Optimised for Right Hand control 

Frequently used keys located on the top face enables easy thumb operation. Other controls to enable convenient right-hand operation e.g. MENU button, focus magnifier, etc. Customizable REC button on the front of the camera for easy recording by a solo operator.

Dust and moisture proof * 

In response to feedback from working professionals, dust and moisture resistance refinements have been implemented throughout the body. Sealing is provided at all body seams as well as the battery compartment cover, and the media slot has a double sliding cover and lock lever to keep water out. Cooling airflow from inlet to exhaust is completely isolated from the body interior. 



Uninterrupted 4K 60p Recording* 

The FX3 combines a fan for active cooling with a heat dissipating structure for passive cooling to efficiently cool the entire system and prevent heat buildup so that recording will not be interrupted by thermal shutdown. The cooling system effectively removes heat from the image sensor and image processing engine, allowing uninterrupted 4K 60p recording without thermal shutdown*. 



Anti-dust system 

The filter in front of the image sensor oscillates at an ultrasonic frequency of 70,000 cycles per second, powered by a revised drive system that effectively removes dust and particles from the filter surface. The anti-dust system is automatically activated whenever the camera is turned on, and can be activated manually via a menu whenever required. Effective cleaning means that lenses can be changed when shooting movies without having to worry about dust that can require tedious retouching during post-production. 



16-bit RAW recording 

16-bit RAW output is in 4264 x 2408 (16:9 aspect ratio) resolution, easily covering 4096 x 2048 DCI-4K. Frame rates of 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p, or 24p can be selected as required. The FX3 can simultaneously output 16- bit RAW video while internally recording XAVC HS 4K/ XAVC S 4K / XAVC S-I 4K as well as recording proxy files. 



Durable magnesium alloy chassis 

High body durability has been achieved through the use of a lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy for the top cover, front cover, internal frame, and rear cover. Accessory attachment screw holes and rings are machined from a hard stainless steel for maximum wear-resistance and reliability. The lens mount is attached by six screws for extra strength and rigidity that can handle heavy super-telephoto lenses. 



XLR adaptor with digital audio interface 

The supplied XLR handle unit adds two XLR audio inputs to the FX3, enabling high-quality audio recording. Camera settings provide a number of audio recording formats, including 4-channel 24-bit recording. The available formats are 48 kHz/16 bit/2 channel, 48 kHz/24 bit/2 channel, and 48 kHz/24 bit/ 4 channel.
