The Sony FX30 Cine Cam is Sony’s recent addition to its FX Cinema Line of cameras. Almost identical to the magnesium alloy FX3, but swaps out the full-frame sensor with a smaller 26MP Super35/APS-C backside-illuminated CMOS sensor.
The FX30 can record 4K/60p 10-bit 4:2:2 video natively in H.265 or H.264, as well as output 16-bit RAW video over HDMI to an external recorder. It can also capture 4K/120p with a 1.62x crop and stills in full APS-C at 6,192×4,128 pixels.
Other features include dual base 800 and 2500 ISO, a 100 to 32,000 ISO range, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, and real-time Eye AF with real-time tracking. Like the FX3, the FX30 features a cooling fan, dual CFexpress/SDXC card slots, and a full-size HDMI socket.
The FX30, Like other Cinema Line cameras, features S-Log3 Flexible ISO modes for recording, log shooting modes by enabling Cine EI or Cine EI Quick, and includes Sony’s S-Cinetone profile.The Sony FX30 with the XLR microphone handle, FX30B, is priced at $2200, while the body-only FX30 is also available with a $1800 price tag. The camera is available online now at Sony and at selected retailers.
