Sony has announced new firmware updates for both the Sony FX3 and Sony FX30 cinema cameras. The new updates bring together what Sony describes as “unified operability and common workflow to the Cinema Line”. Sony FX3 firmware v3.0 and Sony FX30 firmware v2.0 both bring the same set of features to each camera, including some that have been highly requested.
First up, both cameras can now shoot true 24.00 fps in 4K DCI resolution using a new video format, XAVC S-I DCI 4K (17:9), allowing them to seamlessly slot into high-end workflows using Sony Venice cameras. Both cameras also see 1.3x and 2.0x anamorphic desqueeze options available. The FX3 also gains a notably missing feature that the FX30 also contained. Focus Breathing Compensation.
