The FX6 Full-Frame Camera from Sony was developed to offer versatile, cine-style imaging in a truly compact form. 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.

Weighing just under 900g, the FX6 body is a full 900g than the FX9 & measuring 6 x 4.6", it packs a full-frame sensor into a body comparable to the S35-sensor Sony FS5. 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. In addition to improving the camera's overall stability, firmware update v1.10 adds 100p & 120p options to the Slow & Quick Motion frame rate menu when the codec is set to RAW or RAW & XAVC-I.

Versatile Addition to Sony Cinema Line

As part of Sony's Cinema Line, the FX6 shares key imaging features with established cameras like the VENICE & FX9. Common core attributes include a full-frame sensor, filmlike colour science, a compact, lightweight form, professional connector interfaces, & advanced autofocus choices.

Compared to the FX9, the FX6 differs in several specs; but many FX6 specs tick the same boxes & several improve upon the FX9:

  • It matches the FX9's video capture up to DCI 4K60
  • Has the same S-Cinetone, S-Log3, & HLG gamma choices
  • Outputs 16-bit raw like the FX9
  • Sony E-Mount Lens Mount
  • Offers the same 1/4 to 1/128 ND options
  • Also provides 2-channel XLR audio inputs

FX6 differences from the FX9:

  • 4K capture vs 6K
  • Has a single 12G/6G/3G-SDI BNC port, trimming the FX9's additional 3G-SDI port
  • Incorporates a timecode port but lacks the FX9's genlock connector

Improved FX6 specs include:

  • An ISO range of 320 to 409,600 vs the FX9's 320 to 102,400 range
  • Top frame rates of 120p in 4K & up to 240p in HD vs the FX9's top 1080p in HD
  • Dual card slots compatible with both durable, highly efficient CFexpress Type A or widely available SDXC cards, compared to the FX9's reliance on proprietary XQD cards & a single SD card option

Firmware Update v1.10

Adds 100p & 120p options to the Slow & Quick Motion frame rate menu when the codec is set to RAW or RAW & XAVC-I. Also improves the overall stability of the FX6 camera.
