The FX3 remains one of the most popular newer cameras you will often encounter on set because of its the form factor, ease of use, price, and solid auto-focus. To date, I’ve seen several FX3s working as the B-cam on interviews and talking-head videos where the primary camera op will shoot on the FX6 or FX9 and use the FX3 and its auto-focus for cutaway shots. The FX3 is also a solid choice for gimble work because it’s lightweight and makes it easy for those quick pick-up shots or run-and-gun types of scenarios.
The FX3 was until recently the smallest and cheapest option for the Sony cinematic camera lineup, offering its 12.1MP full-frame sensor with built-in E-mount that can shoot 4k/60p and slo-mo at 4k/120p. Many people then compared the FX3 to the A7S III, which had an impressive feature set for a mirrorless camera.
Though the A7S III is cheaper and designed with photography in mind as well as clean, crisp video, the FX3 solely focuses on cinematic-grade video quality with its rugged slight build and design and features such as 15-stop dynamic range and 16-bit raw output via HDMI port aimed towards professional filmmakers who need these.
Even though the FX30 has only recently been announced and is soon to be released, the FX3 is still a solid full-frame option for both size and cinematic video quality options.
