Sony has announced the brand new PXW-FX9 video camera, equipped with a full-frame Exmor R image sensor, fast Hybrid-AF, and S-Cinetone colour science.
The camera is capable of capturing 4K video, oversampled from a 6K full frame sensor, which offers over twice the surface area of a compared 4K Super-35 sensor. It has a dual base ISO (ISO800 and ISO4000) for more options in a variety of lighting situations. Sony is also claiming 15+ stops of dynamic range, and the camera will have a built in Variable-ND (similar to the FS5) that will allow users to easily adjust to changing light conditions.
Also announced was the XDCA-FX9 extension, which can be used with the FX9 camera for 16-bit RAW footage and D-Tap for production, and wired LAN and Dual Link capability for live streaming and file transfer. Sony also announced a FE C 16-35mm T3.1G lens, as part of their new cinema lens lineup.
The camera and extension are expected to be available early 2020. More information on the 16-35mm Cine lens is expected at a later date. Expected launch prices are as follows:
