Introducing the smallest Cinema Line camera - optimized for solo movie shooting up to 120p1 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 and ISO2 up to 409,600 with S-Cinetone and a compact cage free design featuring ¼”-20 mounting points, a top handle with XLR/TRS inputs, uninterrupted recording thanks to a cooling fan for effective heat dissipation4 and in-body image stabilization with Active mode6 for steady handheld shooting. 

Exmor R CMOS Sensor

Optimized for cinematic expression

The FX3 features a 10.2MP11 Full-frame Backside-illuminated (BSI) Exmor R CMOS sensor that delivers sensitivity, speed and superior movie quality. The sensor features a color filter array that boosts color reproduction accuracy while delivering up to 15+ stops of dynamic range3 and drastically reduced noise for ultra-sharp and clean images with a fast readout speed that reduces rolling shutter. In addition, the Exmor R sensor features Sony’s acclaimed fast hybrid autofocus with 627 phase detection AF points and 89% coverage7. The high sensitivity also allows it to autofocus in light as low as EV-6.

BIONZ XR

High-performance fast processing

The FX3 features the same BIONZ XR system architecture as the FX6, with high processing performance from image capture through all signal processing stages. User interface, network, and file management processing is distributed so that fast, stress-free control response is maintained regardless of real-time processing load. The engine also makes it possible to deliver high sensitivity and natural gradations, realistic color reproduction, low noise, and other image quality improvements as well as faster, more precise AF plus the ability to process the large amounts of data required for 4K 120p1 10-bit 4:2:2 recording. It also features improved menu response and high-speed write to CFexpress Type A memory cards. 

 

 

S-Cinetone

S-Cinetone for that expressive cinematic look

In response to a growing need for more expressive depth, the FX3, along with FX9 and FX6 Cinema Line cameras, allows users to easily create a cinematic look without post-production using S-Cinetone picture profile. Inspired by the color science used in Sony’s flagship VENICE camera, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones, plus soft colors and gorgeous highlights that are essential to cinematic expression. S-Cinetone is the default for Picture Profile 11 (PP11) on the FX3.

 

 

Cage free design

Cage free design

An easily manageable compact body that doesn’t get in the way translates directly into increased workflow efficiency and shooting freedom for creators involved in video production. The FX3 is designed to eliminate the need for a camera cage, including six standard ¼”-20 UNC threaded mounting points to easily and securely attach compatible accessories such as external monitors, recorders, wireless microphones, or other add-ons. In addition, the supplied top handle with XLR interface securely attaches to the body via the Multi Interface Shoe without any special tools and provides three additional thread holes. Since no cage is required, the system size and weight is reduced making transporting easier and setup time quicker. The FX3 has everything a single operator needs for video production in a versatile, easy-to-use compact and lightweight package that can be expanded to meet growing needs. 

 

 

FX3 ventilation

Uninterrupted 4K 60p recording

Creators need more than just refined features and performance; they also need reliability and durability. Heat buildup from processing large volumes of data when recording high-bitrate (10-bit/16-bit), high-resolution 4K and high frame-rate (60p/120p1) movie can plague other systems, but not the FX3. It combines a fan for active cooling in addition to the unique camera-wide passive heat dissipation structure - with effective heat dissipation resulting in uninterrupted 4K 60p recording without thermal shutdown4. The newly developed fan provides high-efficiency cooling by drawing air into the camera via the bottom panel and exhausts via the side. Cooling modes include: Auto, Minimum (Quiet and slow speed), Off in Rec. (Max speed when not recording) and Always Off.

 

 

Active mode stabilization

Active Mode stabilization for handheld movie shooting

The FX3 features highly effective 5-axis in-body image stabilization with any lens attached. The powerful BIONZ XR image processing engine with advanced real-time processing utilizes gyro sensors, plus optimized image stabilization algorithms to combine the new high-precision 5-axis stabilization unit with electronic Active Mode6 stabilization for movie shooting in 4K and other formats. This makes handheld shooting as stable as you can get without having to use a gimbal. Using optically stabilized lenses further enhance stability as the camera uses both in-body and optical lens stabilization together as well. Additionally, the FX3 records image stabilization metadata that can be adjusted during post-production using Catalyst Browse/Prepare.
