4K Super35 Exmor Sensor

The FS5 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, Super Slow Motion and 4K resolution. 4K resolution delivers - 11.6 million pixels and 8.8 million effective pixels. Even if you’re delivering in H D, your recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see.

Super35 size sensor offers "bokeh," the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field, as well as excellent low-light sensitivity and an expansive field of view. Fourteen (14) stops of exposure latitude deliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail. Exceptional sensitivity enables you to shoot well after sunset, without tons of lighting and grip. Sony’s Exmor CMOS design provides high-speed full-pixel read-out capability (without pixel binning) and sophisticated camera processing to help ensure jaggies and moiré are minimized.

High Frame Rate (HFR) Recording

The FS5 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. The 8-second cache recording means no more missed shots leading to extra takes. It takes and also lets you pick out footage at exactly the point that you want. Recording 120 fps with up to 16-second cache recording, and higher frame rates of 480 fps and 960 fps are also possible.

Ultimate Mobility

The FS5 is a radical re-imagining of the FS7 for unsurpassed on the go shooting in the most demanding of conditions. With a body-only weight less than half the FS7 at approximately 1 lb 13.2 oz, you can shoot almost anywhere. Handheld operation is simply exceptional as the superbly balanced chassis is easily configured to shoot from high to low angles thanks to a flexible, rotatable grip and a LCD viewfinder that can be mounted in up to nine locations.

Modular Design for Easy Integration

The FS5 is designed to be taken apart quickly and easily, with no need for custom tools. There are also ¼-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in a underwater housing. For tripod mounting, there are both 1/4 and 3/8-inch screw holes on the bottom. You can even add the FS7’s rosette mount* to securely attach an FS7 arm and compatible third-party accessories (sold separately). * Rosette mount component available from Sony's service centers.

Rotatable Grip

All of the FS5’s key functions are put at your fingertips - from an electronic zoom lever to assignable dials and responsive joystick. The smart grip is located as close as possible to the center 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.

Versatile Monitoring

However you want to shoot, the FS5 adapts to fit your style. Its 3.5-inch* LCD screen can be attached in up to 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. *Viewable area measured diagonally.

α Mount Flexibility

Sony’s α mount system offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. The FS5’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, the FS5 makes it easy. (Optional lenses sold separately.)

Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe

The FS5 takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible accessories from Sony. For example, you can connect and control Sony's wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light. (Accessories sold separately. HVL-LBPC light does not draw power from FS5.)

Networked for High Mobility

Live stream from any event thanks to a choice of Wi-Fi® or built-in wired LAN. Control FS5 from your smartphone or tablet. Built-in NFC supports one-touch authentication is possible with compatible devices. Be first with breaking news, thanks to a built-in wired LAN jack for high-speed FTP transfer of full resolution content.

 

The Sony SELP18105G 18-105mm E PZ f/4 E-Mount Zoom Lens is the first Sony G Series Lens created specifically for E-mount cameras, achieving outstanding resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range thanks to an advanced optical design incorporating two ED glass elements and three aspherical elements. From wide angle to medium telephoto, this power zoom lens covers approximately a 6x zoom range with a constant F4 aperture.

Features:

  • Image Stabilization: Optical SteadyShot
  • Focus System: Power Zoom
  • Filter Diameter: 72mm

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass

As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration.

Aspherical Lens Elements

Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped “aspherical” elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight. Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements are an evolved variant, featuring an extremely high thickness ratio between the center and periphery. AA elements are exceedingly difficult to produce, relying on the most advanced molding technology to consistently and precisely achieve the required shape and surface accuracy, resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality.

Lens-Based Optical Image Stabilization

Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur. The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high-end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high-quality movies as well as stills.

Internal Focusing

Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter.

The 5" SmallHD 502 Full HD Field Monitor features a 1920 x 1080p (Full HD) LCD display. The 502’s LCD display is able to produce 85% NTSC Color Gamut (greater than the REC. 709 color standard), rivaling the color capabilities of OLED technology.

The 502 makes signal processing simple. Using a custom-built processing engine, the 5" field monitor will accept nearly any resolution and frame rate from nearly any camera. Building upon the 3D LUT functionality of the DP7-PRO Series, the 502 will allow shooters to apply an even higher resolution and more accurate 3D LUT, in real-time.

Its size, weight and resolution make it an attractive option for DSLR shooters looking to attach it straight to the camera, while its robust mounting options and durability allow the display to be used on a gimbal or shoulder rig without adding bulk.

The joystick on the 502 on-camera monitor allows shooters to experience the flexibility of a touch screen display without all the downsides. An integrated joystick prevents smudge marks on the screen, camera jiggle during operation and reduces the overall cost of the device significantly. Flexibility and ease-of-use are taken to the next level with the 502’s bluetooth remote. By mapping the physical interface and functionality of the 502’s joystick to a bluetooth remote, shooters will be able to interface with the monitor without physically touching the monitor.

 

This Cameo Swivel Mount for On-Board Monitors enables a monitor to be mounted on top of your camera with tilt and swivel positioning. Reversing the orientation allows mounting to side of camera. Both ends supplied with captive 1/4"-20 screws. A third, shorter screw is supplied for shallow mounting threads.
