Image | Image Quality and AF

Capture every moment with stunning image quality and precise AF technology

The FX6 is the first professional Sony camcorder to allow internal slow-motion capture at QFHD resolution up to 120 frames per second*. For even slower frame rates, recording at Full-HD will enable 240 frames per second**. The advanced Fast-Hybrid AF system used in the FX6 is comprised of 627 phase-detection points, with 89% coverage across the sensor for extremely fast, precise focusing. This incredible autofocus speed and coverage is paired with Real-Time Eye AF and Face Detection AF. This unparalleled autofocus performance is achievable in all frame rates in all recording modes, ensuring the FX6 will ever miss focus in any frame.

Image | Lighting

Mastering diverse lighting situations

The FX6 is a real low light monster that has an incredible expanded ISO of 320 up to a staggering 409,600*. When shooting in Cine EI mode, the FX6 utilises the dual base ISO for noise-free footage at either ISO 800 for optimum performance in controlled lighting conditions, or ISO 12800 for enhanced sensitivity when shooting in low light.

When it comes to outdoor lighting, Sony’s electronically controlled Variable ND filter allows seamless ND adjustment from 1/4 to 1/128. The FX6 also supports an Auto ND function that keeps exposure constant by automatically adjusting the ND filter when the camera is moved between lighting environments.

New menu with touch control

It's what many professional photographers and videographers have been requesting: a revised menu structure for easier navigation, and touch-responsive menu control, playback and touch focus during shooting.

Image | Lightweight & Compact Body

Amazing compact and lightweight modular body

Despite the compact size, the FX6 has a large-format full-frame image sensor and built-in cooling, allowing creators to explore new horizons. The size and weight of the FX6 is not only ideal for handheld shooting but is also practical when mounting on a gimbal stabilizer or drone, and even in underwater housing.

The modular body makes it easy to attach or remove accessories with eight mount screws, allowing the FX6 to still feel at home when kitted out on a large rig.

Image | Professional Operability and Reliability

Professional operability and connectivity

The FX6 contains all the operability and functionality expected from a cinema camera. 12G-SDI and HDMI outputs offer external monitoring as well as external recording in 16-bit RAW for the most demanding film content. For internal recording, the FX6 delivers incredibly rich footage through the XAVC-I recording format at 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, with internal audio recording capable via the 4 channel XLR recording inputs.

Image | Innovative heat dissipation

Innovative heat dissipation to prevent thermal shut down

The FX6 features an innovative heat dissipation structure.
The placement of internal heatsinks and the entire airflow structure has been redesigned to offer optimal cooling. When required, a silent fan provides ventilation for continuous recording at full resolution.

Image | Two CFexpress Type A-compatible media slots

Two CFexpress Type A-compatible media slots

The camera's two media slots are compatible with CFexpress Type A cards as well as SDXC/SDHC cards supporting UHS-I and UHS-II speed classes. They are capable of quickly clearing camera buffers even when high volumes of 4K movie data are being generated.

Image | Metadata to facilitate editing with Catalyst

Metadata to facilitate editing with Catalyst

Sony’s Catalyst Browse and Prepare software are ideal production partners for the FX6. The FX6 records three types of metadata: image stabilisation, clip flag, and camera rotation. These can be useful when previewing and preparing to edit in Sony’s free Catalyst Browse or cost-effective Catalyst Prepare software.
