Film industry experience allied with state-of-the-art imaging technologyThe outstanding Cinema Line series of cinema cameras is 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 resolutionThe FX30's back-illuminated Exmor™ R APS-C CMOS sensor captures memorable 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 gradingThe 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-Log3For 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+ latitude, for true cinematic image quality during post-production colour grading.

10-bit 4:2:2 recording for greater editing latitudeThe 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 handlingCine EI offers wide latitude and the highest possible image quality, while Cine EI Quick simplifies setup by automatically switching 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.
