Sony FX6

Sony has announced the development of a new FX6 camera as part of their new Cinema Line. And while details are very scarce at the moment, all we have to go by is a couple of images on the Sony website showing a compact camera style akin to that of the FS5. The new Sony Cinema Line includes the VENICE and the Sony FX9, and it appears that the upcoming FX6 will be a more affordable camera. Sony says deliveries will start before year's end.

Panasonic Lumix S5

Panasonic has just unveiled a new and more budget-oriented full frame mirrorless camera. The new Panasonic S5 features a 24 megapixel full frame sensor with Dual ISO, in body image stabilisation, and in-camera 4K60p recording in a 10bit codec. The new S5 borrows features from both the S1 and the higher tier S1H hybrid to give video creators a lightweight and more affordable tool. However, the S5 is not just for video, the camera features an improved autofocus system aided by machine learning, as well as a High Resolution Mode capable of stitching a 96 Megapixel image in camera in either JPEG or RAW. Panasonic estimates deliveries to start around mid-September.

Fujinon Premista 19-45mm Cine Zoom

Fujifilm has also announced the development of a new compact wide-angle cine zoom which is due to arrive sometime early next year. The new Fujinon Premista 19-45mm T2.9 zoom joins the esteemed Premista cine zoom family, which already includes the 28-100mm and 80-250mm cine zooms. The new Premista wide-angle will feature a large image circle with a 46.3mm diameter covering all major large format cameras including the Sony VENICE and Alexa Mini LF. Fujifilm will also implement their unique lens coatings for a pleasing and organic image that easily matches the rest of the lineup as well as their Premier and Cabrio lenses.
