Sony Launches FX3 Full-Frame Camera
set independently. A short press of
the assigned custom buttons enables
switching between locking the dial
/ Manual, and a long press on the
custom buttons allows on-off switching
of Auto setting.

cables or batteries, it offers stressfree set up.
The FX3 offers Fast Hybrid autofocus
(AF) by using the 627 points7 focal
plane phase-detection system during
movie recording. The camera is
further enhanced with Touch Tracking
(Real-time 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 eye 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. These AF features have been
implemented in the FX3 to ensure
stable, flexible and precise focusing in
any situation and are easy to operate
for solo shoots.
The FX3 features 5-axis optical
in-body image stabilisation - highly
effective for handheld shooting. A
high precision stabilisation unit and
gyro sensors have made it possible
to provide an Active Mode4 that is
dedicated to movie shooting in each
format, including 4K. In-body image
stabilisation means that effective
stabilisation can be achieved with
a wide range of lenses, including
E-mount lenses that do not include
stabilisation of their own. In addition,
the FX3 records image stabilisation
metadata that can be done more

practical adjustment during postproduction using Catalyst Browse/
Prepare8.
Expandability and Operability
for Content Creators

Operability
No compromises have been made
when designing the FX3 in terms of
professional control and operability.
The buttons frequently used in movie
shooting such as ISO, iris, and white
balance adjustment are located on the
grip and on the top of the body. The
design allows solo creators to control
the buttons with one hand. In addition,
140 functions assignable to 15 custom
keys allow for ultimate efficiency.
The zoom lever located on the top of
the grip not only controls compatible
powered zoom lenses, but also allows
Clear Image Zoom to be also used with
unpowered zoom and prime lenses
with less image degradation - reducing
the number of lenses required for
many projects. This lever also enables
smooth zooming that is difficult for
manual zoom-ring control.
Recording lamps (tally) are provided
on the upper front and rear of the
camera, so that operator can easily
distinguish when the camera is rolling.
A side-opening vari-angle touch-panel
LCD monitor allows for easy operation
and is suitable for gimbal-mounted
shots, complicated angles, handheld
operation and more. Flexible Exposure
Mode allows the FX3 to have a similar
Auto/Manual switch operation as other
FX series cameras for aperture (iris),
shutter speed, and ISO, which can be

Reliability

features and performance; they also
need reliability and durability. The FX3

without thermal shutdown5. The newly
developed fan provides high-efficiency
cooling.
The new camera also features a
