Product Description

The Sony FX30 Digital Cinema Camera is paired with an all new back-illuminated APS-C Exmor R™ CMOS sensor (Super 35mm format), delivering exceptional results with high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic latitude. The 6K oversampled image compresses a vast amount of information into 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) output, delivering 4K movies with overwhelming resolution. The image sensor maximizes light collection efficiency so that clear, usable images can be captured even in challenging low light. Standard ISO sensitivity is 100 to 32000, and latitude is an impressively wide 14+ stops when recording in S-Log3 gamma.

S-Log3 recording for smooth cinematic color grading

The S-Log3 gamma curve provided in the FX30 has been designed with an emphasis on smooth gradations that make it easier to achieve cinematic image quality when colour grading in post production. S-Log3 and S-Gamut3.Cine not only offer high-quality color reproduction over a wide latitude, but also facilitate colour matching with footage from other Cinema Line cameras. To bring out the best in footage shot with the FX30, special care has been taken to adjust the camera’s output to ensure that the highest image quality can be easily achieved during post processing.

Import user LUTs for ultimate creator control
When recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve, the lowcontrast image displayed on the monitor can make it difficult to judge how the final image will look. The FX30 allows custom LUTs to be applied to the LCD monitor and HDMI output, providing a more accurate preview of the final image. User LUTs can be applied to the LCD monitor and HDMI output while recording, or embedded in clips to facilitate post-production processing. The FX30 even includes a new s709 preview LUT that can provide a more cinematic.

Recording formats that facilitate visual expression

Capable of capturing 10-bit 4:2:2 video internally when using Long GOP or All Intra compression, the FX30 makes it possible to grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom. Additionally, the FX30 supports the XAVC HS format recording, using the MPEG-H HEVC/H.265 codec roughly doubles the compression efficiency. Compared to a normal 4K XAVC S format, XAVC HS format allows for detailed 10-bit video with 4:2:2 colour sampling at comparable or lower data rates.

Advanced Autofocus for movie makers

Wide-area autofocus with intelligent tracking uses focalplane phase-detection for tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame. Tracking features keep the subject in steady focus so the user can concentrate on composition. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes (human, animal, or bird), while Real-time Tracking provides reliable tracking thanks to Sony‘s unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms. Stable AF and flexible focusing are available for a wide range of shooting situations. Improved tracking is achieved when shooting at high frame rates such as 120p.

Additionally detailed AF settings are capable through AF Transition Speed and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity. These parameters allow for more detailed AF control. AF Transition Speed is ideal for creating rack focus effects to effectively guide the viewers’ eye. AF Subject Shift Sensitivity determines how “sticky” AF will be. Both parameters can be assigned to custom keys for fast access while shooting.

Compact and lightweight form factor

The FX30 body is just 77.8 mm high, 129.7 mm wide, and 84.5 mm deep, excluding protrusions. It weighs just 646 grams with battery and memory card or 951 grams with XLR handle unit, and features a distinctive flat-top design that is suitable not only for handheld shooting, but for gimbal mounting. The camera grip has been designed to provide optimum flexibility, stability, and comfort for extended handheld shooting sessions.

Flexible operability with redesigned menu
It is possible to access frame rates, shutter speed, change LUTs, adjust focus modes, and other essential shooting parameters via a list-style Main menu. The Main menu display can be assigned to a custom button so that parameters can be quickly checked and edited as needed prior to shooting. Separate Main menus optimized for movies and stills are provided.
