Capture the Impossible with Expanded ISO Sensitivity
The Sony FX6 is a formidable camera when it comes to low-light performance, thanks to its full-frame sensor and ISO range that expands up to 409600. This powerful combination allows you to capture images in near-total darkness, ensuring limitless shooting possibilities across various lighting conditions.
Experience Cinematic Quality with Stunning Bokeh and Full-Frame Creativity
The Sony FX6 Version 2.0 introduces a bokeh adjustment mode that minimises exposure changes while adjusting bokeh, offering enhanced creative control. Additionally, the 4K full-frame sensor allows for stunning imagery and shallow depth of field, giving a truly cinematic look to your footage.
Lens Breathing Compensation for Consistent Focus
The Sony FX6 includes Lens Breathing Compensation, a feature found in Sony's a7 IV. This ensures a consistent angle of view while focusing, maintaining the overall visual consistency of your shots.
S-Cinetone Colour Science for Vibrant and Natural Colours
The FX6 comes with S-Cinetone colour, developed for Sony's acclaimed FX9. This default look produces vivid, fresh images with rich colours and natural skin tones straight out of the camera, while still retaining latitude for post-production grading.
Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection for Precise Focus
The Sony FX6 has real-time eye AF and face detection. This ensures accurate and stable focus when conducting interviews, events, or any other situation that requires precise focus on people. This advanced system maintains pinpoint eye focus even when subjects are looking at steep angles, allowing you to concentrate on composing the perfect shot.
Powerful Focus Control for Solo Shooters
The FX6 offers 7 AF different transition speeds and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity over 5 different levels. This allows you to confidently convey your creative intentions when switching subjects or rack focusing.
Built-in Electronic Variable ND Filter for Changing Environments
The Sony FX6 features a built-in electronic variable ND filter, allowing for seamless control from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly, or simply set it to auto. This eliminates the need to change filters in fluctuating lighting conditions or when maintaining a specific depth of field.
Efficient Design to Prevent Thermal Shut Down
The custom ventilation system and chassis design of the Sony FX6 help prevent thermal shut down when shooting at high frame rates and 4K resolutions. Precise calculations ensure that optimum ventilation is achieved via internal heat sinks, exhaust vents and the shape of air intakes, as well as the location of the low-noise fan and airflow paths.
10-bit 4:2:2 Recording for Rich Colour Depth
The Sony FX6 allows you to record internally with a remarkable 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 colour sampling. This provides greater flexibility in image grading, post-processing, and compositing.
16-bit RAW SDI & HDMI Output for Demanding Post-Production Workflows
For high-end post-production requirements, the Sony FX6 offers 16-bit RAW output via SDI or HDMI connections to compatible external recorders while simultaneously capturing XAVC-I files in-camera. This enables a choice of 59.94 / 50 / 29.97 / 25 / 24 / 23.98 frame rates for RAW video output.
Support for Four-Channel Audio Input and Recording
The FX6's four-channel audio input allows simultaneous capture of external microphones along with the built-in microphone. You can also use UWP wireless microphones or XLR audio adaptors like the XLR-K3M with the MI Shoe (not included).
Dual CFexpress Type A Media Slots
The Sony FX6 has dual media slots supporting CFexpress Type A cards (not Type B), as well as conventional SDXC UHS-I and UHS-II cards. This ensures fast buffer clearance and efficient data management, with simultaneous, relay, interval, and proxy modes supported.
Networked for High Mobility
Wi-Fi connectivity enables advanced wireless production features such as remote control via smartphones or tablets and the Content Browser Mobile app. Connect easily with either Sony’s NFC One-touch or via manual pairing.
