Sony FS5 II features:

  • 4K/2K Raw Output with External Recorder
  • Full HD up to 120 fps, 240 fps Burst
  • Electronic Variable ND Filter

Sony FS5 has proven itself as a versatile tool for documentary, event and indie production filmmaking. This new FS5 II offers several new features and refinements over the original FS5.

First among these is a re-tuned color science leaning heavily upon the color science incorporated in the flagship Venice camera. Sony claims this will result in a more fresh and vivid look with softer tones and more accurate skin tone reproduction.

In addition it will support 4 second bursts of 4K/UHD video at 120fps or continuous 240fps in 2K RAW. These framerates and formats both require output to a compatible external recorder.

Internal SD card recording will support HD 10bit 4:2:2 at 120fps continuous or 8 seconds of 240fps.

Instant HDR workflows are supported by the addition of HLG gamma with BT.2020 gamut. The addition of these HDR options increase the number of built-in picture profiles to 10.
