Sony’s FX30 Cinema Line Camera Is Now Available for $1800

Sony has just released the lowest-priced camera in its FX Cinema Line. The FX30 is essentially an updated version of the FX3 with a smaller APS-C sensor.

The FX30 has a new APS-C EXMOR R CMOS sensor with 20.1 megapixels and a back light. It shoots in the standard Super 35 format. The sensor offers a wide dynamic range of 14 stops and two different base ISO settings of 800 and 2500.

By employing a supersampled version of the 6K sensor, the camera is able to record 4K video in 24p, 30p, and 60p. With a 1.62x crop, it can capture 4K at 120 frames per second. 10-bit 4:2:2 H.265 or H.264 video recording is supported, with RAW output over HDMI for use with an external Atmos Ninja V+ recorder.

The FX30, like other Cinema Line cameras, supports recording in S-Log3 and has Log shooting modes by enabling Cine EI, Cine EI Quick, and Flexible ISO. In addition, Sony’s S-Cinetone profile is included into the camera to provide accurate colors right out of the camera.

The FX30 is nearly identical to the FX3 in every respect apart from the sensor. It shares the same body, threaded accessory mounts, and control layout designed with video recording in mind, although still photographs can be taken if necessary. Memory cards such as CFexpress Type A and SDXC/SDHC can be used in its two card slots. Additionally, the camera may function as a webcam when connected to a computer through USB.

The Sony FX30 may be yours for $2200 as of its late-October release date. The FX30B model, which lacks the XLR microphone handle, will be available for purchase and cost $1800.
