    Real-time Eye AF

    Real-time Eye AF to detect eye data and track the subject’s eye with unprecedented precision. The superior real-time data processing capability of the new BIONZ XR image processing engine ensures accurate, reliable detection even when faces are looking away at extreme angles.

    S-Cinetone for that expressive cinematic look

    FX3 allows users to easily create a cinematic look without post-production using S-Cinetone picture profile. Inspired by the color science of Sony VENICE camera, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to cinematic expression.

    To answer the increasing demand for RAW recording, the FX3 is capable of 16-bit RAW output up to 4K 60p to an external device via full-size HDMI Type A, for applications that demand the highest quality and post-production flexibility provided by RAW output.

    10-bit 4:2:2 HLG

    The FX3 provides HLG high-dynamic-range picture profile that supports the wide-gamut BT.2020 color space for true-to-life imagery with detailed shadows and highlights, with no need for color grading.

    Easy S-Log matching with professional camcorders
