Sony PXW-FX6 Camera Package

Daily $350.00
Weekly $1,050.00

The Sony FX6 Full-Frame Camera from Lightbulb Rentals 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 Sony 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. This 10.2 MP image sensor features back-side illumination for excellent low-light performance, 627 focal plane points for speedy phase-detection autofocus, and full-frame lens compatibility that produces a rich, immersive look. The sensor’s fast scan speed minimizes rolling shutter artifacts and supports high frame rates and quick autofocus responses.

Compared to the FX9, the FX6 differs in several specs; but many FX6 specs tick the same boxes and several improve upon the FX9:

It matches the FX9’s video capture up to DCI 4K60
Has the same S-Cinetone, S-Log3, and HLG gamma choices 
Outputs 16-bit raw like the FX9
Sony E lens mount
Offers the same 1/4 to 1/128 ND options
Also provides 2-channel XLR audio inputs
FX6 differences from the FX9:
4K capture vs 6K
Has a single 12G/6G/3G-SDI BNC port, trimming the FX9’s additional 3G-SDI port
Incorporates a timecode port but lacks the FX9’s genlock connector
Improved FX6 specs include:
An ISO range of 320 to 409,600 vs the FX9’s 320 to 102,400 range
Top frame rates of 120p in 4K and up to 240p in HD vs the FX9’s top 1080p in HD
Dual card slots compatible with both durable, highly efficient CFexpress Type A or widely available SDXC cards, compared to the FX9’s reliance on proprietary XQD cards and a single SD card option
