Sony launches the FX6
Our top news this week,
Sony has officially launched the FX6 full-frame cinema camera. The smallest in the Sony Cinema Lineup, the new Sony FX6 features a full-frame sensor fast and accurate autofocus and exceptional low-light capabilities, broadcast-ready 10bit 4K recording up to 120 frames per second, electronic variable ND filters, and much more. The perfect companion camera to the FX9, the new FX6 also features the same S-Cinetone picture profile for excellent out of the box colours. And for those looking to get the maximum dynamic range out of the camera, SLog3 cine is the prefered choice of gamut. In addition, much like the Sony a7s III, the new FX6 uses dual memory card slots for either CFExpress Type A, or fast UHS-II v60 and V90 SD Cards.
The compact camera body and removable top handle make it ideal for use on gimbal stabilizers on a huge range of productions from music videos, to corporate work and documentaries. The Sony FX6 is also capable of outputting a 16bit RAW signal out of the SDI output without the need for an extension unit like on the FX9. This raw signal is then recorded on the Atomos Shogun 7 as 12bit ProRes RAW in 4K up to 60 frames per second. The camera is now available to pre-order with first shipments scheduled to arrive in December, use the link below to find out more.
