Please note that this is the 4K/2K RAW upgraded version of the FS5. If you'd like to rent the version without the upgrade, please see the Sony PXW-FS5 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System. This upgraded version offers the following:

  • • 4K RAW Output
  • • Simultaneous XAVC HD Internal Recording
  • • 4K Cached RAW Output
  • • Continuous High Speed 2K RAW Output to External Recorder (240 FPS/200 FPS)

    The Sony FS5 sports a similar 12 million pixel sensor as the Sony FS7 but boasts a lighter form factor and greater ISO sensitivity. This particular version of the camera has the 4K/2K upgrade, which unlocks the full potential of the camera’s 3G-SDI connector and provides DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) RAW to an external recorder. It can also record DCI 4K at up to 120 FPS for up to 4 seconds. The FS5 essentially reimagines the FS7 with on-the-go, portable shooting in mind, along with a super fast boot-up of under 5 seconds. To keep the camera small, light, and ultra-portable, Sony designed linear RAW recording as an outboard function and this FS5 enables RAW recording with the including CBKZ-FS5RIF software. Just as with the original FS5, this camera is designed as a modular system that is easily taken apart without additional tools. It supports a rotating grip and the LCD can be attached to up to 9 different positions. An advanced cooling system makes the entire system durable and efficient. Live stream from any event thanks to a choice of WiFi or built-in wired LAN. The FS5 offers High Frame Rate cache recording at Full HD 10-bit 4:2:2 along with a frame rate of up to 240 FPS for super slow motion effects. Higher frame rates of 480 FPS and 960 FPS are also possible at limited resolutions. This camera offers ultimate mobility and customization for documentary and journalistic work.
