Sony CFexpress Type A 160GB Memory Card

Utilizing the latest flash memory control technology, the Sony CEA-G160T CFexpress Type A 160GB Memory Card offers high-speed data transfer, making it perfect for efficient, stress-free shooting. Do not let the size of this card fool you. This memory card features a compact design yet achieves read speeds as high as 800MB/s and write speeds as high as 700MB/s, greatly reducing buffer clearing times. The CFexpress Type A card is perfectly suited for compact cameras like Sony’s mirrorless Alpha series including the Alpha 7S III.

High-Speed Continuous Shooting

Suitable for high-speed continuous shooting of more than 1,000 uncompressed RAW still images, as well as 4K 120p movie recording at high bit rates with the Slow & Quick Motion function, this SD card performs beyond expectations when paired with cameras like the Sony Alpha 7S III. Additionally, the compliance of this SD card with the VPG400 video performance guarantee profile specification ensures stable video recording at 400 MB/s and creates a smooth workflow for professional creators.

Supports High Bit-Rate Data Transfers

For transferring the heat generated by the card while transmitting large amounts of data at high speed, this memory card is equipped with a heat sink that uses Sony's original alloy with excellent thermal conductivity. It ensures effective heat dissipation to support high bit rate data transfers and enables users to record for long periods of time, even when recording 4K 120p video internally.

TOUGH and Durable Construction

This CFexpress Type A memory card from Sony features outstanding durability and it keeps up with Sony’s TOUGH specifications. This card is five times more resistant to drop impact and up to ten times more resistant to bending, compared to its required standards. Its bend and impact resistant design ensures complete protection of your data in every situation. Apart from being resistant to humidity, X-rays, electrostatic charges, and ultraviolet radiation, this card features a specialized internal structure for achieving an IPX7-rated water resistance and an IP5X-rated dust resistance (IP57) for enhanced durability.

Supported Software

Thanks to Sony’s Memory Card File Rescue data recovery software, you don’t need to panic about the loss of your files in case of any accidents. This software allows you to recover the deleted RAW images and 4K video. Additionally, Sony’s Media Scan Utility media diagnostic software warns you before the number of read/ write cycles approach the card’s limit for giving you the peace-of-mind that the card will perform as needed for your next project. This media diagnostic software application for desktop computers will be updated to support CFexpress Type A cards and made available as a free download.

Sony Cinema Line FX30 Super 35 Camera with XLR Handle - Compact Cage-Free Design with 4K up to 120p

20.1 MP1 Exmor R APS-C (Super 35mm format) image sensor with wide dynamic range

Sony’s acclaimed image sensor technology in a new back-illuminated 20.1 megapixels APS-C Exmor R CMOS sensor (Super 35 format) achieves high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic latitude. 6K oversampling compresses a vast amount of information into 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) output, delivering 4K movies with overwhelming resolution. Capture the scene in cinematic 4K resolution with the expressive depth of field, stunning bokeh, and cinematic freedom of an APS-C size sensor. The image sensor maximizes light collection efficiency so that clear, usable images can be captured in dim light. Standard ISO sensitivity is 100 to 32000, and latitude is an impressively wide 14+ stops.

S-Cinetone for a cinematic look straight out of the camera without grading

The FX30 includes S-Cinetone, the same color science that produces the highly regarded FX9 and FX6 color and skin tones. Based on technology acquired through development of digital cinema cameras such as Sony’s VENICE 2, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin color, plus soft colors and gorgeous highlights. Because S-Cinetone produces all this directly within the camera, it's easy to achieve a beautiful cinematic look without the necessity of post-production grading.

Flexible ISO, Cine EI Quick and Cine EI Log shooting modes for optimized image quality

Three modes are provided for recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve (“Log Shooting Setting” in the menu) when post processing will be used to grade and finish the footage. Cine EI, inherited from Sony’s high-end Cinema Line models, offers wide latitude and the highest possible image quality. Cine EI Quick automatically switches the camera’s base ISO according to the selected Exposure Index (EI). And Flexible ISO provides the greatest flexibility for exposure settings.

User LUTs can be applied to the LCD display and HDMI output and embedded in clips

When recording with the S-Log3 gamma curve, the low-contrast image displayed on the monitor can make it difficult to judge how the final image will look. The FX30 allows custom LUTs to be applied to the LCD monitor and HDMI output, providing a more accurate preview of the final image. LUTs can also be embedded in clips to facilitate post-production processing4. The FX30 even includes a new s709 preset LUT that can provide a more cinematic look while monitoring. In addition to the preset LUTs, up to 16 user LUTs (.cube format)5 can be imported into the camera via memory card.

Dual Base ISO and a 14+ stop3 range for wide latitude and low-noise images

The Dual Base ISO provides two sensitivity settings - one at ISO 800 and one at ISO 2500. This allows you to select an appropriate noise floor, for clean images, as well as maximize the FX30’s dynamic range when shooting in both bright or low-light conditions. Furthermore, a wide 14+ stop latitude minimizes the risk of blown highlights or blocked shadows over a wide range of lighting conditions, making it easier to shoot top-quality images in just about any shooting situation.

Log recording for smooth cinematic image quality when color grading

For full-scale productions, the S-Log3 gamma curve provided in the FX30 has been designed for smooth gradations, and to make it easier to achieve cinematic image quality when color grading in post-production. Both S-Log3 and S-Gamut3.Cine offers high-quality color reproduction over a wide latitude, and special care has been taken to adjust the camera's output to ensure that the highest image quality can be easily achieved during post-processing.

Dependable, accurate autofocus with Real-time Eye and Real-time Tracking AF

Sophisticated tracking features keep your subject in steady focus so you can concentrate on composition. Wide-area AF with intelligent tracking uses focal-plane phase detection for tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame. Real-time Eye AF ensures precise focus on the face and eyes (human, animal, or bird), while Real-time Tracking provides reliable tracking thanks to Sony‘s unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms. Improved tracking is achieved even when shooting at high 120p frame rates.

Image stabilization Active Mode supports handheld movie shooting

Active Mode utilizes an in-body 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilizer and provides increased stabilization for movie shooting. A precision gyroscope sensor accurately measures camera shake and compensates optically, making stable video possible even when shooting hand-held without a gimbal, even while walking, and at 4K high resolution. 

Extensive recording formats for high image quality and advanced post-production

The FX30 can record 10-bit 4:2:2 video internally when using Long GOP or All Intra compression, making it possible to grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom. In addition to XAVC S AVC/H.264 encoding, XAVC HS format recording, using the HEVC/H.265 codec, roughly doubles the compression efficiency. XAVC S-I 4K and XAVC S-I HD formats provide per-frame Intra compression so the user can choose the most suitable format for the job at hand.

Creative slow-motion options with up to 4K (QFHD) 120p with autofocus

The FX30 offers 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second. Extraordinarily smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery at QFHD resolution with autofocus provides new expressive capability. The ability to capture moving subjects in smooth slow motion opens up a whole new world of creative potential.
