Sony's pro 4K camcorder has Netflix-friendly 'Instant HDR'

  Sony's pro 4K camcorder has Netflix-friendly 'Instant HDR' HDR has become just as important as 4K for streaming and Blu-Ray users who care about seeing films and series the way the creators intended. The FS5-II canhandle 60 fps high-framerate 4K recording, shoot 4K 120 fps in four-second bursts, and output 240 fps 1080p for eight seconds. Internally, it can handle 8-bit 4K at 30fps, or HD at up to 120 fps. However, many production pros will probably attach an Atomos Ninja or other device and record RAW 4K using Apple's new ProRes RAW or regular ProRes recording formats. It also packs new color science that improves skin tones, a common complaint about the last model.

In the time between Sony ’s original DPT-S1 and now, the company has also picked up some competition in the form of the reMarkable, a similar giant E Ink tablet that was announced last year that also aims to replace paper with a giant E Ink display.

Now Sony’s announced a new version- the DPT-CP1, which is basically the exact same thing but in A5 size.

The 10.3-inch screen has a resolution of 1404 x 1872 at 224 dots per inch, and is capable of 16 levels of greyscale. The DPT-CP1 has 16GB of storage for PDF files, which can be shared with iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices through a companion app. It’s 5.9mm thick and weighs about half a pound, with Sony claiming it’ll last around a month on a single charge.

Like the larger model, the DPT-CP1 is likely to remain a Japan-only product, and it isn’t really aimed at mainstream consumers — Sony says the price will be “under” 70,000 yen, or about $650, which would make it roughly $100 cheaper than its bigger sibling. It’ll be available in early June.
