Sony FX3 Behind The Scenes

El Rey Short Film

Here’s a Sony FX3 behind the scenes look at the film Jacques Crafford shot for Freedom of Movement. He did so in collaboration with Sony. Looks like the crew had a lot of fun shooting with the FX3. The BTS was shot using the 24-70mm F/2.8 GM and the 35mm F/1.4 GM.

Similar to the a7s III without an EVF, Sony’s latest full-frame camera is intended for creators in the cine space. If you’re wondering what its purpose is, it has an internal fan for uninterrupted 4k shooting. Also, the unprecedented compact size and weight.
