New Cinematic Freedom.
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+ stops 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 Gradiations.
S-Log3 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 post-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 4264 x 2408 [16:9] resolution, exceeding DCI-4K resolution.
Enjoy Rich Color 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 Long-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 wide-area AF with intelligent tracking uses focal-plane phase-detection for tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame. The Fast Hybrid AF system delivers precise focusing even when shooting at a shallow depth of field and at high frame rates of 120p in 4K (QFHD).
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 Stablization.
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.

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 3.0-type (1.44 million-dot) LCD touch-screen panel features a side-opening design to allow flexible positioning and improved visibility when the camera is mounted on gimbals. Touch-panel support also provides intuitive menu control for many camera settings.
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.
Uniterrupted 4K & 60P Shooting.
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 cooling even during long shoots.
Dual High-Speed Media Slots.
Designed for next-generation filmmaking 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 UHS-I and UHS-II cards, and having two identical media slots makes relay or backup shooting possible.
XLR Adapter & 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 (MI) 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.
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.
