Stunning New Super 35 Look
FS5 II is Sony’s Super35 handheld camcorder with stunning 4K HDR and 120fps performance.
FS5 II’s all-new default look is specifically tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators with rich mid-range colours, alluring facial tones and a softer tonal look tuned with the same expertise as Sony’s world-leading VENICE digital cinematography camera. Straight out of the camera your content will look fresh and vivid, with subjects that really stand out, while still retaining plenty of latitude for post production refinement due to the high performance Super 35 ExmorTM sensor.
4K Super 35 Exmor (TM) sensor
FS5 II 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 Resolution11.6 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 SensorThe Super 35 size sensor offers ‘bokeh,’ the defocussed 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 LatitudeDeliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail.
Sony’s Exmor CMOS DesignProvides high-speed full-pixel read-out capability (without pixel binning) and sophisticated camera processing to ensure jaggies and moiré are minimized.
Record 10bit 4:2:2 in Full HDAt up 50Mbps internally.
Record 4K at 60**/50 fpsIn FS-RAW via a compatible third-party external recorder, such as ATOMOS Shogun and Convergent Design® Odyssey 7Q.
Making an Impact
Standing out from the crowd isn’t easy. FS5 II makes it easy with complete creative freedom: slow down time with phenomenal high frame rates up to 120fps in 4K and 240fps 2K/Full HD. Deliver spectacularly vivid HDR imagery with a choice of HLG and S-log2/3.
Grab and Shoot Mobility
Lightweight but robust, FS5 II is an endlessly adaptable camcorder for capturing breath-taking imagery anywhere the action takes you. Its modular design makes it easy to reconfigure for any application including mounting on a gimbal or drone.
High Frame Rate (HFR) Recording
FS5 II delivers stunning slow motion imagery, including four seconds of 120fps in 4K, continuous 240fps in 2K RAW when used in partnership with a compatible third-party external recorder, such as the ATOMOS Shogun and Convergent Design® Odyssey 7Q.
FS5 II also 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. 8-second cache recording on to SDXC card means no more mistimed shots leading to extra takes. It also lets you pick out footage at exactly the point that you want. FS5 II also records continuous 120fps internally in Full HD. Higher frame rates of 480 fps and 960 fps are possible at specific resolutions.
Spectacular HDR performance
Demand for HDR content is increasing and FS5 II offers you a choice of two powerful workflows. Whichever option you choose, a phenomenal fourteen stops of exposure latitude ensures the highest fidelity in capturing highlights and details within shadows.
- Instant HDR Workflow is all about speed. Shoot, edit and view content in Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) to deliver content quickly without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content.
- S-Log2/3 is the proven choice for premium applications where you wish to capture as much data as possible for the ultimate flexibility in grading.
α Mount Flexibility
Sony’s α mount system offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. FS5 II’s E-Mount can take cinema lenses and SLR lenses with a third-party adaptor, as well as Sony’s E-mount and A-mount lenses. So whether buying new lenses, or making use of lenses you’ve already purchased, FS5 II makes it easy. You can also purchase FS5II on its own (PXW-FS5M2) or with lens SELP18105G (PXW-FS5M2K).
Built-In Electronic Variable ND Filters
FS5 II features Sony’s unique 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 FS5 II can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. ND Filters can also be set to auto. This makes FS5 II 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.
New Look and Creative Picture Profiles
FS5 II features an all-new default look with beautiful highlights and subtle, well rendered facial tones for more emotive visuals where your subjects naturally stand out. FS5 II saves time in post production while still providing all the flexibility and creative latitude you require. There’s also an additional nine Picture Profiles, including ones customised for S-Log2, S-Log3 and a profile specifically tuned to provide vibrant, high contrast visuals for creators who desire a DSLR-style look. Each profile can be individually adjusted to suit your specific requirements and switched between in seconds.
Clear Image Zoom
This proprietary Sony technology significantly extends your ability to get closer to a remote scene while preserving image quality. Once you’ve zoomed in at maximum optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution technology can enlarge the image by additional 200% in Full HD and 150% in 4K. It is also compatible with fixed focal length lenses, so you can zoom into a scene while using a prime lens.
