Sony PXW-FX9

The Sony PXW-FX9 has a 6K Full-Frame sensor offering a wide dynamic range with high sensitivity, low noise and over 15 stops of latitude. It includes a Fast Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system with Sony’s unique Eye AF and Dual Base ISO. Advanced image stabilization metadata information means even handheld footage can be transformed with Sony Catalyst Browse/Catalyst Prepare software in post-production to look as smooth as if it were shot with a gimbal. By adding the XDCA-FX9 Extension Unit to the back of your PXW-FX9 camera you can sort of create a more ENG-style shoulder mount style camera with RAW SDI output to a compatible Atomos recorder, additional I/O and power to your camera.

PXW-FX9

Record 16-bit linear RAW

(using the XDCA-FX9 Extension Unit)

Capture 16-bit linear RAW in a visually lossless 12-bit log Apple ProRes RAW format and make maximum use of Sony’s state of the art Exmor R Full Frame 6K Sensor, using a single BNC cable. The recorded 12-bit log format lets you capture 68 billion colour graduations preserving every important detail in your image, while still maintaining practical data rates.

These unprocessed files are extremely clean, preserving the maximum dynamic range, color accuracy and every detail, allowing for greater creativity in post-production with perfect skin tones and easily matched colors, ideal for both HDR and SDR (Rec.709) workflows. The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor also uses Sony’s Exmor R technology for improved sensitivity and noise reduction leading to cleaner RAW images.


16-bit Linear RAW
12-bit Log distributes brightness level evenly without noticeable difference. 16-bit linear distributes brightness level unevenly and is less efficient than 12-bit.

Slow and Quick Mode with
Variable Frame Rate (VFR)

Fully utilize the FX9’s highly configurable Slow and Quick format and record stunningly clean RAW files to suit your needs. Select frame rates from 1 - 180 in a variety of resolutions to match your scene. Capture every detail of action at up to DCI 2Kp180 continuous for absolutely stunning slow-motion footage.

Review these slow-motion shots directly on the Shogun7 itself whilst on set to make sure you captured the moment perfectly. You’re completely in charge of your RAW workflow.

Amazing 15+ stops of dynamic range

Utilize the FX9’s 15+ stops of dynamic range by viewing deeper blacks, brighter highlights and everything in between on the Shogun 7's 3000 nit Peak HDR screen. The Shogun 7’s premium 360 zone dynamic backlight screen, makes viewing any footage with contrast an absolute treat.

Take the guesswork out of shooting in a log workflow by using simple Slog3 and HLG monitor settings that let you shoot what you see to give all the flexibility you need for color grading and post-production.

Be sure you’re capturing the maximum dynamic range on set with unparalleled precision by using the advanced waveform tools, to ensure perfect exposure, color and white balance.
