The very much anticipated Sony RX6 (successor to the Sony FS5 II cinema camcorder) will undoubtedly be revealed on 17 November
Sony has confirmed that the highly anticipated Sony FX6 full-frame cinema camcorder will be revealed on 17 November.
The E-mount Sony FX6, which the manufacturer has given the tagline “Ready to tell amazing stories”, is set to be officially announced in a live YouTube stream at 10:00 EST on 17 November, on the Sony | Camera Channel.
The link to the Livestream is below, and will obviously go live on the day. According to a report by Sony Alpha Rumors, this will be the manufacturer’s last announcement of the year; the rumoured Sony 16mm f/1.8 GM will apparently now be launched in early 2021, so the FX6 and the Sony A7C will be the final hurrah for 2020.
Sony has released the first image of its upcoming full-frame camcorder, the Sony FX6. This professional cinema camera has been teased and rumoured for the last year, but now Sony has told us that the FX6 will be on sale by the end of 2020.
The FX6 will become the baby in the new Cinema Line family of cameras that Sony announced today – which will include the Sony Venice which is used on some of the biggest TV dramas and movies in production today. Also in the brand new range would be the existing 6K Sony FX9 camcorder which was launched last year, that is primarily used by documentary filmmakers.
The full feature list of the new FX6 has yet to be announced but what we do know is that it will be a replacement for the highly-popular FS5 II camcorder – but will get a bigger full-frame sensor. The digital camera will also use Sony E-mount lenses.
Sony also announced that of the Cinema Collection range will continue to evolve with user feedback. The FX9 version 3 upgrade, slated for 2021, will see the addition of the S700PTP allowing Remote Control of Sony’s camera, a Center Scan mode for Super 16mm lens and B4 Lens support with its adaptor as well as other features. In November 2020, the Venice camera will discover a couple of additional features which will improve its operability in broadcast and live environments.
“At Sony, we celebrate and have the deepest respect for filmmakers, cinematographers, and storytellers. With Cinema Range, we’re tapping into our DNA from both the film industry and digital imaging prosumer market and combining it to develop new creative tools. This line of products will enable creators to push their creative boundaries further and capture the emotion in each and every frame.” says Claus Pfeifer, Head of Connected Content Acquisition, Media Solutions, Sony Professional Europe.
