    Sony have suprised many, including me, with yet another new camera release, but just how new is the FX3? In this video I will be reviewing it but also looking in detail at asking the question, what exactly is a cinema camera? Has the term become meangingless or are there specific features it should have to "qualify"?

I can tell you’re a perfectionist so hopefully you won’t take this the wrong way. I think the music needs to be turned down as much as 50%, maybe more (sometimes). It’s not just you though. I notice it in a lot of other YouTube videos. I find myself straining to hear what you’re saying or getting distracted. The video is superb otherwise. You’re in a league of very few. I can only imagine how much work went into the whole thing. Ok that’s all. Now I’m heading over to the subscribe button and then your A7Siii video. 👍🏻

Great job on the video Philip. I bought the FX3 over the A7siii simply for the ergonomics of the controls/buttons as well as for the XLR inputs on top because most of my work is in the documentary/reality formats for broadcast and I felt the XLRS would allow me to use it as an in car cam with lectrosonic lav mics going right to the camera. Generally we use FS7 and FX9s on shoots but occasionally we will still utilize FS5ii cams, which is what the FX3 was replacing for our purposes.

I see things are divided with the EVF. I am still recording on A mounts (A99 ii) and have never used the EVF for video, only for stills shooting. I now want to get a more dedicated camera for film / video - IMHO the FX3 is probably what I will choose. I do event videos and indie films (cinema). For events, having the flat top for a gimbal is fantastic. For cinema, having the XLR to accept both a feed from my field recorder as well as scratch/slate audio from a mounted shotgun is ideal.

@Asaf Blasberg Videographer I got it to overheat but doing unrealistic things. Also it’s NOT a cinema camera! It’s a video camera! I use my a7siii all the time and it doesn’t have a fan and in 9 months of using it it’s never once overheated.

I ask myself time and time again, why oh why, camera reviewers waste their time and effort in making videos on regurgitated products with useless minor differences. Can't you see beyond the reptilian mindset that we live in a conveyor belt system: 'Let's keep making pollution for the sake of continuos profit making'. Have a rest people and just wait for a true game changer worth your time and intellectual prowess. The Samsung NX1 of late 2014 with 4K 8 bit 4.2.0: You'll be shocked what I can do with this jewel.

May I ask why you chose the A1 over the A7SIII for filming this? I'm trying to decide between the two and wondering if realistically the 32000iso video on the A1 will ever really be an issue compared to the A7Siii's 102400iso for city, landscape and outdoor night videos? Leaning towards A1 minus 32000ISO video limit and the tilt rather than articulating screen.

@Alex Dublin These are questions only you can answer knowing the situations you shoot in. It's not a low light beast obviously but its usable up to the max. Those audio solutions are SOOOO different. Like asking if you should get a gimbal or a tripod.

@Philip Bloom And realistically 32000 ISO a non-issue for night city, outdoor and landscape videos/shots? Which would you choose between the ECM-B1M and XLR-K3M? Not sure if you have had a chance to use those two? Was leaning towards B1M though K3M allows for 2 mics for stereo or 4 channel audio?

So, Master Bloom, I know it's a bit late for this, but I'm depending on you to be willing to answer a few questions about the a7sIII NO ONE cares to discuss on youtube. 1. How good is the peaking? (It was, IMO, terrible in the A7III). 2.How good is the stabilization with 3rd party lenses---like Canon FDs? (For me it doesn't have to be GH5 good---just decent). 3. When shooting MF can you start recording, move the focus box, punch in, and perform a focus pull? (You can do these things on the Fuji X-H1 and X-T4. You can't do that on other "video oriented" models, like Panasonic.) Enquiring minds want to know---at least, this enquiring mind does.

@Philip Bloom Hey Phil, I use the LCD screen on sunny weather or I use my phone as a monitor via DJI's Raveneye (in some cases I use an external monitor when I have a bigger setup or I'm livestreaming with the ATEM mini). I like the flexible exposure mode as it enables me to use the top buttons to easily and quickly toggle ISO, Aperture and Shutter between manual and auto. For instance, if there is a situation where I need a specific aperture setting, I can just quickly hit the aperture button to switch it to manual (effectively putting me in shutter priority with auto ISO), and then I can toggle it off (effectively putting me in manual with auto ISO) without having to switch the mode dial. I can do this without even stopping the recording and I generally I find this my favorite mode to shoot in.

why is flexible "incredible"? Amazing you never use the EVF. SURELY you use some other form of monitoring device as that LCD is simply not good enough, especially outdoors...its also tiny. An EVF gives you a 50" screen in your eye.

