Full-Frame E-Mount Cinema Camera Sony FX6 Announced for December Release


People have waited for the FX6 to arrive for some time now and we were starting to lose hope that it would even come out in 2020 given how crazy things are in the world this year.

But the FX6 is not only making an appearance, it will be hitting retail this December 15th.

How much, you ask?

About $5,998 but a kit with the FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS lens will push it up to $USD 7,198, FStoppers reports.

From B&H Photo: “The FX6 Full-Frame Camera from Sony was developed to offer versatile, cine-style imaging in a truly compact form. With the ability to capture up to 15+ stops of dynamic range, Sony's S-Cinetone gamma for filmlike skin tones, and up to 10-bit, 4:2:2 XAVC-I recording, the FX6 is poised to both supplement your FX9 or VENICE capture and to nimbly take on documentary, gimbal, and drone shoots on its own. The FX6 camera combines a 4K full-frame Exmor R sensor with a BIONX XR engine for extremely sensitive capture in a range of settings using a base ISO of 800 as well as an ISO 12800 high-sensitivity mode for nuanced low-light scenes.”
