Features

Image sensor with blazing fast readout speed

The back-illuminated full-frame Exmor RTM CMOS sensor, with 10.2 effective megapixels1, boasts a blazingly fast data readout speed along with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. An advanced colour filter array boosts colour reproduction accuracy, while focal plane phase-detection AF enables solid autofocus stability and excellent precision, all of which contribute to outstanding image quality.

High performance image-processing engine

The BIONZ XRTM image-processing engine boasts class-leading speed performance, minimising latency while providing impressive real-time processing capabilities. The engine performs real-time processing of AF, image recognition and image quality adjustments, while also handling data transfer, user interface and other camera operations.

High sensitivity, wide dynamic range

The full-frame 10.2-megapixel2 configuration enables high sensitivity with low noise throughout the camera's sensitivity range by optimising the output signal from the sensor. Capture usable images in near total darkness with an impressive ISO expanded range up to 4096003. The dynamic range is an impressively wide 15+ stops4, for beautiful, true-to-life images without blown highlights. Together, the camera's high sensitivity and wide dynamic range expand your creative freedom during shoots.

4K5 High Frame Rate 120fps recording

Full-frame 4K (QFHD) recording at up to 120fps4 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)67. The high-precision AF even allows beautiful full-frame bokeh to be achieved during slow motion shooting, for impressive creative scope.

Acclaimed cinematic colour with S-Cinetone™

The inclusion of Sony’s acclaimed S-Cinetone look, inherited from the development of the FX9, allows beautiful images to be achieved directly in-camera. S-Cinetone is optimised for natural skin tones and mid-range colours, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction and powerful camera-matching and post-production possibilities.

10-bit HLG picture profile

An HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 colour 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 colour grading. In particular, 10-bit recordings reproduce a level of fine gradation and detail for extraordinary realism. High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (colour grading required) Instant high-quality image (colour grading not required)

Reliable durability and weather resistance11 in tough situations

In response to pro opinions, enhanced sealing is applied to the media compartment lid, terminal cover and all joints in the chassis. Routes to dust and moisture entry have been re-examined to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.

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. The face selection algorithm has also been improved so that the focus ring can be used to quickly and intuitively select specific individuals from within a group when shooting with Real-time Eye AF or Face Detection. Autofocus operation resumes as soon as the user stops rotating the lens focus ring, and the last subject selected by the focus ring is automatically tracked.

Sony’s powerful electronic Variable ND Filter built in

The revolutionary electronic Variable ND Filter controls the opacity of the neutral filter seamlessly from 1/4 to 1/128ND to achieve unmatched creative control and fluidity. Unique to Sony, it can manually or automatically adjust exposure without affecting the depth of field or shutter angle, letting you achieve perfect exposure even moving between different environments such as from indoors to out.

Magnesium alloy body achieves high durability with light weight

To perform reliably in challenging environments the main chassis, as well as top, front, and rear covers and the handle are constructed from lightweight magnesium alloy. The magnesium alloy main frame achieves high strength and durability with minimum weight in order to maximise mobility. The rigidity of the mount area is also boosted by the provision of six screws for stable attachment of heavy lenses.

Innovative heat dissipation to prevent thermal shut down

To ensure dependable full-frame recording in demanding environments and at high resolutions and frame rates, the FX6 features an innovative heat dissipation structure. A complete redesign of the chassis structure assessed the placement of internal heatsinks and the entire airflow structure, from louvers to circuit board layout. When required, a silent12 fan provides ventilation for continuous recording13 at full resolution, with intake and exhaust air structurally isolated to maintain strong dust and moisture resistance.

S-Log3 for better reproduction of gradations

S-Log3 gamma curves are available, with S-Log3 designed for better reproduction of gradations from shadows to the mid-grey range (18% grey), enabling a dynamic range of up to 15+ stops4. Two colour gamut settings (S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3.Cine) make it easier to match the colours of footage shot with Sony's Cinema Line Cameras. Because the colours match, colour grading is easier in post-production editing, making it more convenient when used along with other pro cameras.
