The new FX30 is a 4K Super 35 compact cinema camera that offers many professional features of the Cinema Line, such as Dual Base ISO, Log shooting modes, and user-imported LUTs (Look Up Tables) at a price point that appeals to many aspiring filmmakers. In addition to introducing the new FX30, Sony announced two new CFexpress Type A Memory Cards – CEA-G320T and CEA-G640T. Both are large capacity cards that support high-speed performance with a maximum writing speed. "The new FX30 is a great fit for a wide range of filmmakers," said Yang Cheng, Vice President, Imaging Solutions, Sony Electronics Inc. "As part of our Cinema Line, it is an attractive addition for seamless integration into large productions. Additionally, by incorporating many professional features found in our flagship cinema cameras, it is a perfect camera for up-and-coming filmmakers that are working with tight budgets." Creating a Cinematic Look The FX30 offers next-generation filmmakers cinematic expression with the latest imaging systems. It features a new back-illuminated 20.1 megapixels APS-C Exmor R™ CMOS sensor (Super 35 format) with a dual base ISO (800/2500) to deliver high sensitivity, low noise, and 14+1 stops of latitude. The FX30 supports a variety of video recording codecs. It can shoot in high frame rates, including 4K at 120fps and full HD at 240fps2. The FX30 also features the ability to shoot 4K Super 35 (16:9) by oversampling from 6K at up to 60fps. Both 16:9 recording modes can shoot at 10-bit 4:2:2 while the HDMI Type-A port outputs 4K, 16-bit RAW3 for an external recorder4. Like the rest of the Cinema Line, the FX30 features Log shooting modes by enabling Cine El, Cine El Quick, and Flexible ISO modes for recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve, which allows more flexibility when color grading. All three modes allow video shooting while monitoring with an appropriate LUT to preview the final image. In addition, the FX30 includes a selection of built-in cinematic looks, such as Sony's S-Cinetone™, and can shoot single stills. The camera offers advanced image processing capabilities with the BIONZ XR processing engine for natural gradations and realistic color reproduction. Designed to Support Creators' Needs The FX30 features Sony’s fast and reliable still and video autofocus, with settings including: Real-time Eye AF (human, animal or bird5) Real-time Tracking Detailed AF settings AF Assist6 Creatives also have more control when using the Focus Map7, which makes it easy to visualize depth of field, and Breathing Compensation8 to offer a stable angle of view when focusing. The camera includes effective stabilization for run and gun shoots using Active Mode9 thanks to the optical in-body 5-axis image stabilization. The FX30 also includes time code sync10.

  7. Press release: TAMRON Announces Ultra-telephoto Zoom for FUJIFILM X-Mount 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057) Compact 750mm (full-frame equivalent) offers easy super telephoto shooting opportunities September 20, 2022, Commack, NY - Tamron announces the launch of the 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057), an ultra-telephoto zoom lens for FUJIFILM X-mount. The lens is will be on sale October 13, 2022 at $1499. However, due to the current global health crisis, the release date or product supply schedule could change. The 150-500mm F5-6.7 covers a full-frame equivalent focal length range of 225mm to 750mm, combining compact size with stunning image quality across the entire zoom range—from the center of the image to the edges. Photographers can now easily enjoy the benefits of ultra-telephoto photography with its easy-to-handle compact body. The new ultra-telephoto zoom is equipped with the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) precise and high-speed linear motor focus mechanism and TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. At the 150mm end, the lens offers an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 23.6” for powerful and dramatic close-ups. PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS 1. Compact 750mm equivalent¹ ultra-telephoto zoom lens Although it reaches the ultra-telephoto focal length equivalent of 750mm, the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is still quite compact in size with a length of just 8.3” and a maximum diameter of 93mm. Even when extended fully to the telephoto end, the length of the lens is only 11.2” so it can be used comfortably. The lens zooms from 150mm to 500mm by rotating the zoom ring through an arc of just 75° that enables rapid adjustment to the desired angle of view with minimal movement, avoiding missed opportunities and facilitating intuitive composition. 2. Amazing high image quality The optical construction features 25 elements in 16 groups. The generous and effective use of special lens elements including one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) element, five LD (Low Dispersion) elements, and two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements thoroughly controls aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations. And because the 150-500mm F5-6.7 is designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, it delivers extremely high image quality and overall performance across the entire zoom range, in the center and from edge-to-edge. 3. VXD AF motor provides high speed, high precision, and excellent quietness The 150-500mm F5-6.7 features the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. VXD delivers high-speed and high-precision movement and ensures responsive performance. Additionally, the linear motor also reduces drive noise and vibrations produced during focusing (as compared to a conventional drive system), making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in low-noise environments. 4. TAMRON’s acclaimed VC delivers excellent image stabilization The slim, compact 150-500mm F5-6.7 is equipped with TAMRON’s VC mechanism. The lens features a VC mode selection switch with three settings (Mode 1: Standard, Mode 2: Exclusively for Panning, and Mode 3: Framing Priority) so the ideal VC mode can be invoked to match shooting conditions. This functionality delivers excellent image stabilization performance, enabling efficient reduction of image blur caused by camera shake. 5. Telephoto-macro shooting unleashes excellent close-range shooting performance The 150-500mm F5-6.7 offers excellent close-up shooting capabilities for an ultra-telephoto lens. The MOD is 23.6” at the 150mm end and 70.9” at the 500mm telephoto end. The maximum magnification ratio at 150mm is exceptionally high at 1:3.1 (the full-frame equivalent of 1:2.1). Users can shoot powerful telephoto-macro images of subjects including flowers and insects while maintaining a reasonable shooting distance — closer than you can get with conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lenses. 6. Additional features for greater convenience Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount with strap attachment holes included Lens hood with flexible, protective front portion Switch designed for ease of operation and handling FLEX ZOOM LOCK mechanism to support greater usability Equipped with an MF SPEED switch that is handy when focusing manually 7. BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating delivers stunning clarity and contrast 8. Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating provide extra protection Footnotes ¹ Full-frame equivalent focal length
