Combined Sony’s technology in Digital cinema camera Venice, FS series and a (Alpha) ILC cameras. Sony’s full-frame 6K sensor camera with Fast Hybrid AF, dual base ISO and cinematic colour science and S-Cinetone. Sony PXW-FX9 Full Frame 6K Sensor & 4K Recording.

The Sony PXW-FX9 is the long awaited successor to the legendary PXW-FS7 and it brings some fantastic upgrades with it. The FX9 has a Full Frame 6K dual native ISO sensor, VENICE colour science, upgraded auto-focus capabilities, built in genlock and timecode and much more.

The FX9 features a full frame 6K 35.7 by 18.8mm back-illuminated Exmor-R CMOS sensor. This sensor is stated to have 15 plus stops of dynamic range and has a resolution of 6008 x 3168.  You will be able to shoot QFHD full frame up to 30fps, 1080p full frame at up to 120 fps and QFHD S35 up to 60fps and 1080p S35 at up to 120fps. The planned firmware updates will bring Full frame DCI 4K up to 60p, Full HD full frame up to 180fps and QFHD in Super 35 mode at up to 120fps while using an external recorder.

You can also customise the autofocus, tweaking things like the AF transition between slow, for stuff like promo videos where you want slow smooth focus movements to fast which will be great for sports. You can also change the AF subject shift sensitivity which defines how easily the focus is switched to another subject. This goes from locked if you are wanting to do a walk and talk for example to responsive which you may need to keep better general focus.

You can record up to four channels of audio with a range of different input options, The FX9 has an internal scratch mic, two XLR’s, you can use a dual channel receiver with the MI shoe on the handle or you can now use the DWX series of drop in receivers and transmitters with the new XDCA -FX9 back module.

The FX9 does not feature SLOG2 only SLOG3 with S-Gamut3 & S-Gamut3. Cine, this is because the SLOG2 gamma curve is designed for 8-bit whereas all of the codecs on this camera are 10-bit. They have also added an S-Cinetone colour profile which is aimed to bring the colour science from the VENICE to the FX9.

Realise beautiful 4K imagery with the creative freedom made possible by oversampling a huge high resolution full-frame sensor. Capture every detail from the scene with shallow depth of field and stunning bokeh with a truly cinematic look. 15+ stops of dynamic range and Dual Base ISO enable capture of every nuance, from subtle shadow detail to specular highlights and with an immaculate colour palette.
