Sony Corporation of America Expands the Line of Large Sensor 4K Technologies with the PXW-FS5 compact Super 35mm camcorder

Sony Corporation of America expanding its line of large sensor 4K technologies with the PXW-FS5 compact Super 35mm camcorder. The new 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 new consumer a7R II and a7S II models. The PXW-FS5 is ergonomically designed for versatile, hand-held shooting. The lightweight body has 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 ExmorTM 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 through 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. A planned future firmware update will provide RAW output.