Lightweight, Modular and Robust
Despite its amazingly light 0.8kg body, FS5 II is more than tough enough for the rigours of real-world shooting. A magnesium chassis ensures high rigidity with ¼-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in an underwater housing. A detachable Smart Grip puts all of the FS5’s key functions are at your fingertips and is easily adjusted with the press of a single button.
However you want to shoot, the FS5 II adapts to fit your style. A high resolution 0.39-inch OLED viewfinder enables precise manual focus and is perfectly offset for right-eye or left-eye viewing. A 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.
Networked for High Mobility
- Live Stream from any event thanks to a choice of Wi-Fi or built-in wired LAN.
- Control FS5 II from your smartphone or tablet.
- Built-in NFC supports one-touch authentication possible with appropriate devices.
- Be first with breaking news thanks to a built-in wired LAN jack for high-speed FTP transfer of full resolution content.
- GPS Function automatically records GPS data.
Dual SD card slots with independent record controlTo extend recording time and workflow flexibility, FS5 II is equipped with two SDXC/SDHC memory card slots. ‘RELAY’ mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while ‘SIMUL’ mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). FS5 II’s three start/stop buttons on the grip, handle and camcorder body, can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in ‘SIMUL’ mode.
Multi-interface (MI) ShoeFS5 II takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light.
Dual XLR inputsFS5 II has two XLR connecters – so even if you remove the handle with its standard, easy-access XLR connector then a second on the body is still available, making it ideal for applications such as shooting in a confined space, such as a car interior, or when mounting on a gimbal.
Atomos invented the all-in-one monitor recorder category and now redefine it with the Shogun Inferno. It is the combination of the most advanced monitor technologies – 1500nit/10bit/HDR, the latest recording capability – 4Kp60 over Quad-SDI, along with playback & editing functionality that encourages on set collaboration. Shogun Inferno makes mastering a high resolution, high frame rate, high dynamic range workflow available to all filmmakers.
Simple OS, Sophisticated Shots
The Shogun Inferno is packed with an extensive suite of scopes, all 1-touch away and simple to use. The Video OS includes tools for focus, framing & exposure (Focus peaking, 2:1/1:1 zoom, Zebra, False Color, Safe Area, luma/RGB parade, vectorscope) along with a flexible 3D LUT implementation (use built-in LUTs or upload .cube files) and options for de-squeezing anamorphic content.
Shoot HDR with Log Cameras
AtomHDR image processing lets you shoot with the high brightness range of your camera’s Log profile while maintaining vibrant true-to-life colors. Conventional monitors lack this capability, displaying the brightness detail of Log but with a washed out image that makes judging exposure difficult. Be at the forefront of the HDR revolution by having a field monitor capable of resolving HDR in the field as you see it in Post Production and record the original Log image direct from the sensor for HDR grading in post production.
Continuous Power & Super Fast Charging
Inferno features our patented continuous power system - a hot swappable dual battery system that automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low. To support the dual battery system we include a blazingly fast battery charger, two 4-cell batteries and a D-Tap to DC coiled cable to ensure continuous power in the field is all but assured.
Monitor & Record XLR Audio
The Shogun Inferno has multiple audio options replacing the need for a separate audio recorder. Monitor up to 8ch of embedded HDMI audio, up to 12ch of SDI audio or use the included XLR breakout cable to connect with external microphones for balanced analogue audio with 48V phantom power.
Advanced Recording Capability
Outside of RAW and high frame rate 4:2:2 Apple ProRes / AVID DNxHR recording, the Shogun Inferno adds recording functionality not found in other recorders. Trigger start/stop recording over HDMI or SDI popular cameras, convert interlace to progressive signals on the fly with built-in 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown or use features like Pre-roll (continuous cache recording) and Time lapse to maximise your creativity.
Battle-Ready for the Field
Our built-in armor enhances protection & airflow whilst the raft of accessories (2 x NP series 4-cell batteries, fast battery charger, USB3 docking station, XLR breakout cable, Lanc cable, DC to D-Tap cable, 5 x Master Caddy cases, DC adapter & HDR sun hood) and the premium HPRC flight case ensures you're ready to hit the field immediately.
