Capturing the impossible

Make sure your story’s always clear with enhanced Fast Hybrid AF that tracks your subject with unprecedented speed, smoothness and precision. Its impact is transformative for premium documentary, commercial and event applications.

Shoot in comfort, expand your horizons

The FX9 revolutionizes full-frame cinematography with peerless ergonomics and advanced technology for on-the-go shooting. The world’s first full-frame electronic variable ND filter* transforms possibilities for shooting in variable lighting conditions. Built-in Wi-Fi and 12G-SDI support advanced workflows while the optional XDCA-FX9 extension unit further expands the operational possibilities of the PXW-FX9.

6K Full-Frame "Exmor R" sensor for stunning picture quality

The camera’s full-frame 6K sensor provides superb recording in DCI 4K* Ultra HD and HD resolutions. Powerful image processing with debayering and oversampling ensures image quality beyond the limits of conventional Super 35 mm sensors. The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor also uses Sony’s Exmor R technology for improved sensitivity and noise reduction. Compared to a 4K Super 35 mm sensor, the FX9’s 6K sensor has over twice the surface area while providing a wider angle of view and shallower depth of field.

*DCI 4K (4096 x 2160 at 17:9 recording) will be available with future firmware release.

Phenomenal 15+ stops dynamic range for limitless expression

The FX9 offers an exceptional 15+ stops of dynamic range—beyond the normal range of human perception—allowing for unprecedented creative freedom in color grading and post. Camera operators can concentrate on framing the scene they want while relying upon the FX9 to capture every nuance and detail using either 4K 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording or 16-bit RAW external recording.* In grading, colorists can find color and detail beyond the normal viewing abilities of the camera operator to create a final image that exactly portrays the mood of the scene.

* RAW recording requires future firmware release, XDCA-FX9 and external recorder.

 

Selectable Frame Rates in Both Full-Frame & Super 35

 Choose your desired frame rate from 1fps up to 180fps* for impressive quick and slow-motion footage. FX9 creates an immersive image with a wide-angle look and shallower depth of field provided by its full-frame sensor in combination with quick and slow motion. Engage your audience with this new creative look. FX9 also offers a Quality priority setting** that maximizes full HD image quality using full-frame 6K scan mode or Super 35 4K scan mode with advanced oversampling technology.

Super 35 2K imager scan mode prioritizes frame rates, so image quality may be reduced depending on the shooting environment. In this instance, the settings below are recommended.

  • Cine EI mode: Set EI gain lower and exposure level higher instead.
  • Custom mode: Choose the gamma category setting of Original (S-Cinetone) or STD (STD1 to 6).

· *Up to 120fps with Ver1.0. Full-HD 180fps will be supported with future firmware

· **In full-frame scanning mode: selectable at 1–30fps/in super 35 scanning mode: selectable at 1–60fps. Quality priority setting is recommended if desired frame rate is available.
