Hire Sony ILME-FX3.

The brand new “Sony Alpha FX3 ILME-FX3” or FX3 as we’ll refer to it is Sony’s most compact “Cinema Line” camera. It’s well designed for solo-shooting, perfect on a gimble or compact rig. Think all the codecs/framerates/inputs you’d get on an FX6 (and even an FX9) and they’re all here. Well mostly. The little “niggles” from shooting on an A7s are thankfully gone with the FX3. With dedicated buttons for aperture, iris, white balance, recording, etc it makes it far quicker and initiative to operate. In built tally lights and fantastic autofocus when paired with Sony G-Master lenses this tiny camera is a filming powerhouse. The improved battery life over the A7s range also makes shoot with this little camera far more practical, and if you are setting up in an studio then our included dummy battery/power supply means you’ll never have to worry about power running out. Where this camera really shines is on a gimble like our Ronin RS2 and Tilta Float system, amazingly high quality, 4k, slowmo without breaking the bank, or you back in the process! With the internal cooling system the FX3 can extend the shooting time and will be able to cover a wider range of shooting situations. It records outstanding 4K full frame quality at up to 120p with minimal rolling shutter, excellent low light capabilities (up to 409,800 ISO) and a wide dynamic range thanks to its 10.2 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and new Bionz XR processor. The Sony FX3 also provides more freedom for shooting videos with a fast and accurate Autofocus technology including Real-time Eye Autofocus, Real-time touch tracking and customisable autofocus tracking sensitivity. It also includes a 5axis inbody stabilisation with Active Mode, which makes it ideal for handheld shots.
