Large pixels deliver high sensitivity and low noise
The full-frame, back-illuminated, 10.2-megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor offers impressive light-gathering capability. Fast readout speeds and a dynamic range of 15+ stops deliver superb image quality with wide sensitivity and reduced noise. Realize 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.
Powerful BIONZ XRTM image processor
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.
Cinematic colour science with S-Cinetone™
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.
16-bit RAW SDI output and Professional connectivity
For demanding post-production workflows, 16-bit RAW output is available via SDI connection to compatible external recorders while XAVC-I files are simultaneously captured in-camera. RAW video output is 4096 x 2160 or 3840 x 2160 data from the image sensor with a choice of 120 / 100 / 59.94 / 50 / 29.97 / 25 / 24 / 23.98 frame rates.
A wide range of professional interfaces is available including 12G-SDI and HDMI outputs, a remote interface, TC connectors for multi-camera sync, and SuperSpeed USB 5 Gbps (USB 3.2) to support fluid data workflows.
10-bit 4:2:2 recording
Record right on the camera with the amazing richness of 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 colour sampling, for far greater flexibility in image grading, post-processing and compositing.
Capture the impossible with expanded ISO sensitivity
Capture usable images in near total darkness with an impressive ISO expanded range up to 409600. The full-frame sensor coupled with innovative light gathering ensures limitless shooting possibilities.
Impressive dynamic range for limitless expression
At its base sensitivity of ISO 800 the FX6 offers optimal dynamic range for well-lit interiors and outdoor documentary shooting. An enhanced ISO 12800 sensitivity is designed for challenging low-light, morning and evening shots. The FX6 offers an exceptional 15+ stops of 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 (627-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).
Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection supported
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 realizes 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.
4K 120fps with every frame in focus
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 and 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).
Built-in electronic Variable ND Filter
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 1/4 ND to 1/128 ND 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.
Shooting modes that match creator workflows
The FX6 offers shooting modes with preset looks like S-Cinetone that produce great-looking shots in-camera, or S-Log3 / S-Gamut3 with Cine-EI mode that capture perfectly exposed images for post production.
Support for four-channel audio input and recording
Four-channel audio input allows simultaneous capture of external microphones and the built-in microphone. UWP wireless microphones or XLR audio adaptors such as the XLR-K3M can also be used with the MI Shoe.
Dual CFexpress Type A-compatible media slots
Dual media slots support CFexpress Type A cards, along with conventional SDXC UHS-I and UHS-II cards, for fast buffer clearance and data management. Simultaneous, relay, interval and proxy modes are supported.
