Sony FS5 4k in Adobe PP - Ingest Sony PXW-FS5 XAVC files to Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5

In this article, we will offer a simple way to edit Sony PXW-FS5 4k XAVC clips in Premiere CC/CS6/CS5.

The Sony FS5 is the world's first Super35mm camcorder* with a built-in electronic variable Neutral Density (ND) filter, further expanding the depth of field capability of its large format sensor. Unlike conventional optical ND filters, the electronic ND filter on the FS5 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. This makes the FS5 ideal for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments - there’s no need to change filters as lighting conditions change and variable control makes it easy to keep depth of field under control.

240fps Slow Motion

High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow-motion ballet and the FS5 delivers a stunning 240 frames per second (fps) in Full HD XAVC 10bit 4:2:2. If your project plays at the cinematic 24p, you get beautiful 10x Super Slow Motion. There's no sacrifice in bit depth and no "windowing" of the sensor. So there's no crop factor, no loss in angle of view.

Whereas, you will find it is a painful experience to import XAVC to Premiere Pro CC(before 8.2.0) or CS6, CS5, CS4. There are some issues always occurred:
