The Sony FS5 shares the same sensor sensor as the existing FS7 and F5 cameras and allows shooting HD and UHD in XAVC-L to more budget-friendly SD media.

Similar to the now-discontinued FS700, slow motion bursts of up to 100, 200, 400 & 800 frames per second slow motion functionality is possible in HD. 

Compact and lightweight, this is an ideal camera for Gimbal/Drone use or as a B unit to the FS7/F55 canera,  Unusually, this camera also offers electronic variable ND filters (1/4 - 1/128th).

The α Mount lens system is compatible with wide variety of E-Mount and A-Mount* lenses and VMI are providing this camera as standard with electronic Metabones EF mount for maximum versatility.  

Note that this camera can mount directly to APS-C (Sony E Mount Lenses) without using any adapter.
