Sony's New F65 - 8K 20M-Pixel CMOS imager

It's called the F65.
Saw it projected today. Compared to HD, from forty feet away from a twenty foot screen, could you tell the difference?

Of course since the new Sony has an 8K sensor, it'll still be fine when the upgrades to theater screens comes and 70ft. heights are the new standard.

In any case, it's subsampled, so they've decided to be honest and output it at 4K. This is good.
Demos were projected from Sony SXRD (basically, LCOS) 4K projectors.

It has an 8K bayer pattern sensor (or is it actually Bayer? I'd have to check, actually).
It's their new pattern, Bayer rotated 45 degrees. They call it "Q67" -- or at least they did last year when they talked about it at VTP. Seems like a good idea, unless your movie is about chain link fences.... ;-)
We need to come up with a name for it, maybe diagonal Bayer? Of course, it's not really corner to corner.... Rotated Bayer?

Actually, given the pixel count, and if it is a Super35mm sensor, I wonder what'll happen DR wise...

I believe it's Super-35mm sized, hence any good old cine lens should work.
That's correct. The question was asked at their pre-NAB show at VTP. The use of "65" had some people worried that it would need bigger glass.
