Sony PXW-FS5 handheld Super 35 4K camera


Flexible controlsAll of the FS5’s key functions are put at your fingertips - from an electronic zoom lever to assignable dials and responsive joystick. Direct Menu options display onscreen, so shooting parameters can be changed quickly and conveniently without taking your eyes off the action. The smart grip is located as close as possible to the center of gravity of the camera to avoid rolling, while a grip belt makes your hold completely secure. To adjust the smart grip’s angle, you only need to press one button and turn. Detaching the grip is made fast and simple with a bayonet connection.
Versatile monitoringHowever you want to shoot, the FS5 adapts to fit your style. Its 3.5-inch* LCD screen can be attached in no less than nine different locations, three on top of the handle and another six on top of the body. And once attached, the positioning of the screen can be freely adjusted – for example either beside the camera body or directly along the axis of the lens. *Viewable area measured diagonally.
Lightweight but robustDespite its amazingly light 1lb 13.2oz body, the FS5 is more than tough enough for the rigors of real-world shooting. The main frame is magnesium, for high rigidity and light weight. Cooling is an urgent requirement in a 4K camera, all the more so in a camera as compact as the FS5. An advanced cooling system design features a vertical heat sink placed directly beside the image sensor and main circuit board to maximize its effectiveness. An air duct cools the heat sink while isolating the electrical components from exposure to dust.
Modular design for easy integrationThe FS5 is designed to be taken apart quickly and easily, with no need for custom tools. There are also ¼-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in a underwater housing. For tripod mounting, there’s a 3/8-inch screw hole on the bottom. You can even add the FS7’s rosette mount* to securely attach an FS7 arm and compatible third-party accessories.* Rosette mount component available from Sony's service centers.
Networked for high mobilityLive stream from any event thanks to a choice of wireless LAN or built-in Ethernet. Control a multi-camera shoot from your smartphone or tablet. Built-in NFC supports one-touch authentication possible with appropriate devices. Be first with breaking news thanks to a built-in Ethernet jack for high-speed FTP transfer of full resolution content.
4K Super 35 Exmor® sensorThe FS5 is built around a high-sensitivity 4K Super35 Exmor CMOS Sensor that offers all the benefits of a large format sensor in combination with the exceptional image readout speeds required for 4K motion-picture shooting and Super Slow Motion. 4K resolution. 11.6 million total pixels and 8.8 million effective pixels deliver full 4K resolution. Even if you’re delivering in HD, your recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see. Super35 size sensor offers "bokeh," the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field, as well as excellent low-light sensitivity and an expansive field of view. Fourteen (14) stops of exposure latitude deliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail. Exceptional sensitivity enables you to shoot well after sunset, without tons of lighting and grip. Sony’s Exmor CMOS design provides high-speed full-pixel read- out capability (without pixel binning) and sophisticated camera processing to ensure jaggies and moiré are minimized.
High Frame Rate (HFR) recordingThe FS5 offers High Frame Rate (HFR) cache recording at Full HD 10bit 4:2:2 image quality and a frame rate of up to 240 fps. The 8-second cache recording means no more missed shots leading to extra takes. It also lets you pick out footage at exactly the point that you want. It is also possible to record 120 fps with up to 16-second cache recording. Higher frame rates of 480 fps and 960 fps are also possible at reduced quality.
Built-in Electronic Variable ND FiltersThe FS5 is the world's first Super 35mm camcorder* with a built-in variable Neutral Density (ND) filter, further expanding the depth of field capability of its large format sensor. Unlike conventional optical ND filters, the electronic ND filter on the FS5 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. This makes the FS5 ideal for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments - there’s no need to change filters as lighting conditions change and variable control makes it easy to keep depth of field under control. *Sony's market research, September 2015.
Clear Image ZoomThis proprietary Sony technology significantly extends your ability to get closer to a remote scene while preserving image quality. Once you’ve zoomed in at maximum optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution Technology can enlarge the image by additional 200%. It is also compatible with fixed focal length lenses, so you can zoom into a scene while using a Prime lens.
Center Scan ModeTo support traditional Super 16mm cinema lenses, the FS5 has a Center Scan Mode which selectively outputs 2160x1080 from the sensor’s center. This gives the FS5 all the characteristics of a Super 16mm film camera and avoids any vignetting. It also offers a 2X Digital Extender zoom – effectively doubling your range for HD content.
Accurate OLED viewfinderA high quality 0.39-inch OLED viewfinder is perfectly offset for right-eye or left-eye viewing OLED’s superb accuracy, high contrast and high resolution (1,440K dot) enables precise manual focus and eliminates any color-breaking phenomenon.
Dual media slots with independent record controlTo extend recording time and workflow flexibility, the FS5 is equipped with two memory card slots. “RELAY” mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while “SIMUL” mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). The FS5’s two Start/Stop buttons, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in “SIMUL” mode.
Multi-Interface (MI) ShoeThe FS5 takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible accessories from Sony. For example, you can connect and control Sony's wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light.* Accessories sold separately. HVL-LBPC light does not draw power from FS5.
Dual XLR inputsThe FS5 has two XLR connecters – so even if you remove the handle with its standard, easy-access XLR connector then a second on the body is still available, making it ideal for applications such as shooting in a confined space, such as a car interior, or when mounting on a gimbal.
