Sony FX6

The Sony FX6 digital cinema camera has a 10.2 MP 6K full-frame BSI CMOS image sensor offering 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 Real-Time Tracking. 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. This is an incredibly powerful and compact workhorse, that is packed with professional features at a compelling price point.

Record 16-bit linear RAW

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 CMOS full-frame 6K image sensor, using a single BNC cable to the camera’s 12G-SDI port.

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. The recorded 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 colours, 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.

Pro Res RAW Advantage

Creators are granted complete creative control of their video images in post-production, as Apple ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers incredible latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail – making ProRes RAW ideal for HDR workflows.

In addition to their groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW files can easily be edited on most modern Apple Mac systems.
