The Sony PXW-FS5 XDCAM w/FS RAW Upgrade is an upgraded version of the Sony PXW-FS5 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System that enables external RAW video-recording capabilities. Key features include:

  • External RAW video capture

  • 4K video capture in 60p

  • UHD 4K video capture

  • Fourteen-stop dynamic range

RAW Video. Shoot 12-bit 2K-RAW and 4K-RAW video when used with the Convergent Design Odyssey7Q+, or record 4K ProRes 10-bit 4:2:2 using the ATOMOS Shogun Flame 4K HDMI/SDI Recorder.

60p in 4K. The RAW upgrade adds the ability to send a 59.94p signal out to a recorder and record slow motion 4K footage. The FS5 can also record DCI 4K at up to 120 fps for up to four seconds by using the internal cache recording function of the camera.

Dual Internal/External Recording. Record 1080p internal proxy files while externally recording 4K RAW footage.

Small in Size, Huge in Versatility. The FS5 packs a large feature set into a small form factor. It offers the benefits of a large camcorder in a package that’s closer in size to a DSLR. Weighing in at just under 5 lbs., the PXW-FS5 is a great candidate for stabilizers, sliders, and general running and/or gunning.

Smart Grip. Sony introduces a new version of the Smart Grip for the FS5 with full 360° rotation, assignable buttons, an assignable dial, and a joystick to enhance control.

Dual SDXC Card Slots. The Sony FS5 uses industry-standard SDXC media and offers a variety of recording options for file spanning and redundancy, as well as the ability to record proxy files with the same name and timecode as the main recordings.

Ultra-High Resolution. Future-proof your projects by capturing UHD 4K (3,840 × 2,160) resolution.

High Dynamic Range. The 12-bit RAW functionality provides an enormous amount of detail and information. It gives you nearly fourteen stops of dynamic range in your footage.

External Recorder Required. This camera doesn’t capture RAW video internally. You must use a compatible external video recorder to capture RAW footage.
