The PMW-F55 CMOS image sensor allows you to shoot clear 4K images without rolling shutter distortion or flash band phenomenon for perfect HD recording performance. The PMW-F5’s 4K image sensor allows you to record in MPEG-2 HD video format and the new 4K-compatible format, XAVC, by using an SxS memory card.
Nowadays it is quite convenient and easy to put movies on USB flash drive and play on Sony TV via USB port, but there is a catch, the file formats support for USB compatible Sony TVs are relatively narrower, and Sony F5/F55 XAVC is not on the support list. So if you wish to enjoy your XAVC movies on Sony TV through USB easily and smoothly, then you'd better change the format from XAVC to a format playable by Sony TV.
