Sony FX3 is officially its smallest, cheapest cinema camera for pro filmmakers


The Sony FX3 has officially landed – and as expected, it’s the smallest, cheapest Sony cinema camera so far and an exciting alternative to the excellent Sony A7S III.

In fact, it’s fair to say that the FX3 is effectively a redesigned A7S III, with the two cameras sharing a lot of the same specs. Both are 12.1MP full-frame cameras that are compatible with Sony’s E-Mount lenses and can shoot 4K/60p video.

But the FX3 sits in Sony’s Cinema line, which means it’s specifically designed for pro filmmakers, rather than the hybrid shooters targeted by the Alpha-badged A7S III. According to Sony, the latter is targeted more at those who need to shoot a mix of high-quality stills and video, like wedding and concert photographers.

So how to the two cameras differ? The main physical differences are that the FX3 lacks the built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) seen on the A7S III, but gains some fan-assisted active cooling (for longer continuous shooting) and a bundled handle accessory.
