New look for unbounded creativity

Stunning new Super 35 look

FS5 II’s all-new default look is specifically tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators with rich mid-range colours, alluring facial tones and a softer tonal look tuned with the same expertise as Sony’s world-leading VENICE digital cinematography camera. Straight out of the camera your content will look fresh and vivid, with subjects that really stand out, while still retaining plenty of latitude for post production refinement due to the high performance Super 35 ExmorTM sensor.

Stunning new Super 35 look

Making an impact

Standing out from the crowd isn’t easy. FS5 II makes it easy with complete creative freedom: slow down time with phenomenal high frame rates up to 120fps in 4K and 240fps 2K/Full HD. Deliver spectacularly vivid HDR imagery with a choice of HLG and S-log2/3.

Making an impact

Grab and shoot mobility

Lightweight but robust, FS5 II is an endlessly adaptable camcorder for capturing breath-taking imagery anywhere the action takes you. Its modular design makes it easy to reconfigure for any application including mounting on a gimbal or drone.

Grab and shoot mobility

High Frame Rate (HFR) recording

FS5 II delivers stunning slow motion imagery, including four seconds of 120fps in 4K, continuous 240fps in 2K RAW when used in partnership with a compatible third-party external recorder, such as the ATOMOS Shogun and Convergent Design® Odyssey 7Q. FS5 II also offers High Frame Rate (HFR) cache recording at Full HD 10bit 4:2:2 image quality and a frame rate of up to 240 fps. 8-second cache recording on to SDXC card means no more mistimed shots leading to extra takes. It also lets you pick out footage at exactly the point that you want. FS5 II also records continuous 120fps internally in Full HD. Higher frame rates of 480 fps and 960 fps are possible at specific resolution

High Frame Rate

Spectacular HDR performance

Demand for HDR content is increasing and FS5 II offers you a choice of two powerful workflows. Whichever option you choose, a phenomenal fourteen stops of exposure latitude ensures the highest fidelity in capturing highlights and details within shadows.

  • Instant HDR Workflow is all about speed. Shoot, edit and view content in Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) to deliver content quickly without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content.
  • S-Log2/3 is the proven choice for premium applications where you wish to capture as much data as possible for the ultimate flexibility in grading.

4K Super 35 Exmor (TM) sensor

4K Super 35 Exmor (TM) sensor

FS5 II is built around a high-sensitivity 4K Super35 ‘Exmor’ CMOS Sensor that offers all the benefits of a large format sensor in combination with the exceptional image readout speeds required for 4K motion-picture shooting and super slow motion. 4K resolution: 11.6 million total pixels and 8.8 million* effective pixels deliver 4K resolution. Even if you’re delivering in HD, your recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see.

Super 35 size sensor offers ‘bokeh,’ the defocussed backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field, as well as excellent low-light sensitivity and an expansive field of view. 14 stops of exposure latitude deliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail.

Sony’s Exmor CMOS design provides high-speed full-pixel read-out capability (without pixel binning) and sophisticated camera processing to ensure jaggies and moiré are minimised. Record 10bit 4:2:2 in Full HD at up 50Mbps internally.

Record 4K at 60**/50 fps in FS-RAW via a compatible third-party external recorder, such as ATOMOS Shogun and Convergent Design® Odyssey 7Q.
* RAW output **59.94.

α mount flexibility

Sony’s α mount system offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. FS5 II’s E-Mount can take cinema lenses and SLR lenses with a third-party adaptor, as well as Sony’s E-mount and A-mount lenses. So whether buying new lenses, or making use of lenses you’ve already purchased, FS5 II makes it easy.

You can also purchase FS5II on its own (PXW-FS5M2) or with lens SELP18105G (PXW-FS5M2K)

Built-in electronic Variable ND Filters

FS5 II features Sony’s unique built-in electronic variable Neutral Density (ND) filter, further expanding the depth of field capability of its large format sensor. Unlike conventional optical ND Filters, the electronic ND Filter on FS5 II can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. ND Filters can also be set to auto. This makes FS5 II ideal for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments – there’s no need to change filters as lighting conditions change and variable control makes it easy to keep depth of field under control.

New look and creative picture profiles

FS5 II features an all-new default look with beautiful highlights and subtle, well rendered facial tones for more emotive visuals where your subjects naturally stand out. FS5 II saves time in post production while still providing all the flexibility and creative latitude you require. There’s also an additional nine Picture Profiles, including ones customised for S-Log2, S-Log3 and a profile specifically tuned to provide vibrant, high contrast visuals for creators who desire a DSLR-style look. Each profile can be individually adjusted to suit your specific requirements and switched between in seconds.

Clear Image Zoom

This proprietary Sony technology significantly extends your ability to get closer to a remote scene while preserving image quality. Once you’ve zoomed in at maximum optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution technology can enlarge the image by additional 200% in Full HD and 150% in 4K. It is also compatible with fixed focal length lenses, so you can zoom into a scene while using a prime lens.

