With the ability to capture up to 15+ stops of dynamic range, Sony's S-Cinetone gamma for filmlike skin tones, & up to 10-bit, 4:2:2 XAVC-I recording, the FX6 is poised to both supplement your FX9 or VENICE capture & to nimbly take on documentary, gimbal, & drone shoots on its own. The FX6 camera combines a 4K full-frame Exmor R sensor with a BIONX XR engine for extremely sensitive capture in a range of settings using a base ISO of 800 as well as an ISO 12800 high-sensitivity mode for nuanced low-light scenes.

While the FX6 fits seamlessly into a pro-cine on-set workflow. These include fast & accurate phase-detection autofocus with both Face Detection & real-time Eye autofocus, both auto & manual ND filter settings for quick exposure compensation, & a 3.5" LCD monitor that boasts timesaving touchscreen access to key menu settings & versatile positioning for comfortable operating.
