ony recently announced the FX6
(model
ILME-FX6V)
camera,
the latest addition to Sony's Cinema

technology to a broad range of
filmmakers and content creators.
Sony's Cinema Line, which also
includes the VENICE and FX9 cameras,
delivers a coveted filmic look
cultivated from extensive experience
in digital cinema production, as well
as enhanced operability thanks to
an innovative body design, extensive
durability and intuitive customisability.
As part of the Cinema Line, the

processing engine, and AF (autofocus)
performance. FX6 is also compatible
with the wide range of Sony E-mount
lenses for creative flexibility.
" The new FX6 is the latest example
of Sony's drive to continuously push
the boundaries of imaging technology
based on the needs of our customers, "
said Ryo Ochi, General Manager, Digital
Imaging Division, Sony Electronics Asia
Pacific. " With the advancement of
our Cinema Line, we are dedicated to
enabling the extraordinary skills and
talent of today's content creators and
cinematographers. The FX6 leverages
technology from Sony's industryleading VENICE cinema camera and
marries it with the best of Sony's
innovative Alpha mirrorless camera
technology. "

Full-frame Cinematic Image Quality
The new camera features a 10.2 MPii
full-frame back-illuminated Exmor
R™ CMOS sensor that delivers a 15+
stop wide dynamic rangeiii with high
sensitivity and low noise. FX6's base
sensitivity is ISO 800 with an enhanced
sensitivity setting of ISO 12,800iv expandable to 409,600v - for shooting
in low and very low light conditions.
It is capable of recording in XAVC All
Intra 4:2:2 10-bit depth with stunning
image quality in DCI 4K (4096 x 2160

- up to 60p), QFHD 4K (3840 x 2160
- up to 120pvi) and FHD (1920x1080
- up to 240p) for incredibly detailed
slow motion. When more convenient
file sizes are needed, FX6 can
record in XAVC Long GOP 4:2:0
8-bit QFHD 4K (3840 x 2160 up to 120p6) and 4:2:2 10-bit
FHD (1920x1080 - up to 240p).
FX6 also includes a BIONZ XR™
image processing engine, first
used in the new Sony Alpha 7S
III camera, providing up to four
times faster processing performance
compared to the FS5 II.
Developed with the same expertise
as Sony's world-leading VENICE
cinema camera, FX6 offers advanced
cinematic colour science including
S-CinetoneTM
for
richer
tonal
reproduction right out of the box
as well as S-Log3, S-Gamut3 and
S-Gamut3.Cine for post-production
flexibility. FX6's cinematic colour
science is optimised for premium
applications
by
capturing
the
maximum dynamic range from
the sensor and providing creative
freedom. Leveraging the colour
science of VENICE, FX6 also allows
productions to easily match footage
with other cameras in the cinema line.
Advanced Video Features
Pulling from Sony Alpha's impressive
AF features, FX6 offers Fast Hybrid AF
by combining 627-pointvii focal plane
phase-detection AF with advanced
Face Detection and Real-time Eye AF
in high frame rates with continuous
AF, allowing camera operators to
effortlessly and precisely track fastmoving subjects in slow motion
without losing focus. Fast Hybrid AF
works with over 50 native E-mount
lenses and at even 4K 120pviii. The
camera can also capture up to five
times slow-motion with 4K (QFHD)
120fps.
The new FX6 also offers internal
electronic variable ND filters for easy
and seamless control of the camera's

Sony ILME-FX6V with SEL24105G

filter density. Users can set variable
ND to auto or adjust the filter density
manually in smooth increments from
1/4 to 1/128 for perfectly exposed
images without affecting the depth
of field or shutter angle, even
during changing lighting conditions.
Combined with the camera's ultra-high
sensitivity, the electronic variable ND
filter provides users with outstanding
creative control in almost any shooting
environment.
Made for Content Creators on the Go
Built with a durable magnesium alloy
chassis, measuring just 4.6 inches x
6 inches x 4.5 inches (116 millimetres
x 153 millimetres x 114 millimetres)
and weighing just 1.96 pounds (0.89
kilograms), FX6 has a compact and
lightweight design making it easy
for users to grab and shoot at any
time. The new camera includes a
heat dissipating structure to keep the
camera's components within their
normal operating ranges to prevent
overheating, even during extended
recording times. FX6 also features
a modular design allowing users to
easily pair accessories, such as grips
and viewfinders, or attach the camera
to other mechanisms, such as gimbals
and drones.
FX6's 3.5-inch LCD Viewfinder can
be attached on multiple locations of
the camera body for added freedom
and easy menu control with touch
operation. Using a quick access control
menu for commonly accessed features,

Mic). The new camera also
features two media slots
compatible with CFexpress
Type A cardsix for higher overall
capacity and faster read and write
speeds in addition to SDXC UHS-II/
UHS-I cards.
Additionally, Sony's Catalyst Browse/
Preparex software facilitates fast and
easy editing. Users can import FX6's
image stabilisation metadata into
Catalyst Browse/Prepare to transform
handheld footage into incredibly
smooth and stable visuals. FX6 also
has a dedicated Clip Flag button to
easily filter and locate preferred
takes using Catalyst Browse/Prepare.

Browser Mobile App to easily monitor
and control focus, iris, and zoom
remotely xi.
