Features

Camera sensor image

Memorable imagery from the Exmor R™ CMOS sensor

The FX30’s back-illuminated Exmor R APS-C CMOS sensor is ready to deliver memorable imagery with outstanding resolution and a shallow depth of field. Sony’s industry-leading image technology is packed into a new Super 35 format (20.1 megapixel) sensor with wide latitude. Capture the scene in 4K resolution with expressive depth of field, stunning bokeh and cinematic freedom.

S-Cinetone™ for a cinematic look without grading

The FX30 incorporates S-Cinetone, based on the colour science behind the highly regarded colour and skin tones of the FX9 and FX6. It delivers the natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights. Because S-Cinetone produces all this directly within the camera, it’s easy to achieve a beautiful cinematic look without the necessity of post-production grading.

Recording formats for image quality and post-production

The FX30 can record 10-bit 4:2:2 video internally when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression, enabling fuller and more natural gradations and providing greater editing freedom. Recording in XAVC HS format roughly doubles compression efficiency, allowing detailed 10-bit video with 4:2:2 colour sampling at comparable or lower data rates, for even better image quality and manageable file sizes.

Dual Base ISO for cleaner images in low light

The Dual Base ISO feature provides two Base ISO settings; one at ISO 800 and one at ISO 2500. This allows you to select an appropriate noise floor, for clean images, as well as maximize the FX30’s dynamic range when shooting in both bright or low-light conditions. What’s more, a wide 14+ stops of latitude minimizes the risk of blown highlights or blocked shadows over a wide range of lighting conditions.

Log recording for smooth cinematic colour grading

For full-scale productions, the S-Log3 gamma curve provided in the FX30 has been designed for smooth gradations, and to make it easier to achieve cinematic image quality when colour grading in post-production. Both S-Log3 and S-Gamut3.Cine offer high-quality colour reproduction over a wide latitude, and 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.

New Log shooting modes for optimized image quality

Three modes are provided for recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve. Cine EI, used in Sony’s high-end Cinema Line models, offers wide latitude and the highest possible image quality. Cine EI Quick simplifies setup by automatically switching the camera’s Base ISO according to the selected Exposure Index (EI). And Flexible ISO provides the greatest flexibility for exposure settings. In addition, Sony’s s709 has been added to the available LUT presets.

See an accurate preview of the final image with user LUTs

When recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve, the low-contrast image on the monitor can make it difficult to judge what the final image will look like. For a more accurate preview, the FX30 allows customizable LUTs to be applied to the LCD monitor preview and HDMI output, and also embedded in clips to facilitate post-production processing. In addition to the preset LUTs, up to 16 user LUTs can be imported into the camera via memory card.

Dependable, highly accurate autofocus

Sophisticated tracking features keep your subject in steady focus so you can concentrate on composition. Wide-area AF, with intelligent tracking, uses focal-plane phase-detection for tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes (for humans, birds and animals), while Real-time Tracking provides reliable tracking based on Sony’s unique, AI-based subject recognition.

Sophisticated focus functions to handle any situation

The FX30 makes fast, accurate focusing as easy as possible. AF Assist smoothly switches between auto and manual focus, it enables easy rack focusing, and it can save time even when you are primarily using manual focus. Focus Map makes it easy to visualize depth of field while shooting, and Breathing Compensation provides a stable angle of view when rack focusing by minimizing the field-of-view shift that can occur with some lenses.

Active Mode image stabilization supports handheld movie shooting

Active Mode is an optical in-body 5-axis image stabilization mode that provides increased stabilization for movie shooting. A precision gyroscope sensor accurately measures camera shake and compensates optically, making stable video possible even when shooting hand-held without a gimbal, while walking, and at 4K resolution.

Catalyst browser interface with meta data

Metadata to facilitate editing with Catalyst

Sony’s Catalyst Browse and Prepare software are ideal production partners for the FX30. The camera records five types of metadata: LUTs, image stabilization, breathing, camera rotation and shot marks. These can be useful when previewing and preparing to edit in Sony’s free Catalyst Browse or purchased Catalyst Prepare software.

Proxy recording for efficient editing workflow

Low-bitrate HD proxy files can be recorded simultaneously in nearly all recording formats. The smaller proxy video files can be used for editing previews prior to final 4K online editing, reducing computer load and enabling a faster workflow.

Photographer shooting a still image

Still image shooting function

Because the FX30 can shoot stills as well as movies, it can be handy to use when you are location hunting. For example, you can use it to shoot stills that will be used in storyboards or pre-production presentations.

Multi-thread body makes a cage unnecessary

Designed for mobility and efficiency, the body of the FX30 features five thread holes (1/4-20 UNC) for accessories, making a cage unnecessary. While providing ample capacity for accessory attachment, the fact that no cage is required contributes to reduced system size and weight for easier handheld shooting. The XLR handle unit provides three additional thread holes so that accessories and add-ons can be stably and securely attached.

Camera main menu image

New Main menu for quick access to frequently used items

The camera’s new list-style main menu gives you access to frame rate, shutter speed and other essential shooting parameters. Main menu display can be assigned to a custom button so that parameters can be quickly checked and edited as needed prior to shooting.