Catalyst Stabilization: I don't know if someone else postet it already, but with the latest version of Catlyst Browse (2020.1.0.595) I can now properly stabilize all footage from my a7s3 - except with Standard Stabilization ON with OIS Lens (E.g. 24-105mm F4) . What works now is footage with: Standard Sensor Stabilization | Active Stabilization | Stabilization OFF. At first you could only stabilize properly with Catalyst Browse, when the Stabilizer was OFF.

So my first impression walking with my a7s3 on a shoulder rig was that I can stabilize the footage smoother with Catalyst if I turned standard steady shot ON instead of steady shot OFF. But that was only a first quick test. And of course it depends on what style you need. But I will do an in depth test tomorrow. And I hope I don't tell crap :-)

@Philip Bloom Yes, I tried it. It works fine with everything except optical stabilized lenses. Than Catalyst say, that he does not have enough data. So it cannot analyse the optical stabilization system. But the sensor data. So it works for example with my Sony 24-70 f2.8 with Standard Stbilization ON. So we now have more more to play. I did not tried it very hard, I found it out by accident. So I cannot say yet how much better it is in which situations. (And sorry for my bad English:-)

@Philip Bloom Sony will never make a cheap high-quality movie camera, because it is not profitable for them. This is marketing. Technically, I'm sure Sony can do anything. So this is not a biased attitude. These are repeatedly unjustified expectations. So I paid one last time, and bought a RED KOMODO that at least has color in it. After all, this is what we buy cameras for. And you endlessly discuss more and more new Sony cameras while marketers think about what else to release a camera, so that you do not understand what the catch is, and pay again. I do not know if there is such a proverb in English, in Russia they say: "A miser pays twice." Apparently, the guys from Sony also know this proverb.

A bit of a nit-pick, but I believe that the 4K120 mode in FX3/A7S3 is 1:1 because of sensor clocking constraints, not processor power. This is supported by the fact that the measured rolling shutter internal for the A7S3's oversampled mode is greater than 1/120 sec, meaning that it simply can't clock the full sensor 120 times/sec.

Vor Monat
Patrick Chase
Patrick Chase

@Philip Bloom The rolling shutter interval for the full-frame is 8.7 msec, which is greater than 1/120 sec. As someone who did sensor and ISP architecture for many years I know that that is the only fact that matters here. There may also be a processor constraint at play, but it's quite certain that the sensor is limiting them to

I'd love all mirrorless EVFs to be modular. The being able to move or remove the tilt screens would also be a neat feature.

Careful. You might get demonitized. Claude-Michel Schönberg is going to claim copyright infringement for your use of Puccini's Humming Chorus. Ok, maybe I'm still bitter about him ripping it off.....

@Philip Bloom I have that 28-135 and 18-105 zoom lens with sony alpha a7III , a7sIII, fs5 camera. I also have multiple lenses from sony like 24-70, 70-200, 50mm, 18-200, Tamron 28-200. I loved everything about A7sIII except that it don't have zoom rocker like fs5 and we need it very much during shooting. I normally use 18-105 lens with a7sIII due to our nature

@Philip Bloom Forgot to mention. we have FS5 with 18 - 105 and 28 -135 power zoom. we also have sony A7sIII with other lenses mentioned before. I just want to replace FS5 with full frame camera. I love everything abt fs5II except it is not full frame camera like A7 and FX series.

@Krish Upreti that was a a slow reply! If you think that zoom rocker will work with them then am afraid you didn’t pay enough attention in my review. There are just two lenses it works with, the 28-135mm F4 Sony and the new 15-35mm F2.8 C. They HAVE to be Somy electronic servo lenses, not mechanical zooms like yours.

