Operability and expandability for professionals

Example image

Lightweight, modular and robust

Despite its amazingly light 0.89-kg body, the magnesium-alloy FX6 is more than tough enough for the rigours of real-world shooting. A detachable Smart Grip puts key functions at your fingertips and is easily adjustable with a single button.
Usage image

Grab and shoot mobility

Ideal for low angle shooting, the smart handle is part of the FX6's modular design. It's easy to reconfigure for any application, including mounting in a gimbal, drone, or underwater housing.

Magnesium body and frame for high durability with light weight

To perform reliably in challenging environments, the main body, covers and top handle are made from a production-tested, lightweight magnesium alloy. The main frame achieves high strength and durability with minimum weight in order to maximise mobility.

Architecture to prevent thermal shut down

The custom ventilation system and chassis design help to prevent the thermal shut down of shooting0 at high frame rates and 4K (QFHD) resolutions. The number of heat sinks, the shape of air intakes and exhaust vents as well as the location of the low-noise fan1, and airflow paths have all been calculated with precision to ensure that optimum ventilation is achieved.

10-bit 4:2:2 recording

Record right on the camera with the amazing richness of 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 colour sampling, for far greater flexibility in image grading, post-processing and compositing.

All-Intra encoding available

As well as Long GOP, internal All-Intra encoding is now provided. This encodes every frame independently at bitrates up to 600 Mbps, to capture complex motion more accurately, and allow more efficient editing workflows.

16-bit RAW SDI output 

For demanding post-production workflows, 16-bit RAW output is available via SDI connection to compatible external recorders while XAVC-I files are simultaneously captured in-camera. RAW video output is 4096 x 2160 or 3840 x 2160 data from the image sensor with a choice of 120 / 100 / 59.94 / 50 / 29.97 / 25 / 24 / 23.98 frame rates.
Example image

Shooting modes that match creator workflows

The FX6 offers shooting modes with preset looks like S-Cinetone that produce great-looking shots in-camera, or S-Log3 / S-Gamut3 with Cine-EI mode that capture perfectly exposed images for post production.
Usage image

Scene File function allows easy look changes on-site

Four preset scene file types are available for SDR shooting (S-Cinetone, Standard, Still, ITU709) and two for HDR (HLG Live, HLG Natural) plus 16 slots for imported user 3D LUTs for your preferred look without post production.
