Sony PXW-FS5 (Without Lens)
PXW-FS5 - Grab and Shoot with handheld Super 35
Lightweight but robust
Despite its amazingly light 0.8kg body, the FS5 is more than tough enough for the rigors of real-world shooting. The main frame is magnesium, for high rigidity and light weight. Cooling is an urgent requirement in a 4K camera, all the more so in a camera as compact as the FS5. An advanced cooling system design features a vertical heat sink placed directly beside the image sensor and main circuit board to maximise its effectiveness. An air duct cools the heat sink while isolating the electrical components from exposure to dust.
All of the FS5’s key functions are put at your fingertips - from an electronic zoom lever to assignable dials and responsive joystick. Direct Menu options display onscreen, so shooting parameters can be changed quickly and conveniently without taking your eyes off the action. The smart grip is located as close as possible to the centre of gravity of the camera to avoid rolling, while a grip belt makes your hold completely secure. To adjust the smart grip’s angle, you only need to press one button and turn. Detaching the grip is made fast and simple with a bayonet connection.
Built-in electronic Variable ND Filters
The FS5 is the world's first Super35mm camcorder* with a 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 the FS5 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. This makes the FS5 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.

However you want to shoot, the FS5 adapts to fit your style. Its 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.
