Features

Full-Frame 6K Sensor
Fast Hybrid AF
Dual Base ISO
Cinematic Colour Science with S-Cinetone
Electronic Variable ND Filter
4K 4:2:2 10bit Internal Recording
2 XQD Card Slots
XAVC Intra / Long, MPEG HD422 Format

The sensor has a dual base ISO of 800 and 4000. This is a welcomed addition as the native ISO for the FS7 was 2000 so having the option to switch between the two will make the camera much more versatile. To change the base ISO you have to do this manually in the menu. The FX9 does not feature SLOG2 only SLOG3 with S-Gamut3 & S-Gamut3.Cine, this is because the SLOG2 gamma curve is designed for 8-bit whereas all of the codecs on this camera are 10-bit. Sony have also added a S-Cinetone colour profile which is aimed to bring the colour science from the VENICE to the FX9.
Out of the gate, the camera will have restricted frame rate options but Sony already has several firmware updates planned. On release the camera will be able to shoot QFHD full frame up to 30fps, 1080p full frame at up to 120 fps and QFHD S35 up to 60fps and 1080p S35 at up to 120fps. The future firmware updates will bring Full frame DCI 4K up to 60p, Full HD full frame up to 180fps and QFHD in Super 35 mode at up to 120fps while using an external recorder.
One other improvement that the FX9 has over the FS7 is the implementation of the same autofocus system as the latest Alpha series cameras. This means that the old slow contrast-based AF from the FS7 has gone and the new snappy Phase & contrast-based AF is here.The autofocus has 561 points and covers 94% of the horizontal and 96% of the vertical frame. You can also customise the autofocus, tweaking things like the AF transition between slow, for stuff like promo videos where you want slow smooth focus movements to fast. You can also change the AF subject shift sensitivity which defines how easily the focus is switched to another subject. This goes from locked if you are wanting to do a walk and talk for example to responsive which you may need to keep better general focus. The FX9 allows you to record up to four channels of audio with a range of different input options. You have an internal scratch mic, two XLR’s in the same position as the FS7, you can use a dual channel receiver with the MI shoe on the handle or you can now use the DWX series of drop in receivers and transmitters with the new XDCA -FX9 back module.

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 maximises full HD slow motion image quality with advanced oversampling technology.

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

Networked for High Mobility

Content Browser Mobile™** allows the PXW-FX9 to be controlled remotely from a smartphone or tablet computer via a Wi-Fi connection. Adjust the exposure level, zoom, Record/Stop and more via your mobile device – it’s ideal for single operator shoots. One-touch authentication is also possible with smartphones offering NFC connectivity.
FTP Transfer allows content files to be sent over the internet for remote storage on an FTP server even while shooting. In case of signal interruption, the system will automatically resume as soon as connection restored.
Trimming allows you to set start and end points in a clip, eliminating time-wasting transfers of unneeded content.
XDCAM air can upload proxy footage to the cloud from multiple camera operators in the field, so editing can start immediately. Uploaded content can be accessed securely from any location. News teams can even start logging clips while shooting is still going on, saving even more valuable time when a story’s breaking.
Wired LAN port with optional XDCA-FX9 allows connection of the FX9 to the Internet with a standard Ethernet cable, allowing files to be streamed or transferred by FTP.
Dual Link Cellular is enabled with optional XDCA-FX9 and uses two cellular networks in combination to provide an even more reliable network connection. FX9 is compatible with standard USB cellular dongles from most networks. (Please check for most appropriate service provider for your region. Standard network fees will apply.)
High quality Sony QoS Streaming to Network RX station (sold separately) and XDCAM air by Sony allows images to be streamed live for viewing at a remote location
