Sony FX6: Full format successor of the FS5 MKII with 10.2 MP sensor, 2xXLR , S-Log 3, 120 fps, exter

[16:02 tue,17.November 2020   by ]    

With the Sony FX6 with 10.2 MP full format sensor, Sony now presents the official successor of the Sony FS5 MK II. With its light-intensive, low-pixel-count CMOS sensor reminiscent of the Sony A7S III, Sony positions the new FX6 in its full-frame lineup between the Sony A7S III and the FX9.
With the proximity of the Sony A7S III sensor, the new Sony FX6 also gets some of its features. For example, the FX6, just like the A7S III, allows the sensor to be read at 120 fps as a full sensor readout without line skipping or binning in 4K (but without audio recording as with the A7S III). The FX6 also offers 4K DCI recording in 4096x2160 (up to max. 60p).


The dynamic range officially specified by Sony is 15+ f-stops together with the FX9 and Sony A7S III. Of the FX9 (and FS7), most Sony users will probably prefer the "Custom" mode with the associated fast (colour) workflows "Standard", "Still", "ITU 709" and now also "S-Cinetone" and "HLG" and on the other hand the "Cine EI" mode with the S-Log3/S-Gamut3 and S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine Gamma/Colour Space options.

Here is our overview of the different 8 and 10 bit format options of the Sony FX6:


In contrast to the Sony A7SII, the FX6 allows individual LUTs to be stored. As a dual ISO camera, the FX6 offers two native ISOs, which Sony specifies as 800 ISO and 12,800 ISO.

With a total of 627 phase detector AF sensors, the FX6 is expected to offer the same high-quality "Fast Hybrid" autofocus performance as the A7SIII and Sony FX9. In addition, the FX9&s well-known Face Storage and various Face Tracking Modes ("Face Priority AF", "Face Only AF" and said "Face Registration" / including Real-time AF. A focus shift is also possible on the FX6 via touch control on the monitor (but not Touch Tracking AF as on the A7S III). The hybrid AF of the FX6 works up to 4K 120 fps.


Similar to the A7S III, the new FX6 uses two card slots, each allowing two different card formats to be used: UHS-II/UHS-I SDCX cards and CFexpress Type A cards. A 160GB CFexpress card can accommodate 30 minutes in XAVC-I DCI/4K 60p, 170 minutes in XAVC-L 4K UHD 30p or 430 minutes in XAVC-L HD 30p.

Unlike the Sony A7S III, however, the FX6 features the FX9&s familiar built-in electronic ND filter, which - as with the FX9 - is operated via dedicated control buttons on the camera side (manual or auto-ND setting possible). The FX6 does not have a stabilised sensor, however. As with the FX9, metadata for stabilisation is generated via the integrated gyro sensor and can be used in post-production with appropriate software for subsequent stabilisation.

The FX6 uses a 3.5" touch LCD with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels as monitor. On its side are three buttons for PeakingPeaking im Glossar erklärt, Zebra and Assign 10 (user defined). All central camera settings can be adjusted via the Touch-LCD in addition to the classic camera menu. Waveform, histogram and vectorscope are also on board.


The Sony FX6 for Video Out provides 12G SDISDI im Glossar erklärt and HDMIHDMI im Glossar erklärt 2.0 connections. A 16 bit RAW output (via Atomos Shogun 7 up to max 4K DCI 60p) is also provided via the SDISDI im Glossar erklärt Out. Additionally USB-C, WIFI (2.4/5 GHz), Lanc, 2x XLRXLR im Glossar erklärt, TC In/Out and Sony&s Digital MI-Shoe are available for the connection of accessories such as the XLR-K3M.

Thus the Sony FX6 is 4-channel capable (24 bit) at the audio department and audio can be driven either via the two integrated XLRXLR im Glossar erklärt inputs incl. integrated stereo microphone or with the additional XLRXLR im Glossar erklärt adapter as 4xXLR audio solution.


As usual, the Sony FX6 housing is protected against dust and splash water. At just 890g, the magnesium body of the FX6 is even lower than that of the Canon EOS C70 (1,190g) and slightly higher than that of the A7S III (699g).

The Sony FX6 will be available from December this year at a price of 5,500 ,- Euro (exkl. VAT.).
