Sony has announced an exclusive competition to celebrate the creativity and spirit of content creators everywhere, with one lucky winner set to claim a brand new PXW-FS5 camera for their work.
Unveiled at IBC 2015, the compact new PXW-FS5 provides unsurpassed on-the-go shooting with stunning 4K image quality, in even the most demanding of conditions. The camera body weighs only 0.8kg, with an ergonomic weight balance to ensure comfortable and reliable handheld shooting. The PXW-FS5 allows filmmakers to push their work to the next level, with a truly adaptable design that allows multiple shooting angles, modification, and even mounting on a drone. Sony has built the PXW-FS5 with creative flexibility at the top of the agenda – eradicating limits to shoot any style, any angle, anywhere.
Sony is now giving filmmakers of all abilities the opportunity to win the PXW-FS5 for themselves. In a global competition, entrants are invited to submit a two-minute film under the theme of “No More Limits”, which will be scored on creativity and uniqueness as well as the difficulty level of the shots captured.
Eligible submissions should be uploaded to YouTube and entered on the Sony Professional website before 1st November. The videos which receive the most YouTube ‘likes’ from the 1st-15th November will form regional shortlists, with Sony selected judges choosing their picks. These regional finalists will each win a Sony α7s II, and will be entered into the global final to win the PXW-FS5. The grand final winner will also be announced during a global webinar in December.
