Key Features

In-body optical image stabilisation for handheld shooting

In-body optical image stabilisation for handheld shooting

Relying on a new high-precision stabilisation unit, gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms, the camera's Optical SteadyShot Active Mode provides precise optical image compensation, for outstanding results for 4K video recording , even while walking. With this unprecedented level of stabilisation it's possible to shoot with the camera only, taking advantage of the compact size and mobility. [1] Track of camera shake [2] Standard [3] Active

XLR adaptor and digital input for quality audio

XLR adaptor and digital input for quality audio

The handle of the FX3 includes two independent full-size XLR connectors (XLR/TRS combo) to connect external professional microphones through a digital audio interface via the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe. Three recording formats can be selected, including 24-bit 4-channel.

HDMI Type-A output and monitoring options

HDMI Type-A output and monitoring options

With a durable and versatile HDMI Type-A jack, it is possible to simultaneously output video to the camera's LCD monitor, an HDMI-connected external recording or monitoring device.

Uninterrupted 4K 60p recording

Uninterrupted 4K 60p recording

For uninterrupted 4K 60p recording, the FX3 features an innovative heat dissipation structure, including a unique Sony S (sigma) shaped graphite-alloy heatsink. A complete internal redesign optimised airflow and placement of heatsinks. When required, a silent cooling fan provides ventilation for continuous recording at full resolution, with intake and exhaust air structurally isolated to maintain strong dust and moisture resistance.

Data communications to support on-site workflow

Data communications to support on-site workflow

Wireless 5GHz/2.4GHz LAN connections are supported, as are 1000BASE-T Ethernet network connections via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor cable connected to the camera's USB Type C terminal supporting SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps (USB 3.2). Remote shooting can be controlled from a PC with Sony's Imaging Edge Desktop application, or from a mobile device with Imaging Edge Mobile. Wired and wireless FTP transfer for data files as well as remote shooting capabilities support professional workflows during shoots.

Metadata to facilitate editing with Catalyst

Metadata to facilitate editing with Catalyst

Sony's Catalyst Browse and Prepare software are ideal production partners for the FX3. The FX3 records two types of supplementary metadata: image stabilisation and camera rotation. These can be useful when previewing and preparing to edit in Sony's free Catalyst Browse or cost-effective Catalyst Prepare desktop applications.

Expand your vision with Creative Look

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 customised 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

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. [1] High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (colour grading required) [2] Instant high-quality image (colour grading not required)

Flexible exposure mode

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 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

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 analysing 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 you have full creative control of the FX3's powerful AF technology.
