Description

Designed for single-operator image capture yet offering multiple pro video functions, the FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera is Sony's most compact addition to its Cinema Line. This camera melds the high-end video capture of the FX6 with the petite form of the a7S III familiar to so many mirrorless enthusiasts. Well positioned for use as a B-camera on FX6, FX9, or even VENICE productions, the FX3 also serves as a comfortable option for still photographers branching out into video capture.
 
The full-frame Sony FX3 employs a 12.1MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and a BIONZ XR processor to capture up to UHD 4K video with the shallow depth of field that is signature to the full-frame format. An expanded ISO range of 80 to 409,600, over 15 stops of dynamic range, and limited rolling shutter effects further complement the FX3's sensitive, nuanced image capture. Its lightweight, compact form is designed with multiple accessory threads to facilitate cage-free use, and it comes with a detachable, dual XLR/TRS adapter handle for pro audio capture. Operating features include an articulated, touchscreen LCD, multiple autofocus options, and 5-axis, in-camera image stabilization.

Most Compact Member of the Cinema Line Family

This compact addition to Sony's Cinema Line blends the full-frame, S-Cinetone capture of the FX6 with the UHD 4K capture, autofocus options, and body size of the a7S III camera.
