Sony PXW-FS5


Sony brings a lot of bang for your buck in this lightweight, handheld camera that is versatile for both traditional cinema needs, and lightweight docs-style shooting. With the internal RAW upgrade, it’s Super35 Exmor CMOS sensor is capable of going 4K at 3840 x 2160, but is still a viable option for doing 1920x1080. It offers 14 stops of dynamic range, and with it's capability to shoot up to 960 fps, it offers terrific super slow motion. Strip our kit down for lightweight run-and-gun style needs, or build it out fully for a complete cinema-style package.
