Sony has just announced the newest member to their large sensor 4K camera family, the PXW-FS5. Bridging the gap between the Sony NEX-FS700 and the PXW-FS7, the PXW-FS5 brings a smaller form factor while retaining many of the features of the FS7. Those accustomed to the FS7 will find the form factor and button layout of the FS5 very familiar and comfortable. With a 3.5″ LCD monitor positioned on an adjustable mount up front and a 0.39″ OLED viewfinder out back, the FS5 can be utilized in a myriad of shooting situations and positions.
