The camera’s full-frame 6K sensor provides superb recording in DCI 4K*, Ultra HD & HD resolutions. Powerful image processing with debayering & oversampling ensures image quality beyond the limits of conventional Super 35mm sensors. The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor also uses Sony’s Exmor R technology for improved sensitivity & noise reduction. Compared to a 4K Super 35mm sensor, the FX9’s 6K sensor has over twice the surface area while providing a wider angle of view & shallower depth of field.*DCI 4K (4096 x 2160 at 17:9 recording) will be available with future firmware
The FX9 offers an exceptional 15+ stops of dynamic range & captures detail using either 4K 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording or 16-bit RAW external recording.* In grading, colourists can find colour & detail beyond the normal viewing abilities of the camera operator.* RAW recording requires future firmware release, XDCA-FX9 & external recorder.
Dual Base ISO
The FX9 features a base sensitivity of ISO 800, providing the optimal dynamic range for typical documentary applications.A secondary High Base sensitivity of ISO 4000 excels in low light conditions such as early morning & evening shoots while maintaining superb image quality. ISO 4000 is also ideal whenever you’re using slow lenses. Combining Dual Base ISO with the camera’s electronic variable ND Filter provides superb creative control.*ISO 800 & ISO 4000 are used in S-Log3, Cine EI mode.
Cinematic Colour Science with S-Cinetone™
S-Cinetone is the default look of FX9 that’s tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators with rich mid-range colours, developed with the same expertise as Sony’s world-leading VENICE digital cinematography camera. S-Cinetone means that straight out of the camera your content looks fresh & vivid.
Fast Hybrid AF
Effortlessly track fast moving subjects with pin-sharp focus, even when using wide lens aperture settings to maintain a shallow depth of field with the camera’s full-frame sensor. Developed by Sony’s α camera engineers, enhanced Fast Hybrid AF combines phase detection AF for fast, accurate subject tracking with contrast AF.In addition, Face Detection intelligently recognises & locks on to human faces.
The dedicated 561-point phase detection AF sensor covers approximately 94% of the whole image area width & 96% of height, allowing consistently accurate, responsive AF tracking, even with fast-moving subjects.
Stable, Shake-Free Handheld Footage
Advanced image stabilisation information means even handheld footage can be transformed with Sony Catalyst Browse/Catalyst Prepare software* in post-production to look as smooth as if it were shot with a gimbal. Unlike in-camera or lens stabilisation, meta data generated by FX9’s built-in gyro allows you to creatively choose the balance between the level of shake-compensation & the resolution of trimmed 4K imagery. This feature is also compatible with any E-mount lens & allows for far faster processing than conventional NLE stabilisation workflows**.
*Catalyst Browse/Catalyst Prepare Version 2019.2 or higher is required. Version 2019.2 is planned to be released mid-December 2019.
** Resolution & angle of view reduced compared to native footage.
