Sony FX30 Cinema Camera

 

 

Leap into the world of filmmaking

Sony's acclaimed Cinema Line cameras set the standard for filmmaking, with beautiful cinematic imagery, high performance and highly efficient workflow. Enjoy hassle-free shooting with S-Cinetone™ and S-Log3 for high-level grading plus numerous other features. The compact FX30 makes filmmaking more accessible than ever for up-and-coming creators.

Support for filmmaking

The FX30 captures stunning images with 6K oversampling and a truly cinematic look. Its compact size lets you take it anywhere, and sophisticated AF and stabilization features let you concentrate on composition, not the complexity of crews and rigging.

Designed for visual storytelling

The FX30's S-Cinetone picture profile gives you a beautiful cinematic look straight out of the camera. Features like Dual Base ISO and Cine EI are designed to provide gorgeous images for cinematic shooting and workflow.

Drawing on the Cinema Line heritage

Film industry experience allied with state-of-the-art imaging technology. The outstanding Cinema Line series of cinema cameras are built on decades of experience in the film industry and supported by Sony's sophisticated new technologies on the cutting edge of digital imaging.

Beautiful imagery

Advanced technology for outstanding resolution. The FX30's back-illuminated Exmor™ R APS-C CMOS sensor captures memorable Super 35mm imagery with outstanding resolution and shallow depth of field. 6K oversampling compresses a vast amount of information into 4K recording and output, and the BIONZ XR™ processing engine enables natural gradations, realistic colour reproduction, low noise, and other image quality improvements.

S-Cinetone gives you a cinematic look without grading

The S-Cinetone picture profile provides cinematic-looking colour, skin tones and other visual aspects straight out of the camera, without the need for any post-production colour grading.

Infinite possibilities of expression with S-Log3

For production colour matching, and to access the full capabilities of the image sensor, the FX30 can shoot with an S-Log3 gamma curve. This gives you access to the FX30's expansive colour gamut and 14+ stops latitude, for true cinematic image quality during post-production colour grading.

User LUTs provide an accurate image preview

Customizable LUTs, both preset and user-supplied, can be applied to the FX30's LCD monitor display, recorded footage, and HDMI output to give you a better and more accurate idea of what your final image will look like.

10-bit 4:2:2 recording for greater editing latitude

The FX30 can record 10-bit 4:2:2 video internally when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression, providing more colour information so you can produce fuller, more natural gradations in post-production.

Cine EI, Cine EI Quick, and Flexible ISO modes

Flexible exposure mode handling. Cine EI offers wide latitude and the highest possible image quality, while Cine EI Quick simplifies setup by automatically selecting the camera's base ISO. Flexible ISO provides the greatest flexibility for exposure settings.

Dual Base ISO (ISO800 / ISO2500)

With this feature, you can manually set your base ISO to 2500 instead of 800 in low-light situations. Noise levels at both settings are about the same, so this gives you cleaner footage in low light.

Slow-motion images at up to 120 frames per second

With 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second with autofocus, you can create extraordinarily smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery4 to expand your storytelling options.

Reliable AF maintains a steady focus

Sophisticated tracking features let you concentrate on your shoot. The FX30 provides stable AF and flexible focusing for a wide range of shooting situations. Wide-area AF provides tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame, with Real-time Tracking based on Sony's unique, AI-based subject recognition. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes, tailored to humans, birds and animals.

In-body image stabilization for hand-held shooting

Active Mode is a 5-axis image stabilisation mode that uses a precision gyroscope sensor and optical compensation, enabling hand-held shooting at 4K resolution without a gimbal.

Compensation for focused breathing

In-camera Focus Breathing Compensation, when used with compatible lenses, provides more stable imagery by minimizing the field-of-view shift that can occur when racking focus. Additional breathing compensation is also available in post-production software, supported by camera metadata.

A creative partner you can rely on

Ready to go wherever you shoot

Compact and light in weight, the FX30 can be operated in combination with gimbals and drones, or with a variety of attached equipment. It's designed to withstand long shoots, with sturdy construction suited to harsh conditions.

Compact, lightweight body

Designed for mobility and comfortable operation. Weighing in at 646 g with battery and memory card and 951 g with the XLR handle unit, the FX30 features a distinctive flat-top design that's suitable for either handheld shooting or gimbal mounting. The camera grip has been designed to provide optimum flexibility, stability, and comfort for extended handheld shooting sessions.

Three thread holes in the XLR handle unit for accessories

External monitors, recorders, batteries, video lights, extension grips, wireless microphone receivers, or other add-ons can be stably and securely attached to the FX30's XLR handle unit. 

Reliable operation for long shoots at 4K

With its highly efficient cooling system and stable power supply (from a high-capacity Z100 battery or via USB PD), the FX30 is designed to keep working reliably over extended shoots.

Durable magnesium alloy chassis

 The main body and covers of the FX30 are constructed from a lightweight magnesium alloy to enhance durability and performance even in challenging environments.

Streamlined operational control

New main menu

Quick access to frequently used features. While shooting, you can access frame rate, shutter speed, and other essential shooting parameters via a list-style main menu. Display of the main menu 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.

Two CFexpress Type A and SD card-compatible media slots

CFexpress Type A is the next standard for compact storage, with fast write/read speeds suitable for 4K movie recording at high bit rates. Dual slots enable either a relay or simultaneous recording.

Flexible high-resolution touch-panel LCD monitor

A side-opening vari-angle rear monitor allows broad positioning and framing freedom. It's bright enough for easy outdoor daytime viewing, and it incorporates a swipe-to-access function menu.

Broad connectivity in a compact body

An HDMI Type-A connector can be used for external recorders and display devices. Other connectors include USB Type-C®, Multi/Micro-USB, mic, headphones, and a Multi Interface Shoe with a built-in digital audio interface.

16-bit RAW output via HDMI

For demanding workflows, 16-bit RAW output11 is available over HDMI connection to compatible external recorders. RAW video output is 4672 x 2628 [16:9] resolution, exceeding DCI-4K resolution.

Hardware and software versatility

Expandable to meet your needs

Whether it's finding the perfect lens for your shoot, choosing the best external audio source or accommodating post-production workflow requirements, the FX30 has you covered.

One Mount: connect seamlessly with E-mount

The One Mount concept is based on Sony's mount platform of interchangeable lenses. The FX30 is compatible with all E-mount lenses, so you can choose the right lens for any situation. 

Choose your audio input source

The FX30's XLR handle unit includes two XLR audio inputs, enabling quick and easy connection to a variety of external XLR microphones to capture a high-quality audio track. Together with the XLR inputs, an additional 3.5mm 2" mini jack supports 4" input. The FX30's Multi-interface Shoe provides compatibility with a wide range of Sony Microphones. 

Enhanced image stabilisation and easier workflows with Catalyst

The FX30 records a wealth of metadata for use with Sony's Catalyst Browse Prepare applications, including camera shake, camera rotation, breathing compensation, embedded LUT's and shot marks.

Pursuing a sustainable product ecosystem

Measures for the environment include using recycled materials in production, managing environmental impact throughout the supply chain, using renewable energy in production, and using recyclable non-plastic packaging materials.

Working towards a zero footprint

The SORPLAS™ material used in the construction of the FX30 is repeatedly recyclable, durable, oil resistant, and of high quality. Other recyclable materials are also used for our camera bodies as much as possible, reducing stress on the environment without compromising performance or functionality in any way.
