Sony's upcoming Full Frame CineAlta camera teased in press release

Sony has apparently released their "development plans" for their 35mm 36x24mm CineAlta camera . The camera , which would depart from the traditional Cinema standard of Super 35 (APS-H) sensor size is expected to give a better depth of field and more room for crop in post . Although Sony has video centric cameras with 35mm sensors - A7S series . This is the first time that their cinema lineup is set to receive this treatment .

So what's in it then ? Well the Statement says that the custom Cinema FF sensor will have the following Aspect ratio-agnostic – including Full Frame, Super35 4K 4-perf 4:3 Anamorphic and 4K spherical 3-perf 17:9 . This is good news as the adaptability would greatly enhance Sony's position even further . The statement also said that their current workflow will remain in Sony’s 16bit RAW/X-OCN and XAVC for RAW video and it supports Cinealta accessories such as the DVF-EL200 Full HD OLED Viewfinder, AXS-R7 recorder, AXS-CR1 and AR1 card reader, AXS and SxS memory cards (Of which some are to be released)

So when will Sony Announce this beast of a Cinema camera? According to our previous leak it would be somewhere in the first or second quarter of 2018 (The Cinealta press article did not mention any launch date though).
