  1. #1 Sony F35 CineAlta Camera with rare Wet Dock, Codex Recorder, EVF, many custom extras 
    Hello Everyone,

    The time has come for me to part with my treasured Sony Cinealta F35 camera. This is a legendary camera used in many visually stunning feature films like Tron Legacy, Transformers Dark of the Moon, Real Steel, and one of my personal favorites, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia. To this day the Sony F35 produces one of the most filmic images of any camera thanks to its 4.5K (12.4 megapixel) CCD sensor, global shutter, film-like highlight rolloff and vast color spectrum.

    I have spent a long time finding the right camera and all the components, some extremely rare, that make up this complete, top of the line, F35 cinematography kit. Some of the rare components are the BandPro "wet dock" (interface plate), made for the Real Steel film production, that replaces the old and bulky IF box and outputs quad 1.5G HD-SDI, along with GPIO and power. Paired with the Codex Onboard Recorder M, this enables the highest quality output from the camera as well as triggering the recorder from the F35 REC button. Although you may find some Onboard Recorders on eBay, without the extremely rare Data Transfer Station to unload the footage, the recorder is basically useless. Codex Data Transfer Stations are nearly impossible to find these days and are very expensive. In this kit I am including everything you need to record, playback, and offload your footage. You just need to add a battery and a lens, and you are ready to go.

    Here is the list of items included in this sale:

    - Sony F35 Serial #11036 with 2765 hours
    - BandPro Codex CDX-P055 Sony F35 "wet dock"
    - Codex CDX-3010 Onboard M recorder
    - 3 x 512GB Codex Mags (SSD drives)
    - Codex CDX-5500 Data Transfer Station
    - ATTO ExpressSAS H6F0 PCI card (inside Sonnet enclosure)
    - Sonnet Echo Express SE 1 Thunderbolt 3 enclosure (used to connect the Codex Data Transfer Station to a modern Mac via Thunderbolt 3)
    - Alphatron EVF-035W-3G Electronic Viewfinder (SDI input from either the camera or Codex recorder. When connected to the Codex you can also review your footage with a LUT)
    - 2 Ravpower NP-F550 batteries and charger for the Alphatron
    - Element Technica EVF mount
    - ACSE German-made custom baseplate for F35 with power distribution and quick release shoulder pad
    - Custom-made AC adapter with 20 feet (6 meter) cord
    - Custom-made V-mount battery plate with 3 foot (1 meter) cord and belt clip
    - All cables needed to get everything working

    Here is the link to 30 high resolution photos to see the kit in detail:
    (Please note the lens and battery you see in some photos are not included in this kit. They are for demonstration purposes only.)

    Everything is in good to very good physical condition and 100% functional. The only issue I have encountered is that one of the two outputs from the Codex Recorder is not functioning, however since it has two identical outputs, this is not a problem - I keep the EVF connected to OUT 2. I feel I should mention this to be completely transparent as this is a very rare and unique piece of kit. In fact, I will be very happy to help you get up and running with it as I have learned much about using this equipment throughout the years.

    Price: $7200 + PayPal fee + shipping. I will also accept Venmo, in which case there would be no PayPal fee.

    I have been a member of REDUSER since 2007. I have posted many times, purchased and sold many items here, on and on eBay (eBay ID is Samana76). Everyone I have done business with has always been 100% satisfied. So, you can rest assured you are dealing with an honest and reliable person.

    I am located in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are local, you are welcome to come see and pick up the F35 in a COVID safe environment. I also have extensive experience in packing and shipping delicate items safely everywhere in the world, so domestic or international shipping is not a problem.

    The Codex M Recorder has been sold. I will close this thread and open new ones for the F35 Camera body and other components. I will be selling each component separately.

    If Admin wants to delete this thread, that is fine.
