The FX30 captures stunning images with 6K oversampling and a true cinematic look. Its compact size lets you take it anywhere, and sophisticated AF and stabilization makes advanced filmmaking more accessible than ever. Sony’s new back-illuminated 20.1 megapixels APS-C Exmor R CMOS sensor (Super 35 format) achieves high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic latitude. 6K oversampling compresses a vast amount of information into 4K output. The FX30 includes S-Cinetone, the same color science that produces the highly regarded FX9 and FX6 color and skin tones. It’s easy to achieve a beautiful cinematic look without post-production grading. Cine EI offers wide latitude and the highest image quality. Cine EI Quick automatically switches the base ISO according to the selected Exposure Index. Flexible ISO provides the greatest flexibility for exposure settings. Up to 16 user LUTs can be imported into the camera via memory card. Custom LUTs can be applied to the LCD monitor and HDMI output for an accurate preview of the final image. LUTs can also be embedded in clips to facilitate post-production processing. The Dual Base ISO (ISO 800 and ISO 2500) allows you to maximize the dynamic range. A wide 14+ stop latitude makes it easier to shoot top-quality images in just about any shooting situation. The S-Log3 gamma curve has been designed for smooth gradations, and to achieve cinematic image quality. Both S-Log3 and S-Gamut3.Cine offers high-quality color reproduction over a wide latitude during post processing. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes. Real-time Tracking provides tracking thanks to unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms even when shooting at high 120p frame rates. Active Mode utilizes an in-body 5-axis sensor shifts image stabilizer and provides increased stabilization. A gyroscope sensor measures camera shake and compensates optically, making stable video possible. 10-bit 4:2:2 video can be recorded internally using Long GOP or All Intra compression. XAVC HS format recording, using the HEVC/H.265 codec, roughly doubles the compression efficiency. XAVC S-I 4K and XAVC S-I HD formats provide per-frame Intra compression. 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second. Smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery at QFHD resolution with autofocus. The ability to capture moving subjects in smooth slow motion opens up a whole new world of creative potential. 16-bit RAW output is available over HDMI connection to compatible external recorders. XAVC HS 4K, XAVC S 4K, or XAVC S-I 4K, and proxy, files are simultaneously captured in-camera. RAW video output is 4672 x 2628 [16:9] resolution. Creative Looks make it easy to create interesting moods. The Creative Look presets can be used as is or further customized using individual parameter settings. Users’ preferences and favorite settings can be registered as custom looks. AF Assist smoothly switches between auto and manual focus. Focus Map visualizes depth of field while shooting. Breathing Compensation provides a stable angle of view by minimizing the field-of-view shift that can occur with some lenses. For uninterrupted 4K 60p recording, the FX30 features an innovative heat dissipation structure, including a unique Sony Σ (sigma) shaped graphite-alloy heatsink. A complete internal redesign optimized the camera’s airflow and heatsink placement. The camera records five types of metadata: LUTs, image stabilization, focus breathing, camera rotation and shot marks. These can be useful when previewing and preparing to edit in Sony’s free Catalyst Browse or purchased Catalyst Prepare software. Low-bitrate HD proxy files can be recorded simultaneously in nearly all recording formats. The smaller proxy video files can be used for editing previews prior to final 4K editing, reducing computer load and enabling a faster workflow. The XLR handle unit provides two XLR audio inputs to facilitate high-quality audio recording. There is also a 3.5 mm stereo mini jack for 4-channel recording. The Multi-interface shoe can be used with compatible Sony microphones.
