Say hello to the FX30, Sony’s newest addition to their FS series of cameras. Those familiar with the series will already know about the Sony FX3 and the FX30 could be seen as the FX3’s understudy. Its price is well within the budget of your average consumer, and for those pursuing a path into video work, the FX30 with its up to date specs, provides a good option to do this.
The FX30 has a magnesium alloy body similar to the FX3. It has an Exmor R APS-C CMOS (Super 35mm format) sensor. This means that the FX30 is able to offer 4k recording and output. The FX30 can boast a wide range of features such as custom LUTs, Flexibe ISO, S-Cinetone, real time eye AF and 5 axis image stabilization. Many people will associate these kinds of features and tech with the more expensive B cameras from a few years before and show that the FX30 packs a lot of value.
The FX30 records on two types of cards, CFexpress Type A or SDXC/SDHC via two memory slots and can record up to 4K at 120p. The release date for the FX30 is late October and will sell for £2100 in a body only or for £2500 as part of an XLR handle package. You can purchase the FX30 from Sony and other retailers.