​@Philip Bloom Thank you for your reply. I am asking because I am a fan of your work and I regard you as a (filmmaking) mentor and a trendsetter. In this scene your creative lighting decision made me feel a bit unsettled. I was wondering if it is just me or is this going to be the new trend for 3 point lighting and should I get used to it? It looks quite different than the usual three-point lighting (you teach in your course). Every art form evokes an emotion (according to how it is shaped and coloured) and I consider you an expert in working with details. This partially hidden face lighting is usually used to portray villains 😊, so I wondered what motivated you to use this lighting technique. The background lighting looks wonderful, including the rotating cameras 😊. So in short, I highly value your creative decisions, and I was just looking into some insight, to learn.

Why are you asking about my creative decisions? It’s also very much an exaggeration your comment. You can clearly see my face. The back light adds some edge and slight fill. It was the look I chose.

Great review. Personally, I'm torn. I am currently shooting with an A7iii and A7rii because I was doing photo and video. More recently, I've moved from photo into more video and shoot a lot of outdoor weddings in Texas. Because of the summer heat, I have had so many issues of overheating at 4K during ceremonies. To me the added fan will be a huge bonus. And while I record to the Atomos V, I don't use the audio off my camera so the handle would be useless.

Thank you for posting.. now that I just moved up from 8 bit 420/422 super 35 camera system to BMPCC4K BRAW (liking the new grading capabilities inside of Davinci Resolve), looks like Sony seriously upped it’s game in the last 12 months. For some night projects I have in mind with practical city night lights, it looks like Sony would be the obvious choice... Do you like to grade raw/BRAW video or do you prefer quicker turn around with a C-Log/S-Log workflow? Anyway I’m trying to balance good enough gear at low price to do projects that interest me that have little income later when done.... (hopefully break even at some point). These new Sony cameras interest me for the first time in 20+ years. Maybe it’s time to look at Sony again. I suppose I have had my head in the sand in my own world for long enough... Anyway brave new world compared to Sony’s from late 90’s... :) (Different generation... I remember when all cameras where huge bulky and huge batteries... and they recorded to a 2nd unit to VHS or Beta with even more batteries.... Each unit was 10-20 lbs each. Needed heavy duty tripods to to hold up the gear and the recording unit on the ground.. forget about being mobile. )

@Ronaldo 9 Thank you. I rarely if ever do comparisons between different cameras these days as it opens up a can of worms and becomes really long and complicated to make.

No, plus I hate the term cinema camera as i state. Check out my best cameras of 2020 video. It’s a good camera but it’s S35, has an awkward form factor, frustrating codecs, mediocre low light personable and so so AF. If you want a powerful video camera then it’s the FX6. It does everything so well

Hey Philip, thanks for the review. I've owned the A7S3 since it came out and love the camera but something that nobody has addressed, including Sony is pattern noise. I am a Sony Pro user and reported this the first time I saw it. In this case it was the windings on guitar strings which caused a moire. Sony accepted my files but never got back to me.This weekend I had a studio shoot in a sound stage and the main actor had a linen shirt on with a fine thread pattern. The entire shirt has a moire across it. It's not horrible but it's there. We like to punch in on the 4K to HD for close ups and it's very visible at that point. I'm going to bring this up with Sony again. I run my sharpness -4 most of the time, but this image is still very crisp.

@Philip Bloom Hey Philip, I hope you received my files. I’ll add another one to that folder link I forwarded, but won’t likely get to this till Monday. I was shooting a commercial Saturday using my new A1 in a sever room that had metal mesh doors for ventilation. The moire was so bad we had to remove all the doors. I wish I just had another camera with me. I’ve never seen moire on a GH5, for instance. Anyway, please confirm you received that original link sent to your email.

@Jack Tunnicliffe It may look a little soft that's because you have almost no in camera sharpening happing whereas you other cameras probably still do. You just add it in post that's all, that way you have full control. On my FX6 etc I can properly turn off sharpening as well as noise reduction, both things I wish the FX3 could do.

I'm still hoping for a full 3:2 sensor readout. Perfect for action sports filming with wide lenses and fisheyes. The top/bottom crop makes getting your subject in the frame far more tricky when filming close to exploit perspective.

Nothing like a evf for hand held. It is the greatest advantage introduced by the mirroless cameras after the DSLR revolution for video production.
