Sony might soon launch the FX3, a cinema electronic camera version of the full-frame A7S III mirrorless camera, according to a number of leaks. It would include a 12-megapixel sensing unit, 4K 120 fps video and a rate tag of EUR3,795, which may fall under $4,000 based upon Sonys normal European vs. US costs. Images originate from prolific Japanese electronic camera leaker Nokoshita and Twitter user Joe Lawry, while the specifications were reported by YouTuber Gaston Shutters.
The FX3 allegedly brings similar specifications to the A7S III, including 4K/120 fps video (no 8K), double CFexpress card slots, in-body stabilization and a still photo mode. The body does not have a center bulge, so it more closely resembles the A7C, albeit with a bigger deal with and joystick (on top). It appears to have a flip-out screen however apparently does not have the ND filter discovered in other Sony Cinema Line electronic cameras.
The three standard tripod screws and large recording button on the leading program that the FX3 is created to take accessories like display screens, microphones, etc. required by video shooters. If the leakage is precise, which certainly appears to be the case, it would be Sonys tiniest Cinema Line electronic camera, without a doubt.
The FX3 is not unlike the C70, which is Canons first cinema camera with an RF install, because both are video-specific electronic cameras with mirrorless-like kind aspects. The FX3 would have a full-frame rather than a super-35 (APS-C) sensing unit and be substantially more affordable and smaller sized, from the looks of it. It will supposedly arrive around February 23rd for the CP+ camera show being held completely online this year.
