At IBC, Chrosziel showed an ingenious system to support a Sony F3 and SR-R1 Memory Recorder. It’s light, stylish, practical and comfortable.
The SR-R1 Memory Recorder lets you record Sony S-Log 10 and 12-bit RGB 4:4:4. It connects via cable directly to the F3. The SRMemory cards, about the size of an iPhone, come in 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacities. More information at www.sony.com/F3
