Getting To Us


Event Overview
Be one of the first to get up close and personal with a pre-production model of the new Sony PXW-FX9 camera. Try out this great 4K camera for yourself and understand the benefits by talking directly to the product experts from Sony together with independent camera guru Neil Thompson.  
Seeing is believing
With a similar form factor as the popular FS-7/M2 , 6K Full-Frame sensor delivering 15 Stops of dynamic range, dual base ISO, electronic variable ND filter , fast hybrid AF and S-Cinetone™ colour science, the FX9 is an ideal camera for documentary, cinema, and live event production. It is also Netflix approved.
The specs of this camera look good however, you can only judge if it’s right for you by trying it out for yourself.
Held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere you can chat with other attendees to understand if this camera fits your requirements and what they think about the competition. This event will equip you with the practical knowledge and hands-on experience to know whether investing in this camera is worth it, which accessories are best and which to avoid.
Equipment being demonstrated includes the Sony PXW-FX9 plus a range of lenses and Vocas accessories.
We are running two identical sessions, each one will start with a presentation from independent expert Neil Thompson followed by a Q&A session with plenty of time for you to get your hands on the kit.

You will leave this session with:
  • A clear understanding of how the FX9 differs from the FS7/M2
  • Advice on the benefits it offers over the competition
  • How the dual native ISO gives extra flexibility
  • Hands-on experience of using the FX9 with appropriate accessories
Who should attend:
The Sony FX9 is the ideal camera for documentary, cinema, and live event production including single-user operation. It is tailor-made for owner/operators, independent filmmakers, documentary makers and corporate production creators.
This event is a must for anyone interested in a 4k Full Frame camera
