The Sony PXW-FS5 is a compact Super 35mm camcorder. This model rounds out Sony’s line of 4K professional cameras, filling an important niche between cameras like Sony’s PXW-FS7 and the NEX-FS700, or complementing Sony’s consumer a7R II and a7S II models.

The PXW-FS5 is ergonomically designed for versatile, hand-held shooting. The lightweight body has excellent weight balance, ensuring reliability and all-day comfort. It can be used in almost any location, even airborne when mounted on a drone. A variety of shooting angles is possible with the one-touch rotatable grip. All key controls are at the user’s fingertips, allowing for shooting flexibility and instant switching between low or high angle shooting.

Users can attach the 3.5-inch type LCD panel to different positions on the handle or the compact camera body, further supporting easy handheld operation and customized shooting.

Capable of 4K XAVC high-definition shooting, the camera’s Super35 Exmor™ CMOS sensor incorporates 11.6 million pixels and 8.3 million effective pixels. The high sensitivity and large size of the sensor delivers background defocus, increased low-light sensitivity and lower image noise. High-quality imagery is further ensured by high frame rate cache recording at 10-bit 4:2:2 Full HD and a high frame rate of up to 240 fps, in 8 second bursts, which makes 1/10 times Super Slow Motion possible without sacrificing bit depth or loss of image quality.

The PXW-FS5 is the first Super35 camcorder to feature built-in electronic variable ND filters, further expanding the depth of field representation by the large-format sensor and enabling flexible exposure control.

Integrating easily with other camera lenses, Sony’s a Mount System offers compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. The PXW-FS5’s E-mount can take virtually any lens, such as SLR lenses via an adapter, as well as Sony’s E-mount and A-mount lenses, ensuring the camera adapts to multiple environments. Sony’s a Mount System and its enhanced interfaces include 3G-SDI, HDMI output and dual SD card slots. Also equipped with Wi-Fi and a wired LAN terminal, the PXW-FS5 features enhanced network functions such as file transfer and streaming transmission.
