Visual Stories with Extraordinary Freedom
Capture the impossible with expanded ISO sensitivity
Capture usable images in near total darkness with an impressive ISO expanded range up to 4096002. The full-frame sensor coupled with innovative light gathering ensures limitless shooting possibilities.
Realise beautiful 4K imagery with the creative freedom made possible by a full-frame sensor. Capture every detail from the scene with shallow depth of field and stunning bokeh for a truly cinematic look.
S-Cinetone colour, developed for Sony’s acclaimed FX9, is the default look on the FX6. Precisely tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators with rich colour and natural skin tones, it produces fresh and vivid images straight out of camera without grading, while retaining plenty of latitude for post production.
The full-frame, back-illuminated, 10.2-megapixel3 Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor offers impressive light-gathering capability. Fast readout speeds and a dynamic range of 15+ stops2 deliver superb image quality with wide sensitivity and reduced noise.
The BIONZ XR image processing engine matches the sensor’s high-speed readout with enormous processing power. Built with a future-oriented architecture, it delivers high quality images faster and dramatically improves camera interface responsiveness.
At its base sensitivity of ISO8004, the FX6 offers optimal dynamic range for well-lit interiors and outdoor documentary shooting. An enhanced ISO 128004 sensitivity is designed for challenging low-light, morning and evening shots. The FX6 offers an exceptional 15+ stops 2of dynamic range ‒ beyond the perception of even the human eye in many conditions ‒ allowing for unprecedented creative freedom in colour grading and post.
Fast Hybrid AF for accuracy and tenacity
The wide-area AF uses intelligent tracking and on-sensor phase-detection for tenacious subject tracking across almost the entire frame (6275-point focal plane phase-detection AF covers approx. 89% of the image area). The hybrid AF system delivers precise focusing even when shooting at shallow depths of field and at 120p high frame rates in 4K (QFHD)6
Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection ensure accurate, stable focus acquisition for interviews, events, and anywhere where precise focus on people is essential. Sophisticated real-time processing realises pinpoint eye focus even when subjects are looking down or up at steep angles, allowing the operator to concentrate fully on composing the best shot.
With AF Transition Speed selectable over 7 levels, and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity over 5 levels, you can better convey your creative intentions when switching subjects or, for example, rack focusing.
When the AF Assist function is ON, rotating the focus ring instantly switches from autofocus to manual focus so that a different subject can be quickly selected. Autofocus operation resumes as soon as the user stops rotating the lens focus ring.
For auto focus, you can set the target area among Flexible Spot, Zone, Wide and change the position of the target area quickly during shooting by simply touching the LCD monitor.
High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday action into a visual feast of elegant movement. The FX6 captures up to 120 frames per second (fps) at the 4K (QFHD) resolution. Slow and Quick (S&Q) modes give you full control over the captured frame rate from 1 to 120fps, allowing precise motion narratives, and up to a beautiful 5x Super Slow Motion (24fps output).
Experience smooth, responsive autofocus with Sony E-mount lenses, with premium optical performance and operability for demanding cinematography applications. Unique actuator technology in Sony E-mount lenses provides faster and more precise AF performance, supporting your creative endeavors.
The FX6 features Sony’s unique built-in electronic Variable Neutral Density (ND) filter. Unlike conventional optical ND Filters, the electronic ND Filter on the FX6 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly, or set to auto. Ideal in changeable environments, there’s no need to change filters as lighting conditions change or to maintain your depth of field.
Despite its amazingly light 0.89kg body, the magnesium-alloy FX6 is more than tough enough for the rigours of real-world shooting. A detachable Smart Grip puts key functions at your fingertips and is easily adjustable with a single button.
Ideal for low angle shooting, the smart handle is part of the FX6’s modular design. It’s easy to reconfigure for any application, including mounting in a gimbal, drone, or underwater housing.
To perform reliably in challenging environments, the main body, covers and top handle are made from a production-tested, lightweight magnesium alloy. The main frame achieves high strength and durability with minimum weight in order to maximise mobility.
The custom ventilation system and chassis design help to prevent the thermal shut down of shooting8 at high frame rates and 4K (QFHD) resolutions. The number of heat sinks, the shape of air intakes and exhaust vents as well as the location of the low-noise fan9, and airflow paths have all been calculated with precision to ensure that optimum ventilation is achieved.
Wi-Fi® connectivity enables a host of advanced wireless production features such as remote control via smartphones or tablets and the Content Browser Mobile app. Connect easily with either NFC one-touch or manual pairing.
