With a compact design for solo shooters, travel applications, & to serve as an ideal B cam, the Sony FX3 borrows from both the Cinema Line & Alpha series of cameras to create an optimized portable cinema camera. The FX3 features all of the imaging attributes you'd expect from this class but sports a newly designed body that's hand-holdable, with a streamlined & minimal profile, & has a "cage-free" design, indicating the ability to secure various accessories directly to the camera body.
Its 12.1MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor (10.2MP effective in video mode) pairs with a BIONZ XR processor to achieve UHD 4K video capture with internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling or 16-bit raw output. The sensor's BSI design heightens clarity & sensitivity, with an expandable ISO 80-409600 range & greater-than 15-stop dynamic range for working in mixed lighting conditions. Benefitting colour & tonal control, an S-Cinetone mode can be used for matching to VENICE, FX9, or FX6 sources & there is also S-Log3/2 gamut support & 10-bit HLG for simple HDR productions. The sensor & processor also work together to greatly reduce rolling shutter & the sensor's design incorporates a Fast Hybrid AF system for intelligent & quick focusing performance & subject tracking.
Beyond the physical design just being compact, it's also built to maximize efficiency & operability through the inclusion of an articulating 3.0" touchscreen LCD, a removable shoe-mounted top handle with dual XLR mic inputs, & 5-axis mechanical image stabilization for smoother handheld recording.
