Shooting your first Hollywood film has never felt more accessible than now.
The Sony FX3 is an acclaimed cinema camera that packs a mean punch, offering all the features needed to create stunning video footage with professional cinematographers in mind. The camera body is publicly renowned for its Netflix-approved label, evermore validating its critical appraisal.
But what makes the FX3 so darn good and well-loved? Aside from its sensor feeling reminiscent of an authentic analog experience, you can capture stunning 4K visuals at rapid frame rates thanks to its precise autofocus and swift readout capabilities. The Slow and Quick (S&Q) mode offers complete control over the shooting frame rate, allowing you to create gorgeous motion sequences with up to 5x slow motion (when using 24p output).
There's no doubt that a small yet potent form factor has its merits, and Sony's FX3 embodies this concept to perfection. As a seasoned filmmaker who appreciates technological nuances, many of us long for a feature-heavy compact camera — particularly for gimbals, crash cams, or a trusty B-Cam. I fully believe the FX3 fulfills all these boxes and more.
