Sony FX6 Overview

Sony FX6: Compact Cinema Capture

The FX6 Full-Frame Camera from Sony was developed to offer versatile, cine-style imaging in a truly compact form. With the ability to capture up to 15+ stops of dynamic range, Sony’s S-Cinetone gamma for filmlike skin tones, and up to 10-bit, 4:2:2 XAVC-I recording, the FX6 is poised to both supplement your FX9 or VENICE capture and to nimbly take on documentary, gimbal, and drone shoots on its own.
4K Full-Frame Exmor R Sensor
The FX6 camera combines a 4K full-frame Exmor R sensor with a BIONX XR engine for extremely sensitive capture in a range of settings, using a base ISO of 800 as well as an ISO 12800 high-sensitivity mode for nuanced low-light scenes. This 10.2 MP image sensor features back-side illumination for excellent low-light performance, 627 focal plane points for speedy phase-detection autofocus, and full-frame lens compatibility that produces a rich, immersive look. The sensor’s fast scan speed minimizes rolling shutter artifacts and supports high frame rates and quick autofocus responses.
Compact, Single-Operator Design
Weighing just under 2 lb, the FX6 body is a full 2 lb lighter than the FX9 and measuring 6 x 4.6″, it packs a full-frame sensor into a body comparable to the S35-sensor Sony FS5. While the FX6 fits seamlessly into a pro-cine on-set workflow, it also offers several features that are a boon for a single-operator user. These include fast and accurate phase-detection autofocus with both Face Detection and real-time Eye autofocus, both auto and manual ND filter settings for quick exposure compensation, and a 3.5″ LCD monitor that boasts time-saving touchscreen access to key menu settings and versatile positioning for comfortable operating. In addition to improving the camera’s overall stability, firmware update v1.10 adds 100p and 120p options to the Slow and Quick Motion frame rate menu when the codec is set to RAW or RAW and XAVC-I.
Versatile Addition to Sony Cinema Line

As part of Sony’s Cinema Line, the FX6 shares key imaging features with established cameras like the VENICE and FX9. Common core attributes include a full-frame sensor, filmlike color science, a compact, lightweight form, professional connector interfaces, and advanced autofocus choices.

Compared to the FX9, the FX6 differs in several specs; but many FX6 specs tick the same boxes and several improve upon the FX9:

  • It matches the FX9’s video capture up to DCI 4K60
  • Has the same S-Cinetone, S-Log3, and HLG gamma choices
  • Outputs 16-bit raw like the FX9
  • Sony E lens mount
  • Offers the same 1/4 to 1/128 ND options
  • Also provides 2-channel XLR audio inputs

FX6 differences from the FX9:

  • 4K capture vs 6K
  • Has a single 12G/6G/3G-SDI BNC port, trimming the FX9’s additional 3G-SDI port
  • Incorporates a timecode port but lacks the FX9’s genlock connector

Improved FX6 specs include:

  • An ISO range of 320 to 409,600 vs the FX9’s 320 to 102,400 range
  • Top frame rates of 120p in 4K and up to 240p in HD vs the FX9’s top 1080p in HD
  • Dual card slots compatible with both durable, highly efficient CFexpress Type A or widely available SDXC cards, compared to the FX9’s reliance on proprietary XQD cards and a single SD card option
Firmware Update v4.0
  • Update your Sony FX6 with v4.0 firmware to access new features that were designed with feedback from the pro cine community.
  • Anamorphic de-squeeze is now available in both 1.3x and 2.0x ratios for viewing in the viewfinder and through the HDMI output.
  • Cine EI Quick support enables you to select the same workflow as Cinema Line cameras like the FX3 and FX30, streamlining your multi-camera process.
  • Clip naming now uses the same process as the CineAlta cameras, ensuring an easier multi-camera workflow.
  • Autofocus is available when using frame rates of 7 fps or higher in S&Q (Slow & Quick) mode.
