You must complete all required fields.
  • 4K Super 35 Exmor CMOS Sensor
  • E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS Lens
  • 4096 x 2160 4K HDR
  • 120fps Performance at 60Hz mode
  • 3.5-inch Moveable LCD Screen
  • 4K/2K FS RAW output with 4K60p/50p recording using suitable external recorder:
  • The PXW-FS5M2 camcorder is capable to output 4K (4096x2160) 12-bit RAW at 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 59.94p, recording to the AXS-R5 external recorder attached with the HXR-IFR5 interface unit (sold separately). Third party recorders* such as the Atomos Shogun/Shogun Inferno and also Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q/7Q+ are also compatible with FS RAW output of the PXW-FS5M2. (*As of Apr/2018)
  • Simultaneous XAVC HD internal recording: While outputting 4K/2K RAW to the AXS-R5 or third party recorder, it is possible to simultaneously record XAVC HD on SD memory cards in the camcorder's internal dual media slots. One application of this could be that the RAW recording is used for production and XAVC HD for on-set review.
  • 4K 120fps (4sec burst) and continuous 2K 240 fps HFR recording using FS RAW and suitable recorder:
  • 4K cached RAW output: Approximately 4 seconds of cached 4K RAW can be output at 100 or 120 fps as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p or 59.94p. When recorded in 23.98p, it will allow a stunning 5 times slow motion in 4K resolution.
  • Continuous high speed 2K RAW output is also available. You can output continuous 2K RAW at 100, 120, 200 or 240 fps as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p or 59.94p.
  • Full HD continuous 120 fps and 240 fps (8sec burst) internal recording:
  • The PXW-FS5M2 delivers continuous 1-120 frames per second (fps) Slow & Quick Motion in Full HD XAVC 10-bit 4:2:2. For 24p projects, the result is gorgeous 5x slow motion. There's no sacrifice in bit depth and no "windowing" of the sensor. Compared to normal frame rates, there's no crop factor, no loss in angle of view. You also get beautiful time lapse sequences down to 1 fps. And burst mode recording offers even higher frame rates - 240 fps, 480 fps and 960 fps - at specific resolutions.
  • The PXW-FS5M2 offers three trigger modes and recording can be stopped anytime START TRIGGER is selected.
  • During Super Slow Motion shooting, the readout from the image sensor is temporarily stored in the internal high speed cache memory. Then the data is processed into recording format and is written to the MS/SD memory.
  • Newly tuned picture tone:
  • With rich mid-range colours, alluring skin tones and a softer tonal look.
  • Straight out of the camera your content will look fresh and vivid, with subjects that really stand out.
  • Emotive visuals tuned using the same expertise developed while producing Sony's world-leading VENICE digital cinematography camera.
  • E-mount flexibility with Alpha mount system:
  • Sony's Alpha mount system offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. The PXW-FS5M2's E-Mount can take cinema lenses and SLR lenses with a third-party adaptor, as well as Sony's E-mount and A-mount lenses. So whether buying new lenses, or making use of lenses you've already purchased, the PXW-FS5M2 makes it easy.
  • Clear Image Zoom: This proprietary Sony technology significantly extends your ability to get closer to a remote scene while preserving image quality. Once you've zoomed in at maximum optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution technology can enlarge the image by additional 200%. It is also compatible with fixed focal length lenses, so you can zoom into a scene while using a prime lens.
  • Centre Scan Mode: To support traditional Super 16mm cinema lenses, the PXW-FS5M2 has a Centre Scan Mode which selectively outputs 2160x1080 from the sensor's centre. This gives the FS5 all the characteristics of a Super 16mm film camera and avoids any vignetting. It also offers a 2x Digital Extender zoom - effectively doubling your range for HD content.
  • Electronic Variable ND filter:
  • The PXW-FS5M2 inherits the benefits of the original FS5 with the built-in electronic variable Neutral Density (ND) filter. Unlike conventional optical ND Filters, the electronic ND Filter on the PXW-FS5M2 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. ND Filters can also be set to auto. This makes the PXW-FS5M2 ideal for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments - there's no need to change filters as lighting conditions change and variable control makes it easy to keep depth of field under control.
  • Instant HDR workflow w/ HLG:
  • Shoot, edit and view HDR content in HLG without the need for additional colour grading.
  • As the expanding need for HDR content continues, internet video platforms and professionals producing corporate or event content are paying more attention to the added value of HDR. They need to deliver content quickly, without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content. To meet this demand, the PXW-FS5 offers Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording, in addition to S-Log3, for easy file-based workflows, while achieving the image quality of HDR. This simple workflow enables the shooting, editing and viewing of HDR content in HLG, without devoting a lot of time to post-production work and additional colour grading.
  • Dual media slots with Relay and Simul mode selection:
  • Dual media slots with independent record control: To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the PXW-FS5M2 is equipped with two memory card slots. 'RELAY' mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while 'SIMUL' mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The PXW-FS5M2's three start/stop buttons on the grip, handle and camcorder body, can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in 'SIMUL' mode.
