Sony can soon expand its line-up of cinema cameras with the launch of Sony FX3. The images of this new camera have recently been leaked by Japanese camera leaker Nokoshita and Twitter user Joe Lawry. These images reveal a compact form factor which will should make the camera easy to carry around. The specs of the camera have also been teased online. The Sony FX3 is essentially a cinema camera version of the full-frame A7S III mirrorless camera and will have support for 4K videos at 120fps.

The new camera will come with similar specs as the A7S III, including 4K/120 fps video, dual CFexpress card slots, in-body stabilization and a still photo mode. The big change comes in design where the FX3 ditches the centre bump. It looks more like the Sony A7C but features a larger handle and joystick on top.

The image should shows a flip-out display which lacks the ND filter found in other Sony Cinema Line cameras. The other key feature missing from the Sony FX3 is the support for 8K videos.

The top body of the camera features the three standard tripod screws and large recording button. The camera can be used with accessories such as displays, microphones, etc required by video shooters. The camera will be positioned in the affordable category and can be launched as early as this month. It can also be Sony's smallest Cinema Line camera so far.

At the end of January, Sony had added a new camera to its Alpha series the Sony Alpha 1. The Alpha 1 comes with features such as a 50.1-megapixel sensor, 5-axis IBIS,15-stop dynamic range, AF system, and silent shutter among other things. The Sony A1 is capable of shooting 8K videos at up to 30FPS. The camera has features like S-Cinetone and Creative Look. And now, it's time to dive deeper into the technical specifications of the camera.

The Alpha 1 equips a 50.1-megapixel back-illuminated Exmor RS CMOS sensor. The camera is powered by a Bionz XR processor. Sony's latest camera can capture 50-megapixel images up to 30FPS without any blackout. The camera also features a silent and vibration-free electronic shutter which allows anti-flicker shooting with both mechanical and electronic shutter.
