Sony has officially announced the latest addition to the Cinema Line, the FX3 camera, which combines features of Sony's Alpha mirrorless camera line-up with digital cinema technology. 

You can see the Alpha influences as soon as you look at the FX3 as its body is very similar to the Sony Alpha A7C design with an added deep grip that provides stability when capturing footage. 

There's a 10.2 megapixel full-frame back-illuminated CMOS Exmor R sensor and BIONZ XR image-processing engine built-in along with Fast Hybrid Auto Focus, Touch Tracking (real-time tracking), 5-axis optical in-body image stabilisation and Real-time Eye AF - all found on the Sony Alpha cameras

Other features include 4K 60p recording, ultra-high sensitivity with ISO expandable to 409,600, 15+ stops of dynamic range, S-Cinetone which gives footage a cinematic look without post-processing and "Active Mode" image stabilisation which supports handheld movie shooting.


A Multi-thread (1/4-20 UNC) body makes it easy to mount accessories while the supplied XLR handle unit securely attaches to the body via the Multi Interface Shoe without any special tools and provides three additional thread holes for accessories: two on the top and one on the end. External monitors, recorders, wireless microphone receivers, the accessory shoe kit (cold shoe plate), or other add-ons can be securely attached. To enable high-quality audio, the XLR handle unit includes two XLR/TRS audio inputs to the FX3.

The FX3 full-frame Cinema Line camera will be available in March 2021 and will be sold for approximately £4,200.
