What to Look Forward to
The Sony PXW-FX9 promises stunning 4K imagery made possible by oversampling a huge resolution full-frame sensor. It will feature shallow depth-of-field, cinematic bokeh and 15+ stops of dynamic range. This combined with their Dual Base ISO will let the user capture minutae details in a shot ranging from subtle shadows to spectacular highlights.
Fast Hybrid AF will allow for unprecedented speed, smoothness and precision when capturing your subject. This will see geat applications in documentary, commercials and sporting events.
Enhanced ergonomic design and advanced on-the-go shooting technology will make the FX9 one of the most popular full-frame cameras for cinematography. It also features electronic variable ND filter, first in the world and likely to be very well received by users working in a variety of lighting conditions.
The new PXW-FX9 combines the best elements of Sony’s previous models. It takes the Full-frame power, 15 stops latitude and Dual Base ISO function from the CineAlta, combines it with the 4K 4:2:2 10bit recording feature of the FS7-series and adds the Auto Focus Algorithm of the Alpha series.
Overall the new Sony FX9 seems extremely promising and we can’t wait to see what footage will be shot by filmmakers once the camera officially hits the market!
