Sony FX30 Cinema APS-c Camera with 26MP and 16-bit RAW recording

Sony has announced the FX30, a compact digital cinema camera that shares the same body design as the older FX3, but upgrades from full-frame to an all-new back-illuminated 26MP APS-C sensor that captures Super35 4K video.

The new Sony FX30 sits below the FX3 in Sony’s E-mount cinema camera lineup and is designed to bridge the gap between what budding creators want and what’s being released for the professional market.

Compared to the Sony FX3 (approx. $3,898 on Adorama | B&H | Amazon), which features a 4K direct-sampling full-frame sensor with ISO 409,600, the Sony FX30 instead uses a Super35 sensor with 6K sampling and ISO 32,000. 6K resolution.

The Sony FX30 digital cinema camera is already available to pre-order on and for $1,799.
