Wayout Studios is the only photographic studio that rents the Sony FX3, the smallest of the Cinema Lines which, thanks to its maneuverability, Digital Cinema technology and the functions of the Alpha mirrorless cameras, allows you to create high-profile cinematic effects.
The machine is equipped with 5 threaded holes in which it is possible to conveniently connect various accessories, such as the supplied XLR handle that allows you to connect monitors, microphones and recorders, and there are also two XLR / TRS audio inputs.
Another feature is the advanced heat dissipation system, which allows the machine to be used for very long times without overheating problems.
Sony FX3 has the BIONZ XR image processor, which unleashes its power through the 12.1MP back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor.
We also find a wide dynamic range with more than 15 stops and standard ISO from 80 to 102,400 up to 409,600 for video shooting.
Video recordings up to 10 bit 4k 4: 2: 2 XAVCS, in HDMI 16 bit RAW output recording.
S-Cinetone / S-log3 / HLG.
The camera features 5-axis optical stabilization built into the camera, perfect for hand-held video recording using OIS-free optics, such as E-mount lenses.
In addition, with the Fast Hybrid AF mode it is possible to make the most of the 627 points of the phase detection system on the focal plane and with the Touch Tracking function just touch the subject on the monitor to activate AF and tracking that follows it throughout the entire shoot.
There is no shortage of Real-Time Eye AF and other tools for optimal focus.
Sony FX3 compatible lenses can be rented.