  • Lightweight, compact and flexible design for mobility:
  • Lightweight but robust: Despite its amazingly light 0.8kg body, the PXW-FS5M2 is more than tough enough for the rigors of real-world shooting. The main frame is magnesium, for high rigidity and light weight.
  • Versatile monitoring: However you want to shoot, the PXW-FS5M2 adapts to fit your style. Its 3.5-inch LCD screen can be attached in no less than nine different locations: three on top of the handle and another six on top of the body. And once attached, the positioning of the screen can be freely adjusted - for example either beside the camera body or directly along the axis of the lens.
  • Modular design for easy integration: The PXW-FS5M2 is designed to be taken apart quickly and easily, with no need for custom tools. There are also 1/4-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in underwater housing. For tripod mounting, there's a 3/8-inch screw hole on the bottom. You can even add the FS7's rosette mount* to securely attach an FS7 arm and compatible third-party accessories.
  • *Rosette mount component available from Sony service centres.
  • Multi-interface (MI) Shoe:
  • The PXW-FS5M2 takes advantage of Sony's flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light.*
  • *Accessories sold separately. HVL-LBPC light does not draw power from PXW-FS5M2.
  • Simple Live Solution when combined with MCX-500 Live Producer and RM-30BP Remote (Sold Separately):
  • The PXW-FS5M2 works seamlessly with the MCX-500 and RM-30BP remote to form a cost-effective Live Production System. A Tally indicator will automatically appear on each camera's LCD panel and viewfinder. A red icon indicates when the shot is live (PGM) while Green indicates preview mode (NEXT). The MCX-500 supports mixing between eight video sources, four stereo embedded audio channels plus two XLR Inputs, and a dedicated Title Input. There are both internal recording and live streaming via Ustream, Facebook Live and YouTube Live. (Facebook Live and YouTube Live require V2.0 firmware.)
  • Optional MPEG HD422 (CBKZ-SLMP) license (Sold Separately):
  • The Optional CBKZ-SLMP MPEG HD Upgrade License provides additional recording capabilities:
  • MPEG HD422 50Mbps recording: 1920x1080 at 59.94i/50i/29.97p/25p/23.98p, and 1280x720 at 59.94p/50p.
  • MPEG HD420 35Mbps recording: 1920x1080 at 59.94i/50i/29.97p/25p/23.98p, 1440x1080 at 59.94i/50i, and 1280x720 at 59.94p/50p.
  • Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS lens with power zoom:
  • Weighing only 427g, the SELP18105G is an ideal partner for the FS5M2 delivering stunning imagery with a 6x power zoom which is easily adjusted by a zoom lever on the camera's grip and handle.
  • Mid-range Power Zoom Lens
  • 6x Zoom Range
  • Zoom Lever
  • Filter Diameter: 72mm
  • High overall performance and contrast in first E-mount G Lens:
  • True to its high-end G Lens heritage, the SELP18105G lens features two ED glass elements and three aspherical elements for high resolution and contrast throughout the entire zoom range
  • Distortion at the wide end of the zoom range, and spherical/color aberration at the telephoto end, are effectively controlled so that beautiful rendering with excellent contrast is achieved at any focal length
  • A circular aperture design ensures that defocused areas are attractive too, providing an extensive palette of expressive imaging options
  • Handycam camcorder technology for fast, quiet focus:
  • Zoom operation noise has been reduced to the same level as Handycam camcorders
  • This is the world's first mid-range zoom for APS-C cameras to feature this type of "floating axis" construction used in Handycam camcorders, achieving exceptionally smooth, quiet focus and zoom operation
  • Another benefit of this type of constructions is that the length of the lens does not change while focusing or zooming, contributing to consistently easy handling
  • Zoom lever for continuous zoom speed control and new expressive freedom:
  • Similar to Handycam camcorders, a zoom lever on the side of the lens allows both variable and fixed-speed power zooming
  • Variable speed control is step less, for enhanced speed control freedom
  • The zoom level can be operated while maintaining a stable grip on the camera, minimizing the likelihood that blur will occur due to camera shake
  • And since an independent focus ring is provided, the zoom ring can be used for power zoom control even while focusing manually
  • Constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range enhances shooting convenience:
  • A constant maximum aperture of F4 throughout the zoom range provides plenty of "brightness" for fast shutter speeds even in relatively low-light situations
  • The same shutter speed and ISO settings can be maintained at all focal lengths when shooting stills, and consistently low noise can be maintained throughout the zoom range when shooting movies
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization:
  • Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization can significantly reduce image blur
  • In addition to its advantages for normal shooting, Optical SteadyShot works with the Anti Motion Blur and Handheld Twilight modes to create clear, blur-free, low-noise images at night, indoors, or in any conditions that would otherwise be a challenge due to low light conditions, without making it necessary to boost sensitivity
