Sony FX3 Camera
The Sony FX3 combines the best of high-end cinema cameras with Sony's immensely popular A7S III and packages it all in a small, compact body. But don't let its size fool you; it packs a lot of excellent features. The camera is powered by a 12.1MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and a BIONZ XR processor, enabling it to capture 4K video with internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling or 16-bit raw output. Auto-focus on the Sony FX3 camera is second to none.
While the internals of the Sony FX3 are almost identical to the A7S III, the former is clearly aimed at cinema shooters. The FX3 lacks a viewfinder in favor of saving weight as most people will be using an external monitor with this camera or shooting with the built-in LCD screen; it also comes with a detachable handle to aid comfort and help get smooth footage when shooting video. The detachable handle has two XLR inputs, allowing high-quality external audio recording equipment to be directly integrated into your shooting setup.
Overall, the Sony FX3 will likely appeal to dedicated video shooters looking for an extremely capable video setup in a compact, built-for-purpose body.
