With its S-Cinetone™ and S-Log3 capabilities, the FX30 provides stunning visuals with high level grading that will take your films to the next level. Additionally, the camera's compact design makes it more accessible than ever for up-and-coming creators, making it easy to get started on your filmmaking journey.
Support for filmmaking
The Sony FX30 Super 35 Camera delivers stunning images with 6K oversampling and a true cinematic look. This compact camera is perfect for anyone who wants to take their photography or videography to the next level. With sophisticated AF and stabilization features, you can focus on composition and not worry about the complexity of crews and rigging.
Designed for visual storytelling
Its S-Cinetone picture profile provides a beautiful cinematic look, while features like Dual Base ISO and Cine EI ensure gorgeous images and workflow.
Drawing on the Cinema Line heritage
By fusing together the best of both worlds - experience in the film industry with the cutting edge of digital imaging technology - Sony has created a camera that is sure to exceed all expectations in terms of both quality and performance.
The back-illuminated Exmor R APS-C CMOS sensor ensures that your photos and videos will be of the highest quality, while the 6K oversampling compresses vast amounts of information into 4K recordings. Plus, with the BIONZ XR processing engine, you'll enjoy natural gradations, realistic color reproduction, and low noise levels in every image!
S-Cinetone gives you a cinematic look without grading
The S-Cinetone picture profile provides beautiful color, skin tones and other visual aspects that will make your videos and photos look amazing.
Infinite possibilities of expression with S-Log3
With its S-Log3 gamma curve, the FX30 provides access to an expansive color gamut and 14+ stops latitude, allowing for true cinematic image quality during post-production color grading.
User LUTs provide an accurate image preview
The Sony FX30 is a Super 35 camera that gives you the power to customize your LUTs to get the perfect final image. With both preset and user-supplied LUTs available, you can tailor the look of your recorded footage and HDMI output to match your specific needs.
10-bit 4:2:2 recording for greater editing latitude
With its 10-bit 4:2:2 video recording capabilities, this camera will allow you to produce more natural gradations in post-production, giving your films a fuller look. Plus, the Long GOP or All-Intra compression options provide more color information, making your films even more vibrant and colorful.
Cine EI, Cine EI Quick, and Flexible ISO modes
This camera features Cine EI2 and Cine EI Quick modes for easy setup and great latitude, respectively, while Flexible ISO provides terrific exposure options.
Dual Base ISO (ISO800 / ISO2500)
This camera comes with a base ISO of 2500, so you can get clean footage even in dimly lit environments. Plus, the noise levels are practically identical to those at the 800 ISO setting, meaning you won't have to sacrifice quality for quantity. So go ahead and shoot away in any lighting conditions.
Slow-motion images at up to 120 frames per second
With its 4K recording capabilities, the Sony FX30 Super 35 Camera allows you to capture stunningly smooth slow-motion footage at up to 120 frames per second. This means you can create incredible 5x (max.) slow-motion sequences that will really wow your viewers. Autofocus ensures that your shots are always crisp and clear, while the camera's lightweight design makes it easy to carry with you wherever you go.
Reliable AF maintains a steady focus
With its sophisticated tracking features and tenacious subject tracking, you'll be able to get the perfect shot every time. The wide-area AF provides stable AF and flexible focusing for a wide range of shooting situations, while the Real-time Tracking based on Sony's unique, AI-based subject recognition ensures precise focus on the face and eyes. The Real-time Eye AF also makes it easy to keep your shots in focus, even when your subject is moving around.
In-body image stabilization for hand-held shooting
With Active Mode, you can shoot hand-held at 4K resolution without the need for a gimbal, thanks to the precision gyroscope sensor and optical compensation.
Compensation for focus breathing
With in-camera focus breathing compensation, this camera can minimize field-of-view shift that could occur when racking focus. This feature, along with additional breathing compensation available in post-production software supported by camera metadata, makes the Sony FX30 Super 35 Camera an ideal choice for anyone looking to capture high-quality, stable imagery.
