The Sony ILME-FX3 is the newest camera to join the company's Cinema Line alongside the FX6, FX9, and Venice. 

As expected, the Sony FX3 is very similar to the Sony a7S III mirrorless camera. I could continue writing about what this camera is, but there are already countless numbers of articles and YouTube videos covering that. 

Instead, here are the things Sony needs to add in a firmware update to make this camera more worthy of the Cinema Line namesake it has been given.

Introducing the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro - Can it dethrone Rode as the best on camera mic?


I recently placed an order for the new V-Mic D3 Pro on-camera shotgun microphone from Deity Microphones. Deity is a fairly new company that has quickly caught the ears of many audio professionals with their newly refreshed line of microphones designed by professional location sound mixers. A full review will be coming as soon as the microphone arrives. I'm hoping I can retire my old Rode Videomic Pro.
