The Sony FX6 Cinema Line Full-frame Cinema Camera - Body Only combines the best of Sony’s impressive digital cinema imaging technology with advanced imaging features from Sony’s industry-leading Alpha mirrorless technology. It becomes the smallest high performer in an exclusive Cinema line which also includes the VENICE and FX9 cameras, that delivers a coveted filmic look cultivated from extensive experience in digital cinema production. Destined to go where ever creativity may take you, the Sony FX6 features a full-frame CMOS sensor that is packed into a lightweight design. More compact than ever the FX6 weighs under 2 lbs and measures at 6 x 4.6". The FX6 is fully capable of capturing 4K60 video, features Sony's S-Cinetone gamma for filmlike skin tones, and can also capture up to 15+ stops of dynamic range. Powerful, compact and ready to tell your story, the FX6 delivers remarkable versatility.


Image Sensor with Blazing Fast Readout Speed

The Sony FX6 features an enhanced sensor that delivers impressive results. The back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, with 10.2 effective megapixels, boasts a blazingly fast data readout speed along with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. An advanced color filter array boosts color reproduction accuracy, while focal plane phase-detection AF enables solid autofocus stability and excellent precision, all of which contribute to outstanding image quality.


High Sensitivity, Wide Dynamic Range

Beautiful bokeh expression and high sensitivity performance are delivered by Sony’s 10.2-megapixel full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and a state-of-the-art BIONZ XR processing engine. Thanks to the large pixel size and back illuminated structure of the full frame sensor, the FX6 delivers an incredible 15+ stop wide dynamic range with high sensitivity and low noise throughout the camera’s sensitivity range. Its base sensitivity is ISO 800 with an enhanced sensitivity setting of ISO 12,800 -expandable up to 409,6003-for shooting in low and very low light conditions.


Acclaimed Cinematic-Color with S-Cinetone™

The inclusion of Sony's acclaimed S-Cinetone look, inherited from the development of the VENICE and FX9 development, allows beautiful images to be achieved directly in-camera. S-Cinetone is optimized for natural skin tones and mid-range colors, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction.


4K High Frame Rate 120fps Recording

Full-frame 4K (QFHD) recording at up to 120fps with autofocus is possible thanks to the high-speed readout capabilities of the image sensor and the powerful BIONZ XR processor. Even at high frame rates, ultra-detailed 4K (QFHD) images are captured using full-pixel readout without binning, for clear post-produced slow motion (up to 5x slower than real time). The high-precision AF even allows wide open aperture for beautiful full-frame bokeh to be achieved during slow motion shooting.


10-bit depth and 4:2:2 Color Sampling

The FX6 is capable of 4K internal recording, encoding 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 color sampling with either Full-HD Long-GOP or 4K All Intra compression. This makes it possible to push your color grades further, stretching video out for ultimate HDR realism while still retaining natural gradation, for true editing freedom.


Sony's Powerful Built-in Electronic Variable ND Filter

Sony's revolutionary internal electronic variable ND filter offers easy and seamless control of the camera’s filter density. Users can adjust the filter density manually in increments from 1/4 to 1/128 or set variable ND to auto for a smooth and seamless transition from 0 to 1/128 ND. Variable ND in auto perfectly exposes images without affecting the depth of field, shutter angle or ISO even during changing lighting conditions. Additional creative control allows the user to change depth of field without changing exposure by adjusting the iris while the variable ND automatically adjusts for exposure. Combined with the camera’s ultra-high sensitivity, the electronic variable ND filter provides users with outstanding creative control in almost any shooting environment.


10-bit HLG Picture Profile

An HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 color space, can be used for direct HDR (HLG) playback on compatible TVs. The result is true-to-life imagery close to what the naked eye can see, with detailed shadows and highlights, less blackout and less whiteout, all without the need for color grading. 10-bit recordings reproduce a level of fine gradation and detail for extraordinary realism.


All-Intra Internal Recording

In addition to Long-GOP inter-frame compression, internal intra-frame (All-Intra) recording is supported. XAVC 4K Intra recording compresses each frame independently at a high bitrate, up to 600Mbps, so is ideal for capturing complex motion, and allowing maximum flexibility and playback performance during post-production.


16-bit RAW Data Output

To facilitating high image quality and more flexible and efficient editing in post-production, the camera supports 16-bit RAW data output to an external recorder via SDI. RAW video output is DCI (4096x2160) or QFHD (3840x2160) data from the image sensor with a choice of 59.94/ 50 / 29.97 / 25 / 24 / 23.98 frame rates. Simultaneous RAW output is possible while recording internal XAVC-I.


S-Log3 For Better Reproduction of Gradations

S-Log3 gamma curves are available, with S-Log3designed for better reproduction of gradations from shadows to the mid-grey range (18% grey), enabling a dynamic range of up to 15+ stops. Two color gamut settings (S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3.Cine) make post-production editing and color grading easier when matching the colors of footage shot on the FX6 with Sony's Cinema Line cameras including the FX9 and VENICE.


Preset and User 3D LUT Compatibility with Scene File

The Scene File function provides powerful color interpretation right in the camera, with a range of presets and custom User 3D LUT imports to fit your production or style requirements. Four preset scene file types are included for SDR shooting (S-Cinetone, Standard, Still, ITU709) and two for HDR (HLG Live, HLG Natural). A further 16 slots support User 3D LUT import to achieve custom looks or for specific monitoring or color-space transforms.


Fast Hybrid AF for Dependable Focus During Movie Shooting

FX6 incorporates Sony’s highly acclaimed Fast Hybrid AF (autofocus) in all modes and frame rates. Fast Hybrid AF combines 627 focal plane phase-detection AF points with contrast-detection AF. This results in highly precise, smooth tracking of fast-moving subjects even over a wide range with a shallow depth of field, approx. 89% of the imaging area. Adjustable AF Transition Speed and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity parameters allow more flexible focus control, as demanded by professional users. Both allow preset settings to be recalled during recording by using a customizable button.


Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection AF

Powerful Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection AF are built in for reliable focusing on people, especially in unpredictable shooting environments such as news gathering, event and documentary shooting. The real-time processing capability of the BIONZ XR image processing engine automatically maintains accurate eye focus on faces even in profile, looking up or down, or partially obscured - allowing you to concentrate fully on shot composition.
