Sony’s Super 35 mm handheld camcorder now adds 4K 120fps RAW output and new colour science to capture lifelike natural images 

Dubai, UAE. 11th April 2018:   Sony has today expanded its Large Format Sensor category with the launch of the new XDCAM handheld camcorder FS5 II (Body:PXW-FS5M2, Lens Kit: PXW-FS5M2K). Complete with stunning 4K*¹ HDR and 120fps*² performance and RAW capabilities, the new Super 35 mm camcorder marries outstanding image quality with an ergonomic modular frame, offering content creators ultimate creative flexibility.  

In addition to S-Log 2/3, the FS5 II offers Instant HDR Workflow*³ to produce HDR content for quick post-production without the need of grading*⁴. 
The FS5 II is a great E-mount camcorder for interchangeable lens camera users, offering boundless creative options for web commercial, music video production, dramas, corporate & event videos and documentaries.

Ultimate handheld creative camcorder

Tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators, the FS5 II features an all-new look with a refined picture tone to capture natural highlights, subtle, alluring and well rendered facial tones and a softer tonal look emphasizing portrayal of a person.  Using the accumulated expertise of Sony’s digital cinematography camera VENICE, it promises a fresh and vivid look while still retaining plenty of creative options in post-production thanks to its high performance 4K Super 35 Exmor® CMOS sensor.

Claus Pfeifer, Head of Technical Sales – Media Solutions, Sony Professional Solutions Europe explains: “When Sony develops new camera technologies we gather feedback from all ends of the production chain – from DOPs through to post production around the workflow. This camera was no exception. We’ve evolved and developed our hugely popular FS5 with default shooting capabilities and the FS5II is now a powerful addition to the Large Format Sensor line-up which promises even more flexibility and creative choices.” 

High Frame Rate shooting including 4K*¹ 120fps*² RAW output and HDR features

The FS5 II builds on Sony’s heritage for image quality, delivering stunning High Frame rate shots supporting four seconds of 120fps*² in 4K*¹ and continuous 240fps*⁵ in 2K*⁶ RAW output when used in partnership with a compatible external recorder.  Of course, continuous 4K 60fps*⁷ RAW output is fully supported.  

On the other hand, on to an internal SD card, the camcorder also offers High Frame Rate (HFR) recording at Full HD 10bit 4:2:2 image quality and a frame rate of up to 240 fps of 8-second cache recording, allowing up to 10 x slow motion⁸.  Continuous recording of 120fps in Full HD is also supported.
With an Instant HDR Workflow*³ users can now reduce time in post-production and produce high-quality HDR content quickly without the need of grading. Whilst for productions of longer lead-times, S-Log 2/3 allows the HDR image to be fine-tuned via colour grading.

Grab and Shoot Capabilities

Lightweight but robust, theFS5 II’s well balanced 0.8kg body, adaptability and creative features make it a perfect fit for movie shooting, whilst its modular design makes it easy to reconfigure for any application including mounting on a gimbal or drone. Sony’s unique Electronic Variable ND filter with Auto ND function covers a wide range of exposure adjustment as well as creating a wide range of shallow Depth of Field control.

Now with ten Picture Profile settings the FS5 II allows users to instantly and easily configure the camera for different shooting styles, such as cinematic content creation and online content. 

The FS5 II will begin shipping in May.
