Sony may soon release the FX3, a cinema camera version of the full-frame a7S III mirrorless camera, as the Sony FX3 announcement is scheduled to happen on February 23rd, just before the CP+ 2021 (February 25-28).
The Sony FX3 cinema camera will feature a 12 megapixel sensor and shoot 4K 120 FPS video. It is expected to have a price tag of 3795 Euros in Europe and $4000 in the US. When we look at the leaked FX3 images, the three standard tripod screws on the top and the large record button shows that the FX3 is designed to easily attach accessories like screens and microphones that video shooters need.
We can easily say that the FX3 will be by far the smallest Cinema Line camera owned by Sony.
Sony FX3 has similar features to A7S III
The upcoming Sony FX3 E-mount cinema camera will be officially announced on February 23, 2021. It seems that the Sony FX3 is a Sony a7S III in a square boxy design and features still capabilities. The FX3 is claimed to have features similar to the A7S III, including 4K/120 FPS video, dual CFexpress card slots, in-body stabilization and still photography mode.
However, the cinema camera, which does not have a middle bump in its body, is more like the A7C, although it has a larger handle. It is also believed that the camera, which appears to have a pop-up screen, does not have the ND filter found in other Sony Cinema Line cameras.

Sony FX3 video
The Sony FX3 will be no different from Canon’s C70, the first cinema camera with RF mount. Because it is emphasized that both cameras are video-specific cameras with mirrorless form factors. Finally, the FX3 is claimed to have a full frame instead of a super 35 (APS-C) sensor and will be significantly cheaper and smaller. Stay tuned with us for more information.