Lightweight, modular and robust

Despite its amazingly light 0.8kg body, FS5 II is more than tough enough for the rigours of real-world shooting. A magnesium chassis ensures high rigidity with ¼-inch screw holes on handle, top and bottom of the body to support mounting on a drone, gimbal or in an underwater housing. A detachable Smart Grip puts all of the FS5’s key functions are at your fingertips and is easily adjusted with the press of a single button.

Lightweight, modular and robust

Versatile monitoring

However you want to shoot, the FS5 II adapts to fit your style. A high resolution 0.39-inch OLED viewfinder enables precise manual focus and is perfectly offset for right-eye or left-eye viewing. A 3.5-inch LCD screen can be attached in no less than nine different locations: three on top of the handle and another six on top of the body. And once attached, the positioning of the screen can be freely adjusted – for example either beside the camera body or directly along the axis of the lens.

Versatile monitoring

Networked for high mobility

  • Live stream from any event thanks to a choice of Wi-Fi or built-in wired LAN.
  • Control FS5 II from your smartphone or tablet.
  • Built-in NFC supports one-touch authentication possible with appropriate devices.
  • Be first with breaking news thanks to a built-in wired LAN jack for high-speed FTP transfer of full resolution content.
  • GPS function automatically records GPS data.

Dual SD card slots with independent record control

To extend recording time and workflow flexibility, FS5 II is equipped with two SDXC/SDHC memory card slots. ‘RELAY’ mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while ‘SIMUL’ mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version). FS5 II’s three start/stop buttons on the grip, handle and camcorder body, can independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in ‘SIMUL’ mode.

Dual SD
Multi-interface (MI) Shoe

Multi-interface (MI) Shoe

FS5 II takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light.*

*Accessories sold separately. HVL-LBPC light does not draw power from FS5 II.

Dual XLR inputs

Dual XLR inputs

FS5 II has two XLR connecters – so even if you remove the handle with its standard, easy-access XLR connector then a second on the body is still available, making it ideal for applications such as shooting in a confined space, such as a car interior, or when mounting on a gimbal.

5 reviews for Sony PXW-FS5M2 4K XDCAM Compact Handheld Camcorder

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Joseph S. Bricker/New York

    The dream has always been a high quality sensor that you just put on a lens. FS5m2 gets closes to that. I am mostly recording ProRes RAW through an Atomos Shogun Inferno. That gives me 4k at 24, 30, 60, and continuous 120. Then in 2K you can do 240 or 120 FPS. The main problem with this camera is that it is inexpensive. Clients love the footage, love the workflow, love looking at the Shogun monitor, LOVE the slow-motion quality but not everyone takes it seriously if they are just looking at the price. Camera plus Shogun inferno is about $ but for that price you get ProRes RAW, you get a variable ND (so incredible), you get a lightweight very energy efficient body with a lens mount that can be adapted to almost all other mounts, true 4k (not UHD). Another problem is comparing it to other cameras. Variable ND that has zero color shift and goes from 1/4 to 1/128 is worth a lot and is only really on the FS7m2. Red has one but it isn’t as functional. So then that is better than all other cameras. What if you want to record raw? Well, the EVA1 can output raw but the body is more than the FS5m2 AND the Atomos recorder. What if you want some lens options? E-mount has wonderful lenses and the mount can be adapted to almost all other lenses. What if you want to shoot vintage Leica lenses? or speed boost vintage Nikon primes? E-mount can do it. EF or PL mounts can’t. This camera is literally the best one so far. The built-in Venice color profile is great. S-Log3 is great. RAW out is great. Variable ND is worth more than the rest of the camera. The menus aren’t awesome.

    Freddie A. Manno/Dayton, OH

    This camera is perfect for me, immediately put it to use on a documentary. Handles well & great picture. I like that it’s smaller than the FS7, allowing me to be slightly more covert in certain situations.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ruben R. Thomson/Hebron, LA

    Super light cinema camera. Produces great handheld footage and the S&Q motion (slow motion) is a great attribute for commercial work as well as sports. Also, a great documentary camera for run and gun, in fact, couldn’t recommend it more.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Roy L. Simons/San Francisco, CA

    Just awesome. Changes the game from a DSLR with the Super 35mm sensor. I could not be happier.

  5. Rated 4 out of 5

    Robert R. Treadwell/Anderson, SC

    The video looks great. Good low light performance. Small rubber cover for the HDMI port keeps opening on its own. Atomos Shogun Inferno screen looks great with a sharp image and high contrast. The downside, it goes through battery power very quickly. It’s slow to boot and slow to switch between record and playback mode. Hard case for Atomos Shogun Inferno is a nice addition. This is overall a great bundle giving you the ability to record ProRes RAW and get great images for a relatively low cost.
