Sony has launched the FX6 full-frame Cinema Camera ( ILME-FX6 ) in the US. It has a launch selling price of $5,998 and is now available to pre-order online from Amazon.com. You can also buy FX6 with SEL24105G 24-105mm lens bundle which has a pre-order price of $7,198. ( FX6 models: ILME-FX6T / ILME-FX6TK / ILME-FX6V / ILME-FX6VK )
Sony ILME-FX6 Cinema Line Full-Frame Camera has a lot in common with the recently launched Sony A7S3. It features the same 12MP sensor and offers 15+ stops of dynamic range. Since this uses the same sensor, you can get some great videos in challenging low light scenarious like the A7S3. FX6 can capture up to 120 fps at the 4K (QFHD) resolution and has S&Q quick modes for better creativity.
The new FX6 is powered by BIONZ XR image processing engine offering better, high-speed read out and offer better overall responsiveness. For good colors, you get S-Cinetone colour which we saw on the more expensive FX9 offering rich colours and natural skin tones.
Like many other Sony Full Frame Cameras launched recently, FX6 also comes with Real-time Eye AF and Face Detection. It has an hybrid Auto focus system, with 627 point focal plane phase-detection AF coverring approximately 89% of the image area.
