  • ISO expandable up to 409600
  • Cinematic Freedom:
  • Sony's FX3 Cinema Line camera brings the visions of passionate content creators to life. Cinematic expression is matched with reliable performance and streamlined operation to serve the needs of today's creative community. Compact and lightweight, it's easy to carry and handle.
  • 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, minimizing 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 optimizing 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 optimized for natural skin tones and mid-range colours, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction even without post-production grading.
  • 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 bit rate, up to 600 Mbps, so is ideal for capturing complex motion and allowing maximum flexibility and playback performance during post-production.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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 customized 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.
  • 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 analyzing 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 that you have full creative control of the FX3's powerful AF technology.
