Overview

Overview

Image sensor with blazingly fast readout speed

The back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor boasts a blazingly fast data readout speed along with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. An advanced colour filter array boosts colour reproduction accuracy, while focal plane phase-detection AF enables solid autofocus stability and excellent precision, all of which contribute to outstanding image quality.

 

High performance image-processing engine  

The BIONZ XR™ image-processing engine is designed for high speed, minimising latency while providing impressive real-time processing capabilities. The engine performs real-time processing of AF, image recognition and image quality adjustments, while also handling data transfer, user interface and other camera operations. 

 

High sensitivity, wide dynamic range  

The full-frame sensor enables high sensitivity with low noise throughout the camera's range by optimising the sensor’s output. Capture clear motion even in low light conditions with an impressive ISO expanded range up to 409600. It has an extended dynamic range of 15+ stops, without blown highlights. Together, the camera's high sensitivity and wide dynamic range expand your flexibility in post-production. 

 

Acclaimed cinematic colour with S-Cinetone™

The inclusion of Sony’s acclaimed S-Cinetone look, inherited from the development of the FX9, allows cinematic colour to be achieved directly in-camera. S-Cinetone is optimised for natural skin tones and mid-range colours, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction even without post production grading. [1] Standard (Picture Profile OFF)  [2] S-Cinetone (Picture Profile 11)

 

All-Intra internal recording

In addition to Long-GOP inter-frame compression, internal intra-frame (All-Intra) recording is supported. XAVC S-I recording compresses each frame independently at a high bitrate, up to 600Mbps, so is ideal for capturing complex motion, and allowing maximum flexibility and playback performance during post-production.

4K High Frame Rate 120fps recording

You can record full-frame 4K (QFHD) at up to 120fps with autofocus thanks to the high-speed readout capabilities of the image sensor and the powerful BIONZ XR processor. Even at high frame rates, 4K (QFHD) images are captured using full-pixel readout without binning, for clear post-produced slow motion (up to 5x slower than real time). The high-precision AF even allows beautiful full-frame bokeh to be achieved during slow motion shooting.

 

16-bit RAW data output

Facilitating improved image quality and more flexible and efficient editing in post production, the FX3 supports 16-bit RAW data output to an external recorder via the HDMI Type-A terminal. RAW video output is from a full-frame image sensor with 4264 x 2408 [16:9] resolution, to suit 4K (QFHD) or DCI-4K workflows, with a choice of frame rates (60p/50p/30p/25p/24p). 

 

HEVC codec with high compression efficiency

XAVC HS format recording, using the MPEG-H HEVC/H.265 codec, roughly doubles the compression efficiency. Compared to a normal 4K XAVC S format, XAVC HS allows for detailed 10-bit video with 4:2:2 colour sampling at comparable or lower data rates, delivering even better image quality as well as manageable file sizes. 

 

S-Log2 and S-Log3 with 10-bit 4:2:2 support

S-Log2 and S-Log3 gamma curves are available, with S-Log3 giving better gradations from shadows to the mid-grey range (18% grey), enabling a dynamic range of up to 15+ stops. For camera matching with other S-Log3 capable Cinema Line cameras, three colour gamut settings (S-Gamut, S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3.Cine) are available, offering creative flexibility and efficiency during post production. 

 

Proxy recording for more efficient editing workflow  

Low bit-rate HD proxy files can be recorded simultaneously with higher bit-rate formats such as XAVC S-I 4K, and these smaller proxy files can then be used for editing and previewing prior to final production delivery. This reduces computer load and allows faster and more efficient workflows. Proxy files can be captured in either 10-bit XAVC HS (1920 x 1080) or 8-bit XAVC S (1280 x 720). 

 

Expand your vision with Creative Look

Looks emulate pro monitoring and post-production tools inside the camera. The Creative Look presets are available in-camera, and each of these can be used as is, or further customised using individual parameter settings such as hue, colour depth, brightness, contrast, and sharpness. Fine adjustment of preset looks can be made according to the user's preference, and you can also register your favourite settings as a custom look.

 

10-bit HLG picture profile

An HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 colour space, can be used for direct HDR (HLG) playback on compatible TVs. The result is true-to-life imagery close to what the naked eye can see, with detailed shadows and highlights, less blackout and less whiteout, all without the need for colour grading. In particular, 10-bit recordings reproduce a level of fine gradation and detail for extraordinary realism.  [1] High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (colour grading required) [2] Instant high-quality image (colour grading not required)

 

Flexible exposure mode

Flexible Exposure Mode allows the Auto and Manual modes for iris, shutter speed and ISO to be set independently. The lock function, activated by a short press on the respective custom buttons, locks the related controls to prevent changes if the dial or wheel is accidentally moved. The frequently used iris and ISO can be controlled by the easily accessible front and rear dials as well as by the dial on the top panel.

 

Fast Hybrid AF for dependable focus during movie shooting  

Fast Hybrid AF combines focal plane phase-detection AF with contrast-detection AF. This results in highly precise, smooth tracking of fast-moving subjects even over a wide range with a shallow depth of field. AF Transition Speed and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity parameters allow more flexible focus control, as demanded by professional users.

 

Fast, easy and reliable Real-time Tracking and Eye AF  

Focus control is fast and intuitive, to ensure you have full creative control of the FX3’s powerful AF technology. Real-time Tracking greatly assists during solo shooting by analysing the subject's colour, patterns, and depth. When shooting people, Real-time Eye AF makes movie-making much easier, especially with gimbal-mounted shots and wherever you need to rely on AF. 

Fast, easy touch focus control 

Touch focus control allows you to precisely specify the point of focus simply by touching the LCD monitor. It's fast, easy, and intuitive to perform rack focusing through touch operation—ensuring you have full creative control of the FX3's powerful AF technology. 

 

In-body optical image stabilisation for handheld shooting  

Relying on a new high-precision stabilisation unit, gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms, the camera's Optical SteadyShot™ Active Mode provides precise optical image compensation, for outstanding results for 4K video recording, even while walking. With this unprecedented level of stabilisation it's possible to shoot with the camera only, taking advantage of the compact size and mobility. [1] Track of camera shake [2] Standard [3] Active

For uninterrupted 4K 60p recording, the FX3 features an innovative heat dissipation structure, including a unique Sony Σ (sigma) shaped graphite-alloy heatsink. A complete internal redesign optimised airflow and placement of heatsinks. When required, a silent cooling fan provides ventilation for continuous recording at full resolution, with intake and exhaust air structurally isolated to maintain strong dust and moisture resistance.

 

REC lamps and highlighting during video recording  

There is one tally light on the front and one on the back, and an LED-illuminated REC button on top that works with the tally lights. In addition, by displaying a red frame on the monitor screen during video recording, even if the screen is difficult to see with a rig or gimbal attached, you can immediately confirm recording status. Light operation can be set on or off for specific applications.

 

Cage-free accessory mounting  

Five 1/4-20 UNC mounting screw holes allow stable attachment of accessories directly to the camera body, without the need for a cage. Three additional mounting holes are also available on the included XLR handle. The result is a system optimised for incredible mobility and hand-held shooting as well as quick setup for fast-moving productions.

 

Various zoom operations tailor your expression

The zoom lever placed at the top of the grip allows operation of power zoom lenses. Additionally, our innovative Clear Image Zoom provides for practical angle of view options even with minimal equipment. Zoom speeds can also be adjusted to suit everything from quick documentary re-framing to purposeful cinematic zooms.

 

Touch-driven menu with workflow-based navigation  

Responding to requests from pro photographers and videographers, the menu structure has been designed to make moviemakers’ work more efficient.
