4K Super 35 Exmor sensor
The FS5 is built around a high-sensitivity 4K Super35 "Exmor" CMOS Sensor that offers all the benefits of a large format sensor in combination with the exceptional image readout speeds required for 4K motion-picture shooting and Super Slow Motion. 4K resolution. 11.6 million total pixels and 8.8 million effective
pixels deliver 4K resolution. Even if you're delivering in HD, your recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see. Super 35 size sensor offers "bokeh," the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field, as well as excellent low-light sensitivity and an expansive field of view. 14 stops of exposure latitude deliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail. Exceptional sensitivity enables you to shoot well after sunset, without tons of lighting and grip. Sony's Exmor CMOS design provides high-speed full-pixel read- out capability (without pixel binning) and sophisticated camera processing to ensure jaggies and moiré are minimized.
240fps High Frame Rate (HFR) recording
The FS5 offers High Frame Rate (HFR) cache recording at Full HD 10bit 4:2:2 image quality and a frame rate of up to 240 fps. The 8-second cache recording means no more mistimed shots lead-ing to extra takes. It also lets you pick out footage at exactly the point that you want. It is also possible to record 120 fps with up to 16-second cache recording. Higher frame rates of 480 fps and 960 fps are also possible.
A look at the Sony FS5
Built-in Electronic Variable ND Filters
The FS5 is the world's first Super 35mm camcorder* with a built-in electronic variable Neutral Density (ND) filter, further expanding the depth of field capability of its large format sensor. Unlike conventional optical ND filters, the electronic ND filter on the FS5 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. This makes the FS5 ideal for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments - there's no need to change filters as lighting conditions change and variable control makes it easy to keep depth of field under control. *Sony market research, September 2015.
Grab and Shoot with handheld super 35
A handheld camera should be able to get you into tight places. To work in your lap. To move with the talent. To shoot high and low angles with equal agility. And a handheld camera should function beautifully against your chest comfortably steadied by your right hand with all the controls at your fingertips. Sony's extraordinary PXW-FS5 does all of this, and more.
Colour, contrast and the XAVC codec
When quality is everything, make the most of the FS5's Super 35 Exmor sensor and shoot 100Mbps 4K (3840 x 2160) using Sony's advanced XAVC (Long GOP) recording system. In the future, there will even be the option to record RAW externally (details to be announced). If you need a fast turnaround, switch to Full-HD (1920x1080)- recording at up to 60p XAVC 10bit 4:2:2 50Mbps. The FS5 has the flexibility to suit how you need to work, today and tomorrow.
The FS5 is a radical re-imagining of the FS7 for unsurpassedon the go showoting in the most demanding of conditions. With a body-only weight less than half the FS7 at 0.84kg, you can shoot almost anywhere. Handheld operation is simply exceptional as the superbly balanced chassis is easily configured to shoot from high to low angles thanks to a flexible, rotatable grip and a LCD viewfinder that can be mounted in no less than nine locations.
Modular design for easy integration
The FS5 is designed to be taken apart quickly and easily, with no need for custom tools. There are also ¼-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in a underwater housing. For tripod mounting, there's both 1/4 and 3/8 inch screw hole on the bottom. You can
even add the FS7's rosette mount* to securely attach an FS7 arm and compatible third-party accessories.
* Rosette mount component available from Sony service centres.
All of the FS5's key functions are put at your fingertips - from an electronic zoom lever to assignable dials and responsive joystick. The smart grip is located as close as possible to the centre of gravity of the camera to avoid rolling, while a grip belt makes your hold completely secure. To adjust the smart grip's angle, you only need to press one button and turn. Detaching the grip is made fast and simple with a bayonet connection.
However you want to shoot, the FS5 adapts to fit your style. Its 3.5-inch LCD screen can be attached in no less than nine different locations, three on top of the handle and another six on top of the body. And once attached, the positioning of the screen can be freely adjusted - for example either beside the camera body or directly along the axis of the lens.
