A truly innovative product should arrive by the end of the month. This is Sony FX3, an extremely compact professional-grade camcorder with a form factor similar to APS-C mirrorless cameras. Let’s see the details
Now all camera manufacturers are adapting to the new trend in the world of photography which is that of video. Fujfilm has even ported 4K video to its medium format mirrorless cameras. That it is just a marketing gimmick more than a real need of users, video is the industry that drives innovation and the digital camera market, harshly attacked by smartphones on all fronts and saved by the thousands of low-cost video productions that are populating VLOGs. Sony knows this too and in fact could pull off a unique video camera of its kind, Sony FX3. Let’s see the specifications in detail.
