Disclaimer: I wrote the F65 RAW support in Baselight.

Unlike ARRIRAW, which uses a file per frame, Sony have chosen to put 
the F65 RAW data in a single-file MXF wrapper along with audio tracks.

The data is 4K RAW using an unusual sensor pattern: 4K of green pixels 
with alternate red and blue pixels in the interstices of the green grid.

The RAW data is captured at the same exposure regardless of camera 
settings, so you can adjust Exposure Index at will in post.

Conversion matrices are supplied to get the 16-bit linear data into 
Rec.709, P3 or S-Gamut primaries, with either a linear or S-Log tone
