Sony PXW-FS5 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony PXW-FS5 FS RAW Output Upgrade License enables the Sony PXW-FS5 camcorder to output DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) RAW at 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, and 59.94p, and 2K RAW at 100, 120, 200, or 240 fps as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, and 59.94p.

While outputting 4K/2K RAW, the camcorder will also be able to simultaneously record XAVC HD on SD memory cards in its internal dual media slots. With this capability, you can use the RAW recording for production and the XAVC recording for on-set review. Approximately 4 seconds of cached 4K RAW can be output at 100 or 120 fps as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, or 59.94p.

The FS5 will require firmware version 2.0 or above for this upgrade.

Sony PXW-FS5 reviews

PXW-FS5 FS RAW Output Upgrade License is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turns a good camera great. As an existing Odyssey 7Q owner, this Raw update for the FS5 turns a decent camera into a high-usable A-Cam. Had issues with codec breakdown and blocking with the FS5, especially in slow motion settings, so we had relegated the camera to B-cam secondary shooting and opted for the FS7 most of the time. Now, being able to output Raw via the SDI to the Odyssey, this camera is now a viable A-cam alongside the FS7. Update is easy to install and well worth it (if you have a raw recorder of some kind).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turn Fs5 into Fs7 Great upgrade if you want to kick out Raw files. You'll need an Odessy as Sony's raw recorders are absurdly expensive. Also Shogun can get close to Raw with its prores codec.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from silly process, but significantly improves the FS5 The idea of unlocking a feature that is already built into a product irks me, but that's the game we have to play these days. Having to pay for a piece of paper to be mailed to me to initiate the process that is completed via the internet is absurd. These gripes aside, the upgrade does add features that bring the camera to a new level. I think SONY could have included the faster frame rate option, but...well, its all about the money, isn't it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade for your FS5. We've been using our FS5 for about 18 months now, and it's been great as a run and gun mini-doc style camera, although we found ourselves struggling when it comes to getting a solid grade out of the image. The RAW Upgrade changes it all, and makes the FS5 feel like more like a cinema camera. By no means, am I saying that this qualifies the FS5 against a RED, or ARRI, however it does make the FS5 much more suitable for an in-house A-CAM to have quality RAW footage captured. The 4k 60fps looks beautiful as does the 2k 240fps. The fact that you have to purchase a card, have it shipped to you, then download the firmware from a Sony site is a little frustrating although seems to be a pretty common Sony pain point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade option This raw upgrade unlocks 4096x2160 and raw SDI output on the FS5. It makes an excellent film tool even better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great upgrade It was a little tricky to install, but worked great with the Atomos Shogun Flame recorder. I was able to shoot 4K RAW with great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Worth every penny. If you're buying the FS5 you should buy this upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have option for FS5 users This was a really good investment. Right away this upgrades your camera into a workhorse and stacks up to RED camera image quality.
