Cinematic color science with S-Cinetone™
S-Cinetone is the default look of FX9 that’s tuned to meet the requirements of today’s content creators with rich mid-range colors, alluring facial tones and a softer tonal look—developed with the same expertise as Sony’s world-leading VENICE digital cinematography camera. S-Cinetone means your content looks fresh and vivid straight out of the camera, with subjects that really stand out while retaining plenty of latitude in post-production thanks to the high-performance full-frame image sensor.
Accelerate your workflow with User 3D Luts and HLG*
User Created 3D LUTs make it easy to customize FX9’s look to your preferences. It is possible to import LUTs files from an SD card and store up to 16 files on the FX9’s internal memory and switch between them as needed. This is particularly useful for shooting in S-Log3, allowing you to preview on camera whatever custom look you create.
FX9 can record HDR using S-Log3 or Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)*.

•HLG* delivers content quickly without additional color grading making it an ideal choice for day-to-day shooting, viewing, and editing workflows.
Selectable Frame Rates in Both Full-Frame & Super 35
Choose your desired frame rate from 1fps up to 180fps* for impressive quick- and slow-motion footage. FX9 creates an immersive image with a wide-angle look and shallower depth of field provided by its full-frame sensor in combination with quick and slow motion. Engage your audience with this new creative look. FX9 also offers a Quality priority setting** that maximizes full HD image quality using full-frame 6K scan mode or Super 35 4K scan mode with advanced oversampling technology.
Super 35 2K imager scan mode prioritizes frame rates, so image quality may be reduced depending on the shooting environment. In this instance, the settings below are recommended.
Capture the action with enhanced Fast Hybrid AF
Effortlessly track fast-moving subjects with pin-sharp focus, even when using wide-lens aperture settings to maintain a shallow depth of field with the camera’s full-frame sensor. Developed by Sony’s α camera engineers, enhanced Fast Hybrid AF combines phase detection AF for fast, accurate subject tracking with contrast AF for exceptional focus accuracy. In addition, Face Detection intelligently recognizes and locks on to human faces.
The dedicated 561-point phase detection AF sensor covers approximately 94% of the whole image area width and 96% of height, allowing consistently accurate, responsive AF tracking, even with fast-moving subjects.
Eye AF & Focus Touch Control*
FX9 is the world’s first professional camcorder with Sony’s world-leading eye-tracking technology**. High-speed, high-precision image processing maintains a pin-sharp focus.

Use higher-density settings with a slower shutter speed for breathtaking artistic effects.
Proven ergonomics & accessory compatibility
FX9 chassis is the latest refinement of the revolutionary FS7 design, so you can be sure it will feel great to shoot with from almost any position, while also offering compatibility with a large proportion of the countless FS7 accessories, including U-series batteries, chargers, E-mount lenses, plus arms and lens adapters.*
The control arm is easily adjusted without tools, so FX9 adapts effortlessly to your physique and preferred shooting style—handheld, at waist level, or shoulder-mounted. The smart grip also features an updated design, more compact than before while still holding all the key shooting controls, allowing you to concentrate on the scene without distractions. The FX9 also introduces a micro USB interface for improved responsiveness and support for a wrist strap.
To withstand the rigors of real-world shooting, FX9 has a robust magnesium chassis which is almost one third lighter than aluminum equivalent, while offering high impact resistance. FX9’s buttons, dials, and other parts are sealed to prevent dust and water spray from entering for even greater operational reliability.**
*BP-U30 and XDCA-FS7 are not compatible with the FX9.
**Dust- and water-resistance does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

Stable, shake-free handheld footage
Advanced image stabilization 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. Unlike in-camera or lens stabilization, metadata combining FX9’s built-in gyro and lens information allows you to creatively choose the balance between the level of shake-compensation and the resolution of trimmed 4K imagery. This feature requires Sony E-mount lens and allows for far faster processing than conventional NLE stabilization workflows
