Cinema Line FX6 Camera
Image sensor with blazing fast readout speed
The back-illuminated full-frame Exmor RTM CMOS sensor, with 10.2 effective megapixels, boasts a blazingly fast data-readout speed along with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. An advanced color-filter array boosts color-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, minimizing 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-megapixel configuration enables high sensitivity with low noise throughout the camera's sensitivity range by optimizing the output signal from the sensor. Capture usable images in near-total darkness with an impressive ISO-expanded range up to 409600. The dynamic range is an impressively wide 15+ stops, 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.
4K High Frame Rate 120fps recording
Full-frame 4K (QFHD) recording at up to 120fps 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 five times slower than real time). The high-precision AF even allows beautiful full-frame bokeh to be achieved during slow-motion shooting, for impressive creative scope.
Acclaimed cinematic color 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 optimized for natural skin tones and mid-range colors, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction and powerful camera-matching and post-production possibilities.
Preset and User 3D LUT compatibility with Scene File
The Scene File function provides powerful color interpretation right in the camera, with a range of presets and custom User 3D LUT imports to fit your production or style requirements. Four preset scene file types are included for SDR shooting (S-Cinetone, Standard, Still, ITU709) and two for HDR (HLG Live, HLG Natural). A further 16 slots support User 3D LUT import to achieve custom looks, or for specific monitoring or color-space transforms.
10-bit HLG picture profile
A HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 color 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 color 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 (color grading required) Instant high-quality image (color grading not required)
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-gray range (18% gray), enabling a dynamic range of up to 15+ stops. Two color-gamut settings (S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine) make it easier to match the colors of footage shot with Sony's Cinema Line Cameras. Because the colors match, color grading is easier in post-production editing, making it more convenient when used along with other pro cameras.
