Inside a compact body that's ready for grab-and-shoot action, the FX6 packs a highly sensitive, full-frame image sensor with the power to expand your moviemaking creativity.
Capture the impossible with expanded ISO sensitivity
Capture usable images in near total darkness with an impressive ISO expanded range up to 4096001. The full-frame sensor coupled with innovative light gathering capabilities ensures limitless shooting possibilities.
Stunning bokeh and full-frame creativity
Realise beautiful 4K imagery with the creative freedom made possible with a full-frame sensor. Capture every detail from the scene with shallow depth of field and stunning bokeh for a truly cinematic look.
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.
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.
Powerful BIONZ XR 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.
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 in 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*).
*When the 59.94Hz, 29.97Hz or 23.98Hz system frequency is used, AF is available at 30, 60, 120 and 240 fps. When the 50Hz or 25Hz system frequency is used, AF is available at 25, 50, 100 and 200 fps. AF is not available when the 24Hz system frequency is used.
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 realises 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.
Powerful focus control for solo shooters
With AF transition speed selectable over 7 levels, and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity over 5 levels, you can better convey your creative intentions when switching subjects or, for example, rack focusing.
Lens-ring AF subject selection
When the AF Assist function is ON, rotating the focus ring instantly switches from autofocus to manual focus so that a different subject can be quickly selected. Autofocus operation resumes as soon as the user stops rotating the lens focus ring.
Auto focus area/position
For auto focus, you can set the target area among Flexible Spot, Zone, Wide and change the position of the target area quickly during shooting by simply touching the LCD monitor.
4K 120fps with every frame in focus
High Frame Rate (HFR) 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&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 1/4ND to 1/128ND 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.
Architecture to prevent thermal shut down
The custom ventilation system and chassis design help to prevent the thermal shut down of shooting at high frame rates and 4K (QFHD) resolutions. The number of heat sinks, the shape of air intakes and exhaust vents as well as the location of the low-noise fan, and airflow paths have all been calculated with precision to ensure that optimum ventilation is achieved.
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.
16-bit RAW SDI output
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 4096x2160 or 3840x2160 data from the image sensor with a choice of 59.94 / 50 / 29.97 / 25 / 24 / 23.98 frame rates.
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 (not included).
Dual XLR inputs and enhanced audio capability
The handle of the FX6 has two independent audio inputs, easy-access XLR connectors to connect external professional microphones. UWP series wireless microphones may also be connected via the MI Shoe (not included).
Dual CFexpress Type A-compatible media slots
Dual media slots support CFexpress Type A cards (not Type B), 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.
Networked for high mobility
Wi-Fi connectivity enables a host of advanced wireless production features such as remote control via smartphones or tablets and the Content Browser Mobile app. Connect easily with either NFC one-touch or manual pairing.
