Sony FX6 expands brand’s Cinema Line

Posted on Nov 19, 2020 by Definition Magazine

The new professional cinema camera features industry-leading tech alongside a 10.2MP full-frame sensor

The Sony FX6, the newest addition to the brand’s Cinema Line, brings two worlds together, combining features of Sony cine cameras like the Venice and the mirrorless Alpha range. The somewhat unique result offers potential for independent working filmmakers all the way up to high-end productions.

Built around a full-frame 10.2MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, the FX6 delivers 15+ stops of dynamic range with low noise. For low light situations, an expandable range up to ISO 409,600 is available, beginning at a base sensitivity of ISO 800.

Image quality promises to be impressive with DCI 4K up to 60p and Sony’s XAVC All Intra 4:2:2 10-bit depth, with slow motion possibility coming in the form of QFHD 4K up to 120p or Full HD up to 240p. To enhance the cinematic look further, the FX6 features Sony’s renowned S-Cinetone colour science.

Fast Hybrid Autofocus is a nice touch for many, with 627 points, advanced Face Detection and Real-time Eye AF tracking continuously in high frame rates. Autofocus capabilities work with over 50 E-Mount lenses for real shooting versatility.

To meet a range of professional workflow needs, a 12G-SDI output is featured, with support for 16-bit RAW HDMI output, timecode in/out, built-in Wi-Fi, four channel audio recording and two CFexpress Type A slots also present.

All this and more is contained within a durable magnesium alloy body, measuring 4.5x6x4.5 inches and weighing 0.89kg. With a modular design, accessories such as grips, gimbals and drones are easily attached. The camera’s 3.5 inch LCD viewfinder display can also be placed in a number of locations.

The Sony FX6 is available from December, with pricing falling in the region of £6000. For more information, please visit the Sony website.
