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.

Sony Introduces the New Cinema Line and Teases a New FX6 Cinema Camera

Sony Electronics today announced the launch of Cinema Line, a series of new camera products for a wide range of content creators which will bring together Sony’s expertise in image quality, attention to detail, technology and passion in digital cinema.

Cinema Line will deliver not only the coveted cinematographic look cultivated through extensive experience in digital cinema production, but also the enhanced operability and reliability that meet discerning creators’ various needs. The new series will extend beyond basic cinema camera and professional camcorder form factors.

In 2000, Sony released the ground-breaking HDW-F900. The HDW-F900 marked the beginning of digital cinema history as the world’s first 24p digital cinema camera. VENICE and other products followed in response to countless dialogues with cinematographers and image creators.

Existing products in the Sony range will form part of the Cinema Line include VENICE and FX9. VENICE has become a first choice for digital movie production, and the FX9 has an outstanding track record in documentary production. The next step will appeal to a wider spectrum of visual creators. Sony will be releasing and shipping this next addition to the Cinema Line, the FX6 camera by the end of 2020.

Each of the Cinema Line cameras will evolve with user feedback: The FX9 Version 3 upgrade, available in 2021, will see the addition of the S700PTP[i] allowing Remote Control of Sony’s camera, a Center Scan mode for Super 16mm lens and B4 Lens support with its adaptor as well as other features. In parallel, as of November 2020, the VENICE camera will see additional features in V6.0 version which will improve its operability in broadcast and live environments.

“The voice of our customer is critical to everything we do,” said Neal Manowitz, Deputy President of Imaging Products and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. “We have the deepest respect for filmmakers, cinematographers and storytellers, and will continue to evolve our product line to meet and exceed their demands. Just as our VENICE camera was designed to capture the emotion in every frame, our new Cinema Line expands that vision to allow a broader range of creators to push their boundaries further, and capture and create like they’ve never been able to before.”
