Sony Launches FX3 Full-Frame Camera

Sony has launched the FX3 full-frame camera with cinematic look and enhanced operability for creators. It is the most compact and lightweight cinema line camera for creators who strive for new cinematic freedom.

Create movies with in-camera 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second. Extraordinarily smooth slow-motion imagery (up to 5x) at QFHD (3840 x 2160) resolution with autofocus provides new expressive capability.

It weighs just 715g, including the battery and memory cards, and the body is 77.8mm high, 129.7mm wide and 84.5mm deep – without protrusions. The camera grip has been carefully designed to provide optimum flexibility, stability and comfort for long shoots.

The FX3 offers Fast Hybrid autofocus (AF) by using the 627 points focal plane phase-detection system during movie recording. The camera is further enhanced with Touch Tracking, where simply touching the desired subject on the monitor screen initiates auto focus and tracking on that subject.

Precise and smooth focus is maintained with Real-time Eye AF – technology that pinpoints the eyes even when subjects are looking down or up at steep angles. Additionally, other AF features have been included and refined in response to feedback from professional users, including AF Transition Speed, AF Subject Shift Sensitivity, intuitive control and AF support when focusing manually.

It has a detachable XLR handle unit with two of XLR/TRS audio input “Active Mode” image stabilisation supports handheld movie shooting.

The FX3 will be available at Sony Store – 313@somerset, Sony Store online and Cathay Photo from April 2021.
