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.
  • Full-frame Image Capture Even in Dim Light
    The FX3's full-frame image sensor is coupled with innovative light-gathering techniques to let you capture clear and usable images even in dim light. The standard ISO sensitivity of 80–102400 for movies is expandable all the way up to 409600.
     
  • Wide Dynamic range, Wider Creative expression
    The FX3 offers an exceptional 15+ stops2 of dynamic range to handle settings ranging from well-lit interiors and outdoors in mid-day to morning and evening shots. Capture every nuance, and allow for unprecedented cinematic freedom in color grading.
     
  • Stunning Bokeh & Full-frame Creativity
    Capture the scene in cinematic 4K resolution, with the shallow depth of field, stunning bokeh, and cinematic freedom made possible with a full-frame sensor.
     
  • Cinematic color science of S-Cinetone
    S-Cinetone color, developed for Sony's acclaimed FX9, is the default look on the FX3 for cinematic expression. It's precisely tuned to meet the requirements of today's content creators, with rich color and natural skin tones that match other Cinema Line cameras without grading.
     
  • 4K 120fps with Every Frame in Focus
    Even at high frame rates, detailed 4K imagery is captured thanks to the FX3's high-precision AF and high-speed readout capabilities. Slow and Quick (S&Q) mode gives you full control over the shooting frame rate, for beautiful motion sequences at up to 5x slow motion (with 24p output).
     
  • 10-bit S-Log3 & HDR Recording for Smooth Gradations
    S-Lig3 gamma curve and S-Gamut3.Cine enable shooting with high-quality color reproduction over a wide dynamic range, and they make it easy to match up footage with shots from other Cinema Line cameras during post production. In addition, an HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile enables direct HDR (HLG) playback on compatible TVs with no post-production.
     
  • 16-bit RAW HDMI Output
    For demanding production workflows, 16-bit RAW output is available over HDMI connection to compatible external recorders while XAVC HS 4K, XAVC S 4K, or XAVC S-I 4K, and proxy files are simultaneously captured in-camera. RAW video output is 4264x2408 [16:9] resolution, exceeding DCI-4K resolution.
     
  • Enjoy Rich Detail & Realistic Color
    The FX3 is capable of 4K internal recording, 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 color sampling with All Intra on top of Lon-GOP compression. This makes it possible to push your color grades further while still retaining natural gradation, for true editing freedom.
     
  • Dependable, Highly Accurate Autofocus
    The FX3's full-frame image sensor is coupled with innovative light-gathering techniques to let you capture clear and usable images even in dim light. The standard ISO sensitivity of 80–102400 for movies is expandable all the way up to 409600.
     
  • Sophisticated Tracking AF for Steady Focus
    Sophisticated tracking features keep your subject in steady focus, so you can concentrate on composition. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes, while Real-time Tracking is powered by Sony's unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms.
     
  • Smooth Transitions & Touch Focus Control
    The FX3 includes AF Transition Speed in seven settings, to easily create rack focus, and five AF Subject Shift Sensitivity settings, which allows the user to customize how easily AF will switch or stay with the locked-on subject. You can also select the subject you want to focus on simply by touching the LCD monitor.
     
  • High-performance E-mount Lenses for Movies
    Experience smooth, responsive autofocus with Sony's E-mount lenses, with premium optical performance and operability for demanding cinematography applications. The unique linear-drive actuator technology in Sony's E-mount lenses provides smoother, more precise and tenacious AF performance to support your creative endeavors.
     
  • High-mobility Performance Wherever You Go
    With a compact size and light weight, the FX3 is designed for high mobility. The attached handle and cage-free accessory mounting holes allow fast setup, fluid shooting, and quick pack-down. The main body and covers are constructed from lightweight magnesium alloy to enhance durability and performance even in challenging environments.
     
  • Attachable XLR Handle
    A handle equipped with an XLR adaptor with two full size XLR terminals can be attached to the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe on the camera for more comfortable and stable camerawork in difficult shooting situations, such as low-position shots.
     
  • In-camera Image Stabilization
    Active Mode is an optical in-body 5-axis image stabilization system that provides increased stabilization for movie shooting. To preserve image quality, the gyroscope sensor accurately measures camera shake and compensates optically. This makes stable video possible even when shooting hand-held without gimbal use, while walking, and at 4K resolution.
     
  • Image Stabilization & Easier Editing with Catalyst
    Camera-shake metadata is recorded by the built-in gyro, allowing handheld footage to be smoothed out and stabilized in post-production. Using Sony's Catalyst Browse / Catalyst Prepare desktop application10 you can easily balance automated shake-compensation and image-trimming levels. Catalyst can also make effective use of recorded camera-rotation data.
     
  • Front & Rear Tally Lamps
    Tally lights on the front and rear of the FX3 indicate whether the camera is recording at any given moment. They are clearly visible to both the camera operator and the person performing in front of the camera.
     
  • Vari-angle LCD Touch-panel Monitor
    The custom ventilation system and chassis design help to prevent the thermal shut down of shooting8 at high frame rates and 4K (QFHD) resolutions. The number of heat sinks, the shape of air intakes and exhaust vents as well as the location of the low-noise fan9, and airflow paths have all been calculated with precision to ensure that optimum ventilation is achieved.
     
  • Essential Controls for Efficient Solo Shooting
    In addition to six customizable buttons, frequently used controls are within easy one-handed reach, leaving your other hand free for lens operation or balance. And usability is enhanced by multiple screw holes on the body and handle, allowing accessories to be attached directly.
     
  • Uninterrupted 4K/60p Recording
    For uninterrupted 4K/60p recording, the FX3 is designed with an innovative heat dissipation system. Heatsink placement, airflow structure, and a silent cooling fan work to optimize even during long shoots.
     
  • XLR Adaptor & Digital Input for Quality Audio
    In addition to the camera's convenient built-in microphone, a variety of professional microphones can be connected externally via the full-size XLR connectors on the handle through a digital audio interface via Multi Interface Shoe. Three recording formats can be selected, including 24-bit 4-channel. Digital audio recording is also possible by attaching a digital microphone such as the ECM-B1M even when the handle is not used.
     
  • Dual-high Speed Media Slots
    Designed for next-generation filming requirements, CFExpress Type A cards support high bit-rate recording. The camera's slots are ready for CFExpress Type A as well as conventional SDXC HUS-I and UHS-II cards, and having two identical media slots makes relay recording or backup shooting posslble.
     
  • Remote Camera Control & Network Transfer
    A network connection, via Wi-Fi® or wired via a USB Type-C connector, provides support for remote control from smartphones or tablets, with either NFC one-touch or manual pairing. Remote shooting can be controlled from a PC with Sony's Imaging Edge Desktop™ application, or from a mobile device with Imaging Edge Mobile™. And captured still and movie files can be transferred using high-speed FTP.
     
  • Remote Preview, Shooting, & Streaming
    Either wired or wireless remote shooting is available from a PC, or from a mobile device with Imaging Edge Mobile installed, for more efficient workflows and shooting in challenging environments. Imaging Edge Webcam™ enables high-image-quality online video communication.
