. The picture can be changed electronically to make it warmer or colder. This feature can be used very creatively, particularly with scenes with mixed color lighting.
    Contrast Range: The HDW-F900 can handle a very impressive contrast range. For the most challenging of light settings and associated scene conditions, a number of useful operational features are available that allow image optimization in real-time to help capture the desired mood of a shot.
    Soft Focus: The Soft Focus adjustment is particularly convenient for those who find conventional digital images to be too sharp and allow cinematic or film-like images to be created.
    Adaptive Detail Control: Allows the image detail enhancement in the highlight area to look more natural
    Skin Tone Detail: This control the detail level of objects with specific color tonality allowing for a separate image enhancement (or de-enhancement) to occur in those color areas while not affecting the rest of the scene content.
