Sony FX6 Full-Frame Cinema Camera Announced

Sony announces the new FX6 full-frame cinema camera with 10-bit 4:2:2 4K/120p internal recording. Along with the Sony FX6 cinema camera, the company also unveiled the FE C 16-35mm T3.1 G E-Mount Lens.

Sony FX6 captures 10-bit 4:2:2 full-frame footage at 120 frames per second (fps) at 4K and 240 fps in 1080. If you use the onboard 12G-SDI port, the FX6 can output 16-bit SDI Raw 4K/60p video. Sony has also added its S-Cinetone look profile, which is inspired by its Venice colorimetry and also found in the company’s FX9 cinema camera.

The FX6 uses Sony’s E-mount for attaching lenses, making it compatible with more than 50 native lenses and countless dozens third-party lenses. The FX6 features the same 627-point Fast Hybrid AF system found in the FX9 and Sony’s Alpha mirrorless cameras, including advanced Face Detection and Real-time Eye AF.

Sony FX6 full-frame cinema camera  will be available for $6,000 in December. It will also be available as a kit with Sony’s FE 24–105mm F4 G E-mount lens for $7,200. Sony is also releasing a new FE C 16–35mm T3.1 G lens in December that will retail for $5,500.
